PS I have been posting from my stack of drafts as it has been school holidays and crafting has been on the down low. Should have some exciting new projects to share very soon :)

Both these cards are stamped using Gelatos from Faber Castell. The first card uses a Stampin' Up stamp. I coloured the inside with pink first and then used purple around the edges and green for the leaves and stems. I lightly misted the stamp with water and stamped, repeating this three times. I used distress ink with my ink blending tool around the edges. The background is a leftover from Creative Chemistry 101. On my yellow card base I stamped the Prima Notary stamp I coloured with Big Brush Markers.
I am not the best at stamping with gelatos. I need to do some more work at it lol. But so many techniques, so little time!

You can do this with any shaped die and once you get the hang of it it's a quick fun technique to make a card :) Let me know if you would like a video tutorial . . .

I started with this image that I stamped in Archival and coloured with a mix of Inktense and Staedler watercolour pencils. I then chose three patterned papers from the Crate Papers Clementine stack to follow this sketch with. I bought this stack to challenge myself to use papers I wouldn't normally.
For the background layer I chose chevrons, my strip is stripes and instead of a wavy border I chose a piece of paper from the stack that had skinny border like images on it and cut out the one with the flowers and adhered it to the stripy paper. I added a teeny dot of red Liquid Pearls to the middle of each of those flowers.
Next I chose a red and a green Prima flower and glued them together and onto the card. I added some perfect pearls to the middle of them too. Then I had a teeny accident and had to add the green flower which made the card unbalanced so I added the red one as well and added liquid pearls to the middle of these too lol. I hand cut the banner and used my Martha Stewart score board to score where wanted the folds to be. I used a triple layer of foam tape in the middle to pop it off the card. The sentiment is from Mpress stamped with Vermillion archival.
