Simon Says Stamp - BRILLIANT CONEFLOWER Friendship Card



Hello Lovelies! I hope you are ready, because we have SOOO many pretties to show you during STAMPtember®! Speaking of pretties, I think today's card may qualify in that category.


The Brilliant Coneflower Embossing Folder design is an absolute delight to color. With the help of a few blending brushes and Distress Ink, we will bring our trio of flowers to life.


You don't really have to worry about being precise with this project; we are going for a dreamy effect and a lot of softness, we want our flowers to glow!


Let's take a look at the key supplies.

PICTORIAL GUIDE

EMBOSSING AND DETAILED INK-BLENDING

PART 1

  • Shaded Lilac with a Large Blending Brush on the top and right side

  • Picked Raspberry with a Large Blending Brush around the perimeter of the embossed Coneflowers

  • Wild Honey with a Round Detail Brush for the flower centers

  • Spiced Marmalade with a Round Detail Brush for highlighting the flower centers



PART 2

  • Wilted Violet with a Flat Detail Brush on random sections of the flower petals

  • Twisted Citron with a Flat Detail Brush on the stems

  • Crushed Olive with a Flat Detail Brush on segments of the stems

  • Mowed Lawn with a Flat Detail Brush over most of the stems


 

SPLATTERING

  • Place a pea-sized dot of Picket Fence Distress Paint onto your craft surface, spritz ~ 3 times with water to dilute and then mix with a Splatter Brush

  • Splatter the entire embossed cardstock with the white paint


 

DIE-CUTTING

  • Ink-blend Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry ink onto a scrap of cardstock

  • Die-cut the "enjoy" sentiment out of the ink-blended cardstock and a second time out of another scrap of white cardstock

  • Adhere the "enjoy" layers together with craft glue

  • Ink-blend Rusty Hinge onto a piece of white cardstock and then stamp the 'Token of.." sentiment from the Enjoy Phrases Stamp Set in Intense Black ink onto the ink-blended cardstock and trim to a strip

  • Pop-up the sentiment strip with some foam tape or foam dots

  • Embellish with Orange Fields Sequins



 

I hope you can see why I love Ink-blending!



The paint-splatter adds a further touch of whimsy to this card.



The pop of color on the sentiments help them stand out and the sequins pull it all together!



Time to give this handmade happiness to one of your besties!


 

A lot of love went into this card but I think that it was totally worth it.


Thank you for stopping by and hope that you will be back! Happy Crafting!
