Technique Tuesday Royal Jasmine Greenhouse Society Cards

Hello, hi! I’m back again today with a couple more cards from the November Greenhouse Society release called Royal Jasmine. You might remember another card I shared from this release over here.

You might also remember me telling you that Royal Jasmine is a white flower. And white flowers are hard to paint. So for my first card today, I took the liberty of painting a flower that is more the colors of Plumeria, or Frangipani.

I did some partial die cutting on this card too! After stamping onto watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink, I used Arteza Real Brush pens to color in the leaves and petals, and a wet brush to blend the colors. Then I lined up the matching die, and ran it through my die cutting machine with the left hand side of the image hanging out of the die cutting sandwich so that it didn’t cut. Then I used an Xacto knife to trim away the remaining pieces of cardstock.

I used the largest of my rectangle stitched dies to add the stitch lines to the left side of the watercolor paper. I layered the watercolored piece over top a piece of blush colored cardstock with a sentiment stamped and gold heat embossed, and along side a coordinating piece of patterned paper, added some gold Nuvo drops and considered this card to be complete!

Card #2 today is another stab at painting a white flower. This time, I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder, so that you can’t see the outlines until there is color painted behind the image. I used a blue-green tint to add shadows to the petals and to reflect the colors in the background.

After painting the image, I cropped it with a stitched rectangle die and popped it up with some fun foam, then matted it with a soft olive-green cardstock.

I stamped one of the sentiments in the Royal Jasmine stamp set onto a strip of vellum paper, and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. Then I wrapped the strip around the front of the painted panel and adhered it all to an aqua colored card panel. The addition of a few rhinestone gems completes this card.
