Simple colouring with cardstock

We all love to colour our stamped images in, whether that’s with ink, pens, pencils or paints. But what about keeping it simple with coloured cardstock. This allows you to play with bold colouring to allow your design to pop and allows you to make many in one go as it is that simple!

Simple colouring with cardstock

Creating the coloured images

To start off, stamp a variety of the flowers in embossing ink onto Peony and Azalea Hero Hues Cardstock. Cover these with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder and heat set.

Next, stamp a variety of the foliage onto Pesto and Palm Hero Hues cardstock, again in embossing ink to cover with gold embossing powder.  

Once you have stamp and heat embossed a large stash of flowers, use the coordinating Altenew Charming Doodles dies to cut out the heat embossed images.   

Adding interest to the background

For the card panels, trim down a piece of Lemon Drop and Innocent Pink Gina K Cardstock down to 5.5″ x 4.25. Next, using metallic paints to add white and gold paint splatter to the background and leave to one side.  

Die-cut two white circles out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock. Using Twilight Catherine Pooler Designs ink to stamp a sentiment onto the circles. These script sentiments come from the Altenew Floral Frame stamp set. With a blending brush, ink blend a soft ink around one side of the circle, softly fading this out.   

Assembling the cards

After the panels are dry, foam mount these onto 5X7″ card bases. Next, start to assemble the flowers and foliage around the circle.  To create interest, using 3D  foam pads to create dimension and depth. Don’t be afraid to position some of the die-cuts underneath the circle as well as layering on top.  

 To finish the sentiments off, add a small secondary heat embossed sentiment strip on black card. This will pop off the card and add further interest.   Lastly, finish the card off with a few sequins scattered around the card.

Mixed media Christmas card

I had a real urge to create a mixed media card today, and I wanted to do this with a Christmas card. It isn’t necessarily a traditional style Christmas card, more of a subtle nod to Christmas, other than the obvious sentiment on the front.
