The wait is over! The MFT Stamps Release is live right now! Which means you can head to the MFT Stamps online store and purchase the stamps, dies, stencils, and more that we have been sharing for the last five days! I will wait patiently here while you shop. Or if you are still making up your mind, let me convince you of a few more items you might "need."
Tonight I am featuring Tropical Flowers and Die-namics Tropical Flowers. These coordinating sets of products create beautiful layered flowers and leaves.
To start with, I cut vellum with Die-namics Tropical Flowers. Then I stamped the vellum with the outline of the large flower image and heat embossed it in gold. On the back of the vellum, I colored with a Copic marker to add some pink. Then I repeated the process for the various leaves, but used Sweet Tooth card stock instead of vellum. These leaves are perfect for mixing and matching. It makes me feel like I am in Hawaii again, which is good because its cold out. :D
The Tropical Flowers images were adhered to a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock that was cut with Die-namics Pierced Rectangle STAX. On it, I stamped the small splatter images from Distressed Patterns using Razzle Berry ink. The sentiment is from Amazing and it fit perfectly along the bottom edge. Then I used a few gold sequins to fill in the middle of the flower.
For this card, I used a fun technique to add depth to the solid flower image from Tropical Flowers. But first, I have to share this...
This set of dies is open! Yes, that's right, Die-namics Tropical Flowers is open! No middle! So, to make it easier to line up, I stamped my flower image first, THEN placed by die over the top, secured it with low-tack tape and die cut it! Perfect results!
Once I also stamped the outline image, I used color pencil to add depth. I started by using a shade of orange. Then I added a deeper orange color towards the flower center. Finally, I used a red for the deepest shadows. I wanted this flower to look like a hibiscus.
On the background I stamped Linen Background with Natural ink. I proceeded to stamp the leaves in various shades of green to create a place for my very cool flower to rest on my card. For more color, I stamped the smallest splatter images from Distressed Patterns in Daffodil. The sentiment is once again from Amazing, because, well, its amazing!
