Poppies With Caryn

September 10, 2020

Hello!  While we are getting ready for our next release on Sept 24th I will be featuring some of my favorite Design Team projects from our Summer release.  They are so amazing and they are worth taking a second look!  I cannot wait to show you the 14 stamp sets and 15 die sets that we have coming out on September 24th.   They are sooo good! In the meantime, enjoy this great project by Caryn!

Hello there, here today sharing a card featuring some fabulous products from the latest Summer release.  
The card features two new sets – Big Congrats and Poppies.  I thought it was high time I dusted off my Avery Elle Liquid Watercolours and the Poppy images in this set are perfect to show off the delicate colours and effects you can create. 

First I stamped the the poppy garland image in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.  I “coloured in” the image with plain water to begin with so I could drop tiny amounts of the liquid watercolour onto the design.  I love the way the two colours merge and mingle together creating an almost translucent appearance – just like a real poppy!  I used Cherry and Fizz liquid watercolours on the flowers and a combination of Lemongrass and Jungle  for the foliage.

I set the image aside to dry and then die cut the Congrats die from the Big Congrats set in white.  I was going to leave. it like that for a tone on tone effect but I decided it needed a bit “more” so added versamark to the bottom half and then heat embossed it in gold for a dipped effect.  I stamped and heat embossed the “So Happy For You” block also.

Finally I assembled my card.  I wanted the card to be a bit bigger than the standard A2 size so I created a custom size of 4′ x 7′.  This gave my design a much better look and allowed me no avoid the card looking crowded.  Sometimes we forget we can create a card ANY size we like, lol!  I added the die cut floral image using foam tape and the congrats sentiment die cuts using liquid adhesive.  For a final flourish I added some enamel dots to tie in the gold on the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Have a great day!
