I am here today with the conclusion of my Stampin’ Blends ® Week. On Monday I shared with you a Blends Coloring Video, Wednesday we took a look at a quick and easy mid week card, and today we are fussy cutting out some beautiful florals.
If these florals look familier it is because I posted them as close ups for promoting the Stampin’ Blends® back in the fall. This stamp set is named “Remarkable You”. I would recommend this set for learning how to use the Stampin’ Blends® because of the large space within the flowers.
Here you can see what the colored images were for my older post. I decided to fussy cut two of them for this project. As you can see by the Orange flower above that the edges show some “white space”. Because of this I use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write® marker around the edges. I like to do this with any fussy cutting. It just gives the images look more finished.
Fussy cutting them this gives them a little more stability as well. For the leaves above you can see where I left quite a bit of “white” along the edge. I just covered it when I went around the edges with my Basic Black Stampin’ Right Marker.
Here you can see them all finished. Don’t they look great?
Here you can see the close up of the finished project. I positioned them with leaves behind and in front of the flower. The stems all merge nicely too so you can’t really tell that they have been glued together. TIP: If you use our Tombow Liquid Adhesive if some glue shows around the delicate leaves you can use an adhesive eraser to fix it. It is the BEST $3-$5 you will ever spend.
One last look…. This card took a little longer to complete but I think it was well worth it!
Thank you for sticking with me all week long while I shared with you my love of Stampin’ Up!®’s new Blends Alcohol Markers. They are available now and will also be featured in the new 2018-2019 catalog which will release June 1st 2018.
Keep Stampin’ ®
