Wishful Wildflowers is a set that I could color over and over again!! I want to use ALL THE COLORS!!! I started by stamping the image with Caviar Ink (which is Copic friendly) onto heavyweight white cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers and added details with polychromos colored pencils and a gel pen. The bottom of the panel was cut along the stamped image and mounted onto fun foam for added dimension. I adhered some black & white striped pattern paper to a top folding card base and then added the stamped panel on top. The Thank You Word Die was cut out of purple and black cardstock, offsetting the two to create a slight drop shadow. I also stamped a small butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies 3 set, die cut it and some fun foam with the Coordinating Die and colored with colored pencils. The finishing touch (no card is finished without sequins, in my opinion) was a sprinkling of sequins from the Pink Diamond Mix. I also added some shimmer marker to the sentiment die cut for a little more bling.

For my second card, I wanted to create a much softer look. I have several weddings coming up this summer and thought the Wildflower Banner set would make a beautiful wedding card!! This set has eight different sentiments to place in the banner. I decided to stamp this image with clear embossing ink and heat emboss with white ink. I haven’t used my Inktense colored pencils in a while, so I pulled those out along with a water brush. I wet the part of the image that I wished to color and touched the water brush to the pencil, then the water brush to the wet part of the paper. The “So Very Happy For You” sentiment was embossed with silver embossing powder. I also mixed metallic silver ink with water and splattered it around the image. The panel was die cut with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small) and matted with yellow paper, then adhered to a top-folding card base. Sequins from the Pink Diamond Mix completed the card. Now I want to make cards with all of the other sentiments…they are wonderful!!!

  1. These cards are just beautiful – love that soft pastel watercolor card but my goodness that bold gatefold card with the gorgeously colored flowers might be my favorite. What a great way to use those great flower stamps!!

  2. Such different cards – the first is bold and bright.
    The second is more muted and soft.
    Both are fantastic. think the first is my
    favorite though.
    thanks for sharing.

  3. Fantastic cards! Love both of them, especially the first one – I love the color combo and the contrast as well!

  4. OMG! These are so pretty! I especially love the first card. The colors really pop and the butterfly is a sweet detail 🙂

  5. Love the die cut edge and intense colors on the first card. Love the softness of the second. I couldn’t choose a favorite!

  6. I can see why the Wishful Wildflowers is a set that you want to color over and over again!! I want to use ALL THE COLORS!!! Caviar Ink is a new product for me so excited to find this. Love the use of polychromos colored pencils and a gel pen for the detail in this card. Your second card as a softer look is perfect contrast to the first. This is so sweet and innocent for more intimate occasions for sure.

  7. Your cards are stunning. I especially love your first card because of the way your created the beautiful colors on the petals:)

  8. I am liking what i see of the wildflower banner stamp, might be on my never ending wish list to have in my craft room, maybe one day i will be lucky, fingers crossed. thanks for sharing your cards.

  9. The wildflower banner card in the soft colors is beautiful! It may be that I have a bias for pastels. I love all the colors you used on the card — they all complement one another well, including the misting.

  10. Both cards are lovely, but I was especially drawn to the first! Your coloring is wonderful! I love all the details you added with your Polychromos Pencils. Aren’t they fantastic?!!
