To a Special Woman

Last week I shared sneak peeks of some cards I had over on the Lil' Inker Designs blog for Flashback Friday.  Today I wanted to share the full cards with you.

To celebrate, our flashback items featured will also be ON SALE for a limited time! 

These three cards feature Doodled Daisies StampsDoodled Daisies DiesVintage Label Sentiment StampsVintage Label Die & the Mom Word Die.  

First up is this card with a focus on mom since Mother's Day is right around the corner.  I created my background by using several of the stamps in the Doodled Daisies stamp set.  The style of the flowers are very on trend with all of the adult coloring books that you see everywhere!  I then die cut a white label with the Vintage Label Die and stamped the sentiment from the Vintage Label Sentiment stamp set.  I watercolored some paper with Zig Real Brush markers and then used the Mom Word Die to cut the large Mom focal point.  

Tip: Because "mom" was going to hang over the edge of the label, I die cut some thicker watercolor paper with the Mom Word Die and attached them together to provide support.

For this second card, I used the same Doodled Daisies Stamps as I did in the first card but with a totally different look.  I created a pattern using the daisies and as I finished each flower I embossed them in white.  This helped me to see where to stamp next.  After that was completely done, I used some cheap watercolor cake paints to color in the images.  Next, I die cut the label from vellum with the Vintage Label Die and embossed the images and sentiment onto it.  I added some flowers in the corners, die cut with the coordinating Doodled Daisies Dies.

For my last card I wanted to try something a little different with these sets.  I started by placing my Doodled Daisies Dies on my card front that I had die cut a border using the Dual Dotted Rectangles Dies.  I then ran them through the die cut machine.  Next, I took some watercolor paper and placed it under the die cut cardfront panel so that I could line up my stamps and stamp them through the windows I had created.  I used my Misti to be sure I got them exactly where I wanted them. When that was done, I pulled out my Zig Real Brush markers and colored my images.  When I was done, I popped the cardfront panel up with foam tape and added the sentiments that I had embossed in white from the Vintage Label Sentiment stamp set.

In this photo you can see the dimension a little better.
