Colourful Cosmos Card

Hello Everyone
Today we are sharing with you our second sample using the Comos Flower Clear Polymer Stamps. When we first started shading the flowers they started off a more pale, pastel colours but once we layered the promarkers and coloured pencils they ended up much bright and bolder.
Below we will give a list of materials we used & how to guide to create this eye catching Birthday card.

What you’ll need;
* Twinkle Lane Designs – Cosmos Flower Clear Stamp Set
*Alcohol Markers and Coloured Pencils
* 7×7 Card Black
* White Card
* Black Card
* Adhesive Gems
* Green Card
* Glitter (Gold & Silver)
* Black Ink Pad
* Square Nesting Die & Lacy Die (we’ve used a Sue Wilson Die)
* Foam Pads & Double Sided Tape
* Scrap Paper

Step 1: With the square nesting dies – cut the black card 7×7″ & then take the next size nesting square down & cut this one in white card. You will then need to stamp the smaller cosmos twice onto the scrap piece of paper to create a mask. Cut around the edge – you will need this once you start stamping around the edge of the white square card.

Step 2: Start stamping with the smaller cosmos in one of the corner. Mask this one & then continue stamping around the whole edge of the white card. When you get to the final cosmos – you will need to mask off the two cosmos flower on either side.

Step 3: Shade in all the cosmos flower in a colour palette of your choice – we’ve choosen five bright shades. Using promarkers and coloured pencils to shade each one. Once they are all shaded – use a glue pen around the outside edge & sprinkle silver glitter over the glue & tap off excess.

Step 4: On your spare bit of white card stamp our some individual cosmos flowers – shade those & cut round the outside edge. You can add a little gold glitter to the centers on each flower.

Step 5: I’ve used a Sue Wilson die & cut it in a spare piece of black card. Then with the same die set cut out a center piece & stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment in the middle. Laying these piece up with foam pads & stuck into the center of the stamp cosmos background.

Step 6: Once all your layers have been glued to the card blank – finish the card off with the individual cosmos flowers you stamped earlier & then some adhesive gems in the corners.
