'Flower Shoppe' September 2021 Release Instagram hop and prizes to be won!

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a good week. And, we are here to make it more better - with Instagram hop and prizes to be won celebrating our latest release ‘Flower Shoppe’ for September 2021 :-)


If you don’t follow me on Instagram, please do so here. I would love to welcome you in our little tribe. We do share lots more inspiration (and entertainment) over there, than we do here on the blog alone. It’s a fun place to be and yes, every month we have giveaways too :)


I am loving the July 2021 Small Die of the Month from Spellbinders and I used it again this time to create one more shaped mini slimline card :) {and I have planned one more card for this release using the same die. I think I might have to put this die away so I can pay attention to other dies before they get jealous...}





Key Ingredients:

  1. You Are Beautiful stamp set (on VaradaSharma.com | on Etsy.com)

  2. Spellbinders Small Die of the Month - July 2021

  3. Gansai Tambi watercolors

  4. Derwent Inktense pencils

Steps:

  1. Using PowerPoint plan, size and print image on Canson watercolor paper.

  2. Cut it out. I used my Brother Scan and Cut machine but fussy cutting works equally well.

  3. Die cut a black panel using the largest two dies from Spellbinders July 2021 SDOM.

  4. Arrange the fussy cut image on this panel and die cut it so that it gets the dotted outline exactly where you need it.

  5. Color with Gansai Tambi watercolor and add shading with Derwent Inktense pencils. I also added highlights with a gold paint pen.

  6. Adhere the image on the top black panel. Color and tuck the leftover pieces of leaves around this image.

  7. Create shaped cardbase with just the outer die from same die set with black cardstock.

  8. Attach the top most panel and embellish with gold gems.

I left sentiment out of this. I plan to create several stripes of sentiments some day and keep them handy to use as needed. But for right now this project will be sentiment free.





Supplies List:


For your convenience, I am sharing links to the supplies I’ve used for these cards – click on the picture or link to go directly to the product. Wherever available, I have used affiliate links, which means when you make a purchase, I receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you) which I use to run this blog. I truly appreciate your support!





Hugs! ~Varada
