You Are Simply Wonderful ~ Bridesmaids Cards

Hello and welcome back to my little blog.
Guess what?
Today I marry my best friend and soul mate - Declan.
Don't worry - I am not blogging on my wedding day, I have pre-scheduled this post for you all.
 
I made these cards to thank my gorgeous bridesmaids to go along with their gift which I hope they will love - some Pandora jewellery.
 
I wanted to share these with you today because I have to admit that I am slightly addicted to Pigment Sprinkles and the gorgeous Bloom & Grow stamp set.

I was also inspired to make really blue and green cards with a touch of gold as they are my wedding colours. Well sort of...I have gone with an Emerald and Green wedding theme.
 
I hope you enjoy this little share...
 
 
Here are the steps I have used to create these cards:
 
Step 1: I have cut a standard sized card base that is top folding.
Step 2: I then cut a card layer from Basic Black 1/8'' smaller than the card base.
Step 3: Cut a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour paper to 1/8'' smaller than your Basic Black layer.
Step 4: Cut a piece of Basic Black to 4'' by 2''.
Step 5: Cut a piece a Gold Glimmer to 4'' by 2 1/4''.
Step 6: Using an Aqua Painter wet the whole piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour paper and then lay down some Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green Pigment Sprinkles over the top. Then using a Stampin' Spritzer, spray water on the top until the colours all blend together. Set aside to dry.
Step 7: Stamp out some flowers from the Bloom & Grow stamp set on some scrap thick Whisper White cardstock using Memento Black ink. Using Pretty Peacock light and dark Stampin' Blends, Bermuda Bay dark Stampin' Blends, Pineapple Punch dark Stampin' Blend and Granny Apple Green light and dark Stampin' Blends, colour all the flowers and leaves of two sets of flowers.
Step 8: Pour out some of the Golden Glitz Delicata ink refill on an acrylic stamping block and using a semi dry Aqua painter, paint this carefully onto the 'berries' of your flower. Please note: you will need to set this aside for some time to dry.
Step 9: Stamp the sentiment "You are Simply Wonderful" in versamark on  your piece of black and heat emboss in white. Adhere this with glue dots to your piece of Gold Glimmer.
Step 10: Using this stamped piece as a guide, place the scalloped edge die from the coordinating dies on the dried Pigment Sprinkles piece to create the scalloped 'openings' and use washi tape to hold in place while you run this through the die cut machine.
Step 11. Adhere your piece of black/gold down between the scalloped openings with Stampin' Dimensionals. Adhere this now to your layer of Basic Black (leaving no adhesive around where the scalloped opening is, to allow the flowers to slip in here) and then adhere that layer to the white card base.
Step 12: Once your flowers are completely dry (a heat gun can help and I left mine overnight), use a combination of Glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere them coming out from underneath the scalloped opening.
Step 13: I have tied a double strand Linen Thread bow and adhered this to the bottom left of my card on the black panel and then accented with some Gold Glitter enamel dots.
Step 14: To finish off I added some spritzes of Clear Wink of Stella.

 
Here you can see a close up of the finished card and the detail and beautiful colours.

 
I have also decorated the inside of my card, adding a sentiment and also another lot of flowers which I have coloured with blends.
