MFT Stamps | Flowers In Bloom Card Kit – Release Day

June 25, 2019

The Flowers In Bloom Card Kit from My Favorite Things is finally now available! I have been sharing a few different ways to utilize the kit over the past few days. I showed how you can use the included Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders to watercolor the flowers, and yesterday that you can use whatever coloring medium you prefer to get a totally different look!

Today, I wanted to show you how you can use these gorgeous Color Burst Powders for your card backgrounds as well! It’s super easy to do and the outcome looks so amazing!

For all of my cards today, I used a large flat paint brush to apply my color to the backgrounds. The nice thing about these Color Burst Powders is that you can easily control the color intensity by adding more or less powder to your water. For my first card (shown above), I used the Coral Crush Color Burst Powder and started from the bottom of my panel with deep color and worked my way to the top using a more diluted wash of color. I used the included Ken Oliver Watercolor Paper for each of these panels.

I wanted to show you what it looked like to use the floral diecut images on top of these background panels as well. I used all three Color Burst Powders that are included to (Tropical Teal, Coral Crush, and Jellybean Green) to watercolor my flowers and then my Flowers In Bloom Die-namics to cut them out.

I cut about 3 layers of this diecut panel (shown above) from White Card Stock and glued them together to provide some dimension and a clean look when adding my flowers to my card.

Here is a second version of a similar card. I wanted the flower orientation on the other side and trimmed off the excess so that it was flat against the edge of the card.

For both of my backgrounds, I splattered them with diluted Opaque White Paint and Black Watercolor Paint once the Coral Crush Watercolor Background was dry. I heat embossed both sentiments with some Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.

For my next two cards, I used both the Tropical Teal and Jellybean Green Color Burst Powders for my backgrounds. These cards were super easy to create and only took about 5-10 minutes a piece. I was inspired by the extremely talented Natasha Valkovskaya for both of these style cards. If you are not familiar with her work, I highly recommend that you check her out. She makes the most amazing CAS cards that always make my jaw drop.

Once my background panels were dry, I diecut the Flowers In Bloom silhouette to mask the area where my flowers would be and then splattered each background lightly with some more diluted Opaque White Paint. Once dry, I then heat embossed both my image and my sentiment with Fine Detail Embossing Powder. I simply added a few clear drops for added interest and voila! Super easy and yet still elegant!

My second card in this style was very similar to the first except that I used Fine Detail Black Embossing Powder for a slightly different look.

I hope you enjoyed my cards today! I absolutely LOVE this kit and everything that comes with it! They will be available in limited quantities online at the MFT Boutique. Once these bundle deals sell out, they’re gone for good. However, you can always buy each item individually at regular retail price.
