Just Believe-CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Inspiration

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

It is my turn for a little inspiration for the CAS-ual Friday's Stamps Blog. Since it is the summer time, I have a bit more time to play so I decided to do a little painting on my card.

I started out by cutting down a piece of watercolor paper into a 4" by 5 1/4" piece. I then used some pink paint to water color my pink stripes along the front.

I set that aside to dry and then started to work on my flowers. I stamped each flower from CAS-ual Fridays "Wallflower" stamp set in white pigment ink and used white embossing powder to heat emboss each of them. I then painted them in orange, purple and green. I had to dry these for quite a while before I die cut them with their matching dies. I had a little "uh oh" moment with one the flowers I colored in green but it was all okay!!

While the flowers were drying, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment in white onto vellum with CAS-ual Friday's "Dream then Do" stamp set.

All my pieces were set and the next step was to put the parts together!! I die cut a circle into the striped panel and adhered the stamped vellum sentiment under it. I then put a bunch of sequins that were the same color as the flowers under it and adhered another piece of vellum over the first to make a pocket. I then used foam adhesive to adhere the striped panel onto a white A2 card base.

I then started layering the die cut flowers around the sentiment circle. The tiny flowers I popped up with foam adhesive. I fussy cut the flowers I made in green to use as leaves.

To finish the card off, I adhered some clear gems in different sizes in the middle of the flowers, as well as some random sequins.
