Happy Thursday, Pinkfresh friends! Yasmin here sharing with you a “Charming Floral Wreath” card made using Charming Floral Wreath Stamp and Charming Floral Wreath Die sets. Along with these beautiful sets, I also will be using other dies by Pinkfresh. So, without further ado let’s jump right into the step by step on how I made it.
To begin with, I started by creating the card panel, so to that I placed inside my MISTI stamping tool a Strathmore watercolor panel. Therefore, once I’ve had the card panel into place, I lined up facing down the Diagonal Bars Background Stamp over the card panel and I went ahead to pick up the stamp with the stamping tool door.
Then, I went ahead to get the card panel prepped using lot of embossing powder tool thus, after I had that step done, I went ahead to get the image stamped with embossing ink 3X for a better impression.
Moving along, after I’ve had stamped the card panel, I removed it from the stamping tool, and I covered with white embossing powder. Then, I heated set the powder using my heat gun embossing tool and once, I’ve had the card panel heat embossed I temporarily tape it down over a clipboard because, I wanted to add a quick wash of watercolor.
So, right after I’ve had added the wash of color to the card panel, I’ve set the card panel aside to let the water-coloring dry. Meanwhile, I went ahead to place inside my MISTI stamping tool another watercolor panel, and once the card panel was into place I went ahead to line up on one side the outline wreath image from the Charming Floral Wreath Stamp.
Thus, after the wreath image was lined up with the card panel, I went ahead to get it stamped with Misty Coast Ink on one side and then I turned the card panel and I went ahead to get it stamped once again in the other side of the watercolor panel. Lastly, after I’ve had both outline wreath images stamped, I quickly went ahead to get the water-coloring done so therefore, for the water-coloring I’ve used a mix of cool Purple, Burgundy, Green, Blue, Grey hues which I’ve had mixed previously on my mixing palette using my Pinkfresh Watercolor Collection.
Finally, after I’ve had water-colored both wreaths I set them aside to dry, and in the meantime I started the assembling for the card so, to do that I trimmed the edges down from the card panel a bit smaller than the card base and I adhered the backing of it with double-side tape to an A2 top folding white card base. Next, I stacked and adhered in the center of the card panel a dimensional die-cut circle which I’ve had previously created using the largest die from the Inverted Stitched Scallop Circles then right after that, I mounted a sentiment which I’ve had stamped on a piece of white cardstock with Regal Kiss Ink. And soon after, I glued down with liquid glue (as shown in the image above) 2 leafy branch die-cutting pieces which I’ve had also previously create using Leafy Branch Die and white cardstock.
Last but not least, I lined up the coordinated die for the Charming Floral Wreath Die Set and, once I had it line up I ran them through the die-cut machine to die-cut each side of the wreath out of the watercolor card panel. So, once I had the die-cutting pieces done, I went ahead to repeat the same step but this time to die-cut each side of the wreath out plain white cardstock because, I wanted to add dimension creating a dimensional floral wreath so, I stacked each side of the wreath and I glued them down with liquid glue (as shown in the image above) Finally, as finishing touches, I glued down here and there with liquid glue pink jewels from the Essentials: Jewel Mix set as well as tiny dots of glossy accent to the berries and the center of the flowers for a dimensional and sparkly look. With that being said, thank you for stopping by we hope you have enjoyed reading the step by step on how I’ve created this Charming Floral Wreath card showcasing stamp and die sets by Pinkfresh.
