Layered Flowers Two Ways Part #2 +Video

Happy Day! Earlier this week I shared a couple of cards that I had made with Whimsy’s new Mom’s Layered Flowers Clear Stamp set. For those cards, I had used dye inks paired up with some water-coloring. Today’s card features heat embossing and a whole lot more water-coloring using Zig’s Real Brush Clean Color Markers. I have videos for both techniques :)

I love how easy this was to color once I had embossed all the flowers with white embossing powder. It really helps to keep the ink where you want it and you don’t have to be too fussy about applying the ink….the embossed edge does a lot of the work for you! I really like the vibrancy of colors that you get with the Zig Markers!

I used the Misti to stamp everything out but you don’t need on to try out this technique, it just saves soooo much time and allows you to correct things if they don’t stamp well the first time :) I am notoriously bad about my sentiments. There is always a 50/50 chance I will muck it up by stamping it crooked or not crisply enough. The Misti solves this for me. I am not being sponsored by them, I just am really impressed by the product and I HIGHLY recommend getting one if you can :)

Happy Friday! Just wanted to let you know that this weekend Craftsy is having a big sale on kits and supplies. The sale is on until Sunday.

I personally take Quilt making classes from Craftsy and buy a lot of my fabric and supplies from them. They are fabulous. I shared what classes I have taken from Craftsy in this post HERE. I was able to learn to quilt by taking those classes. I am so grateful that this type of class exists! I can review any time I want and quilting just makes my soul happy :)

Craftsy also has classes on knitting, croceting, cake decorating and card-making. There is something for everyone!

Layered Flowers Two Ways Part #1 +Video

Happy Day! I have a couple of new cards to share with you that feature Whimsy’s new Mom’s Layered Flowers Clear Stamp set. It is so versatile and fun that I actually used it in two different ways to create some Mother’s Day cards. There are videos for each way and today I am sharing the first one!

I used dye inks and water-coloring to create these tone on tone cards. I love how fast and fun these were to make.


This first card was my “practice” card for before I filmed the video. It was the first time that I used my Misti so I needed to figure that out as well as to figure out the actual placement of all the flowers. It worked out so well that I actually can share the “practice” card with you!

This next card is the one I created in the video. I switched up the color palette but everything else is exactly the same. I can certainly see creating a set of these cards in all the colors of the rainbow. Don’t worry…you don’t need a Misti tool to create this card, it just makes it loads faster!
