A Few Ways to Floral

Floral stamps and cards have got to be one of my favorites to create! There’s so many different looks you can achieve with florals. I did a few cards for today’s post. Lets take a look!

Simple Watercolor

One easy way to create with florals is to keep them simple. Let them do all the work for you. For this card, I stamped the WILDFLOWERS stamp set onto some Bristol Smooth cardstock using a light brown color. Then, I colored the blooms in using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I love my Zigs!

These are a watercolor marker, so you can color on a bit of pigment, and then pull out the colors using water. I typically use a waterbrush to pull the color around. Start with just a bit of color! These markers are saturated so just a little color goes a long way. You can always add more color if you feel you need it!

After the flowers were completely colored, I added the sentiment by stamping a verse from the TRUSTING VERSES stamp set from Scrapbook.com. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold onto vellum, and then added it over the card.

Sometimes, going simple with your cards packs the most punch.

All The Colors

My second floral card is much like my first, in that I simply stamped and colored. However, instead of using some muted, earthy tones to color, I decided to go bold with rainbow roses!

The stamped image is the ROSE BLOSSOMS stamp set from Scrapbook.com. I again colored in the image with my Zig brushes, but I tried a rainbow color theme. I started with reds on the left side and moved through the rainbow spectrum over to purples on the right.

The sentiment on this card is stamped in black using the CARDS FOR KINDNESS stamp set. Then, the last thing I did was add gold watercolor splatters.

Colored Pencils

My final card in today’s post again features the ROSE BLOSSOMS stamp set but this time I colored it using colored pencils.

I’m not the best at using colored pencils, but Im learning! Colored pencils do take a little more time and patience, but the results can be beautiful. I used the Altenew Woodless Colored Pencils to color the flowers on this card.

The background for this card is created by masking off the edges of the card base, and then ink blending some yellow onto the paper. I then added some gold splatters, and stamped the sentiment with the UPLIFTING VERSES stamp set from Scrapbook.com.

Then, I layered on all the rose blooms I colored and fussy cut. Some with foam adhesive and some with liquid adhesive.

Hope this sparks some floral creativity for you today!

Until next time,
Marie Nicole
