Best Wishes - Happy New Year - Creative Scrapbooker

Hi Friends

Welcome to  my last post for 2017.  It just so happens that my last post for the year ends up on New Years Eve with Creative Scrapbooker, and today I am sharing with you a card using some fabulous stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.

I incorporated paper from the Blazing Poppy paper collection to create this card and used inks from Ranger and Color box.

Here is a peek at my card I put together for you today: I wanted my sunflowers to look festive so i colored my flowers using Rose coral chalk ink from Color Box and used Aged Mahogany on the tips

The card base size is a 8.5 x 11 piece of card folded in half i cut two papers from the collection for the base and i distress them, i searched for a A2 panel that i felt would coordinate and i matted that with white card from Creative Scrapbooker. . 

I used the Botanic Window die in a coordinting paper, and used Rajni Chawlas Crystal Clear on the edges to add some extra glitter. I use Glue Gloss to apply my glitter its pretty portable and a quick dry too. 

Now lets get started on the flowers and leaves, stamp the classic sunflower out on the Creative Scrapbooker cardstock using coffee archival ink; color centers with Ranger Ink Expresso; and then use Rose Coral chalk ink on petals and final step is to highlight them with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.

in total i used 13 flowers, once i was done coloring them, i pierced the center to make room for the stamens, then i sued the 3D Flower Basics Mold; the sizes are not perfect for this flower, but it still lends to some fabulous texture, i had to run this through a few times to get all my flowers completed.

put a few together off setting the petals and add your stamens

i then used my glue gloss and added some crystal clear glitter

it sure gives a nice detail and finished look to the flower.

Color your leaves using peeled paint distress ink from Ranger, molding using your molding mat and stylus

Look for a Best wishes sentiment in the paper collection, and assemble your card.

i think these are some of my favorite flowers this year!

Here is my finished card, 

From all of us here at Creative Scrapbooker, we wish you and your families 
a safe and healthy New Year!
