Hello crafters.

Hope you have enjoyed the hop so far. If you are following the hop, you should have found your way from Laurie Patterson. And you can find your way back to the beginning of the hop Here.

The Arch Of Flowers is such a cute set. I've stamped it onto some watercolor cardstock with Permanent Black Ink on the diagonal on the top right and bottom left corners. I then painted it in with the 36 Pan Watercolor Set and set it aside to dry. I used the Hosta 3D Embossing Folder to dry emboss a white piece of cardstock and adhered it to a white card base with the Ultra Sticky Double-Sided 1/2" Tape. 

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments with the One-Go Birthday Greetings Stamp Set, and used the coordinating Dies to cut them out. It is one stamp, so, they are stamped and cut all at once so you can have lots of sentiments ready to go when you need them. I adhered the watercolor panel to the card with the Ultra Sticky Tape and then adhered the sentiment with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

Well if you were able to snag this Dazzling Dahlia Bundle when it was released through the Altenew app early, I bet you cannot wait to make some beautiful things with it as well.

I stamped the images onto some craft colored cardstock, and used some masking paper to layer the images onto my cardstock panel how I wanted the layout to be. I also stamped the hummingbird and one flower onto another piece of craft cardstock. I used the stencils and some white pigment ink to color in the images and then used some Inktense colored pencils and water to color in the images. (Very little water)

When it was dry, I added some dimension with the Woodless Coloring Pencils to all the pretty things. Stamped the sentiment with Obsidian Black Ink. Used the Dies to cut the flower and hummingbird out and adhered them to the panel with Instant Dimension Foam Tape. And then adhered the panel to a white card base with some tape runner.

I was not sure how I wanted to color the Linear Spiral Stamp once I had stamped it with Permanent Black Ink. I finally decided that I wanted to color it with Artist Markers in the colors R801, B001, B003, B526, C005, C007, C015, C006, R826. Cut it down and adhered it to a white card base. I stamped the sentiment on another piece of white cardstock, cut it out and adhered it to the card with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

For my final card, I have a piece of paper from the Celebrate 6 x 6 Paper Pack that I wanted to use, but if I cut it down, I would lose all that I wanted to still have on the paper. So, I created something similar with the 36 Pan Watercolor Set and a piece of watercolor cardstock. I stamped the outline layers of the flowers and leaves from the Precious Doodles Stamp Set in Permanent Black Ink on another piece of watercolor cardstock. Then using the solid layers, I stamped them in watercolor fashion with crisp dye inks, then spritzing with water on the outline layer.

I cut them out with the Dies and then stamped the other images around where I planned on adhering the flowers on the watercolored background. I used Citrus Burst, Frayed Leaf, Mountain Pine, Pink Pearl, Canyon Clay, Pink Quartz, Coral Bliss, Pinkalicious, and Turquoise Crisp Dye Inks. I deepend up the flowers and leaves with some Artist Markers in C004, Y207, R400, R301, R502, and R504. Adhered the flowers and leaves as well as another sentiment from the One-Go Birthday Greetings with Instant Dimension Foam Tape, and then adhered it to a white card base that I've colored the outer edges with Mountain Pine Crisp Dye Ink.

  13. Hi Linda! Congrats on the guest designer gig. You posted SO.MUCH.AMAZING.WORK! I was especially interested in seeing the card you posted with the "Celebrate" patterned paper lookalike background. I LOVE that idea, because I have had the same issue with not being able to get quite the right cut on my 12"x12" pieces of that paper (but I LOVE it).

    I also really enjoyed seeing your other projects, too. Your linear spiral is delightful! Awesome work!

  14. Adorable cards! I like how you stamped the arch of flowers on the diagonal. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Gorgeous cards! I really love the one with the background stamp.
