Hello! I’m back with a second post on how you can use this month’s Flowers In Bloom Card Kit from My Favorite Things. Yesterday, I shared one method on how to use the gorgeous Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolor Powders that are included in this kit. Well, guess what? If watercoloring intimidates you, you can easily use another medium that you are comfortable with for a completely different look!
I decided to go with my “go-to” color medium and use some Copics on my images for my project today. Once again, I usually struggle with flower placement when creating a card with floral stamps. However, the fact that this is one stamp, with one layout, made this style card today very easy.
I simply went around my card panel in a clockwise rotation and stamped different sections of this stamp onto my card panel, leaving an area for the sentiment.
I used some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp my images onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb Card Stock. I LOVE this card stock. It absorbs the colors well without bleeding, allowing me to get full, rich color combos when desired.
For my card today, I used a variety of Pink, Red, Green, and Blue Green colors to achieve my look. I’ve mentioned before that I like to use a good number of colors for each blend. It actually just makes the blending transition a lot easier but is NOT necessary to achieve a similar look. I have listed the colors that I used below, but keep in mind that ~3 colors from each section would work just as well.
Copic Colors Used:
- Coral: R00, R01, R02, R08, R14
- Teal: BG0000, G14, BG11, BG13, BG18
- Browns: E41, E42, E43, E47
- Grays: 0, C0, C2, C3
Once finished, I added a few accents with a White Gel Pen and Black Ebony Nuvo Drops. I then stamped my sentiment in the lower right corner with black ink and placed this entire panel onto a piece of Coral Crush Card Stock, which is included in the kit.
This beautiful kit will be available tomorrow, June 25th, at 10AM EST. If you want one, get it fast because once the bundle deal sells out, they’re gone for good. However, you will still be able to acquire these pieces individually at regular price if you so desire.

Beautiful card! Amazing coloring! Love the gray outline … it really adds dimension to your single layer panel. I just didn’t quite understand what you meant by “I usually struggle with flower placement when creating a card with floral stamps.” Huh??? I don’t get it. Your flower placement (and layout in general) is always spot on! Always enjoy seeing your cards!
Thank you so much! I can usually see a layout in my head right off the bat when using most stamp sets, but when it comes to using flowers, it takes me quite a while (sometimes multiple tries) to figure out where to put everything. Should I mask or not etc etc. It just doesn’t come naturally to me, lol.
WOWZERS! Gorgeous creation! I love these Flowers in Bloom! Awesome coloring!
Thank you so much, Lagene! I love them too! They’re super easy to use and look gorgeous even without coloring them.
WOW! Love your Copic coloring. It gives such a different look than the watercolors. Love it!
Thank you so much, Julia! It’s really cool to see how different the same stamp set can look when coloring with different mediums. :0)
I would love to see the pattern of the first card in a wrapping paper. I’d buy it!
I’d do the same! Lol :0)
This is incredible! Your talent just flabbergastes me! Thanks for inspiring each and every time you post!
You are such a sweetheart, Nancy. Thank you!
Love how the flowers seem to be tumbling down the card! Beautiful colors throughout.
Thank you so much, Kathy!
Another beautiful card Rachel. Thank you for sharing.
