For my project, I made this clean and simple card featuring Catherine Pooler Inks, a stamp set from Simon Says Stamps, and my go-to coloring medium, Spectrum Noir Markers.

Although I don’t do many floral cards… yet… this is one of my favorite floral stamp sets.  I’m using Sketch Tulip Bouquet as my focal point for this card.  I just love the sketchy look of the flowers.

To stamp out the image, I’m using a couple of colors of Catherine Pooler Ink .  I just got my first set of inks from Catherine Pooler last month, and so far, I love them!

 The ink pads that I’m using are Grass Skirt and Rockin’ Red from the Party Collection Foundation Minis set.  Yes, these are the mini size.  They are 1” x 2”, and twice the size of many of my other mini inks.

I placed the tulips stamp on my stamp block press from Fiskars, inked it up, and stamped the flowers on a panel that I had cut from some heavyweight white cardstock from Michaels.

Of course, after stamping it out, I noticed that the stems that were a little higher up, and showing from behind the flowers were stamped in red, instead of green.  And part of the image wasn’t stamped at all.

Totally fixable.

I stamped the image again on a full coverage post-it note, and cut out the flowers. This stuff is great for masking!

Once the masks were in place, I re-stamped the image with Grass Skirt.  Much better.  But then I decided that I didn’t like the red and green look of the upper stem. 

To fix that, I grabbed some of my Spectrum Noir Markers (that live on my desk). 

I’ve sped up the coloring a bit, so it doesn’t take forever.  I’ll turn up the music for you to listen too in the meantime.

The markers that I used for the stems and leaves are AG1, AG2, AG3, and AG5.

Next I’m moving on to some pinks for the tulips.

The markers that I used for the tulips are BP1, BP2 and BP3.

Now that the coloring is complete, it’s time for a sentiment. I chose “bloom where you are planted” from this stamp set. I think it makes for a great encouragement card. 

Next I’m trying out another new-to-me craftroom staple… the Hero Arts NESTING RECTANGLE INFINITY DIES

Before cutting them apart, I had run them through my die cutter with some red card stock, creating a bunch of 1/8th in frames.

I’d seen this done on other videos, loved the look, but had never tried it.  This die set is perfect for this!

I picked one of the frames, I think it had used the 2nd and 3rd largest dies, and used it to frame my bouquet and sentiment. 

Then I grabbed my Art Glitter Glue and adhered the frame to the panel.

With this all complete, I added it to an A2 size card base that I created from the same heavyweight cardstock from Michaels, and the card is finished.
