Lia Stampz: May Flowers Set Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to Lia Stampz Flowers blog hop!


If you have just chanced upon this post then it's your lucky day!
We have a prize for you on each stop on the hop so don't forget to leave comments!
Here is the list:





Lia Stampz is releasing a new set named "Flowers" (pictured above with link to the shop). We have FIVE flowers in this set and ELEVEN digis in all and oh-my-god they are oh-so-fun to work with! 
They are so versatile and I am going to share with you three VERY different (from each other) projects today.


First up I used Poppies on my one layer card.


I watercolored the poppies using distress inks and added wink of Stella for the shimmer. Sentiment is by SSS, I stamped it on vellum and then heat embossed it.



Can you see the sparkly goodness?!!

Next up is a heat embossed image card using Peonies.



Here I printed the image on vellum and heat embossed it. Printer ink on vellum stays wet for a while so I used that "flaw" (not so much for me) to heat emboss the image. 
Maybe you can try this too and if you do try please link me up, I would love to see your work! 
I added a brad to the vellum piece and some twine to give it a look of a tag. Placed a colour-wash background behind the image and layered it with champagne glitter mat. I embossed and lightly ink distressed the base to add a bit more texture.

Last but not the least, a hybrid watercoloring card again using Peonies.


Here I manipulated the image on Photoshop. Played around with it till I was satisfied with the look.
The only real watercolor element to this card are the splotches and splatter I added later on (surrounding the image). I added a bit of heat embossed vellum to balance the glittery sentiment die by Spellbinders, Brad is from an MME brad pack.

If you are still here with me then kudos to you! Give yourself a pat on your back! :) 

Do not forget to leave a comment and also PLEASE answer one question,

OMG... These are AMAZING!!! You yourself are a glitter goddess!! AMAZING watercoloring... The touch of glitter is PERFECT!!! Love the gold embossing on the second card, both on the image and the edges of the vellum and the glitter frame. If you wouldn't had said anything, I would have though the entire third card was watercolored!!! AMAZING!!! I LOVE (the) Poppies

ST, your gold embossed peony card is STUNNING! I definitely need to try this! Exactly how did you do this? What kind of printer? If it was an inkjet printer, in what color did you print it?

I would love to see a detailed tutorial on how you did this.

My favorite Sufi in the set was the poppies until I saw your peonies!! Now I can't decide!
