Spellbinders Just Add Color- Peonies Blossoms

Welcome back, friends! I have a TON of photos to share in this post, so please bear with me! I was incredibly inspired by this new collection by Spellbinders- the JUST ADD COLOR COLLECTION designed by the talented Stephanie Low! This collection is full of gorgeous florals that, true to its name, you can just add color to and create some stunning cards!

 

For the card that I show in my video, I used the PEONIES BLOSSOMS stamp set. This set has four floral images that you can mask together or, like I did, stamp out and fussy cut to then arrange on a card. I simply colored in the floral images with my STYLEFILE markers and then fussy cut them all out.

I added some subtle dots to the background of my card base by  applying some of the new NUVO DREAM DROPS over a Heidi Swapp stencil. The color of dream drops that I used here is called, CLOUD 9, and its a white drop that has a pink shimmer to it. So pretty!

I arranged my fussy cut flowers over the background with a mix of foam adhesive and craft glue, and then finished it off with a sentiment and a few sequins from a mix by DRESS MY CRAFT.

This next card is created using the MANDALA BOUQUET stamp set. This set has the gorgeous floral image along with the big mandala image. I plan to use the mandala in the future, but for these cards I just used the flowers.

I did create this first card live on my YouTube channel. I again used DREAM DROPS over my Heidi Swapp stencil to create the background. Then, I did some ink blending over the dots. My flowers are stamped out with Brutus Monroe DETAIL INK and then again colored with STYLEFILE MARKERS. I then fussy cut the flowers, as well as some extra leaves that I stamped and colored as well. I arranged them on the front of my card with foam adhesive and liquid glue, and then stamped the sentiment. I trimmed a little extra off the bottom of my card panel, and then adhered it over some striped washi tape.

These two cards use many of the same supplies, but both have different looks! One is bright and colorful, and the other is more subtle and pretty. I love how they both turned out though!

Thanks for stopping by! I loved creating with these stamps and Im sure they will inspire many more of my cards in the future!

Until next time,

    I came over from Yana’s post about ways to use Nuvo drops and sure glad I did. Your card is fabulous. Never thought of using my drops in this way and can’t wait to give it a try. Thank you for inspiring me to use my tools in other ways!
