Honeysuckle Butterfly and Snowy Scenes - By Florence

Hi everyone
I hope you are all have a wonderful weekend.

Today I would like to share two cards I made using the Honeysuckle Butterfly set and the Snowy Scene set. 



I dabbed some dye based ink onto a large stamp block. I didn't dilute the ink, I just let the ink separate naturally on the block.  
I then placed a piece of white coated card stock, lightly, onto the inked block.  
I then stamped the Honeysuckle image onto the inked card, using black Archival Ink.  
I added a little bit of extra color, to certain areas, using a damp paint brush and some ink left on the block.  
I then mat and layered as seen.


For my second card I took a piece of white card and laid it over the top of it a mask and dry embossed it using a light box and a embossing tool. 
I then removed the mask and attached it to the raised embossed side of the card, matching it up to the embossed pattern, and colored it using a sponge and some ink.
I cut the green ornate square of card using a die and punched out a square of plain white card, just trimming it slightly.  
I then stamped my pretty little house onto the smaller white square using green Distress Ink, colored it in using a damp paint brush and ink and then edged the square with more Distress Ink.  
I then assembled the card as seen adding a little gem.

Thank you for calling in.  Do check out the fantastic projects made by the Design Team.

Happy Stamping

  9. Two stunners, as usual Florence! I have quite a bit of glossy white card and paper and apart from using it with a brayer it's been taking up space! Thank you for not only sharing these but also for sharing how you made them with us. I will be playing with the glossy white card and paper as your creations have inspired me! Off to play for a little bit now Karen xx

  10. I love the gorgeous rich autumn tints of the first card, and then the second has that pretty embossed stencil background and the snowy house with that monotone green which goes so well with the background, snd I love the die cut mat too. x

  12. Interesting that you've used the colour palette of red & green for both cards & yet created such a different ambience in each one, the first warm to reflect the images & the likewise the second cool for the wintery scene. The textured embossing & inking of the background reminds me of a ceramic tile.
