A full list of all blogs is listed below as well!

For my first card I am using the new Precious Flower set. I love Alex’s flowers, they are so beautiful and so much fun to color. When I work with digital images I work in word to create my card base. For this card I wanted to create a slimline card. The precious flowers were perfect for layering to create my card. I layered 3 Precious Flowers and turned them in different directions to create my card panel. I then printed my card on Canson Mixed Media paper and couldn’t wait to color! I used my Tombow markers for this card. I used the following colors: pink (723, 803, 685, 636), Blue (515, 528, 555, 620), and leaves (173, 228, 379). Between layers I let the color dry, then I add my next layer. When my coloring was complete I cut down the panel to create a slime line card. I then added splatters in white and a bright yellow. Once dry I adhered the white panel on a piece of black card stock, then glued this onto a slim line card base. I set this aside. I chose 2 sentiments from The Gray Muse – Favorite Card maker sentiment set. I heat embossed these on black card stock using white embossing powder. I used foam tape and added these to my card. I am loving the slim line cards and Alex’s flowers are just the perfect stamp for these cards!

For card 2, I combined 2 sets in Alex’s May release: Almond Blossoms and Kokeshi Doll Mitsuki. I was so excited to work with these dolls. They are all so beautiful and Alex has several Kokeshi dolls in her new release to choose from! I printed these images on Neenah 80lb card stock as I was going to color these in using alcohol markers. On the almond blossoms I used shades of light gray to color each flower. I also added a gold pen to the stamens of each flower. I was so excited to color in Mitsuki – she is just beautiful! Once my coloring was complete I used my Brother Scan and cut to “fussy cut” each image. I trimmed a black panel of card stock to add to my slim line base. I added gold splatters to the black card base. Once dry I adhered all the beautiful stamps to create my slime line. I chose a sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh – Encouraging Greetings and heat embossed this in gold. This sweet doll, just makes me smile! Be sure to check out all the Kokeshi dolls in Alex’s release!

For card 3, I am using the Aloe Close Up card panel. I printed my Aloe panel on Canson Mixed Media Card stock and used my Peerless Water Colors to color this beautiful aloe plant! I used many shades of colors until I achieved the depth of color I was looking for. I let each layer dry between colors. I added a deep navy blue onto the nooks and crannies for added dimension. I adhered my panel to a black card base. To complete my card I heat embossed a sentiment from Hero Arts on black card stock using white embossing powder, I adhered this with foam tape. I added a few clear drops to resemble water droplets. I love this aloe plant stamped image!
