All White Falling Flowers Celebration Card JAI456

by Joanne James14. May 2019 16:45

Today I'm sharing a card for the current challenge over at Just Add Ink where they have a photo for inspiration this week:

Hmmm - a virtually all-white floral card! I've created with all-white before and it can be fun although a devil to photograph. I'm not sure today's pictures do it justice, so you're just going to have to take my word for it that in real life this is SO pretty! I pulled out some of my retiring products for a last run around the block for my card - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Falling Flowers - I wanted to use a single stamp set for today's card and I did pretty much manage that (except for my sentiment which comes from 'Thoughtful Banners'). I decided to use the retiring 'Falling Flowers' set as this is a set that exclusively features florals. I also like the fact that the co-ordinating May Flowers Framelits (also retiring) includes both some dies that cut out the stamped images and additional stand-alone dies, including the large dahlia-like one that I used in combination with my stamped images. 

Ways With White - When working with white alone, it's important to create interest and detail with shape, texture and layers so that it doesn't all look the same. I stamped the large vertical image in Versamark onto my base panel first and heat embossed it with some (retired) Irredescent Ice sparkly embossing powder, for some subtle background texture and detail. I then layered a combination of images stamped on both white and vellum and heat embossed in white, along with the large diecut dahlia and arranged them around my sentiment. I also brushed my main stamped flower liberally with clear Wink of Stella before adding some small pearls to the centre to finish for added sparkle and shine.

A Subtle Hint of Green - I added the tiniest hint of pale green to my stamped flower with a light Soft Sea Foam Blends marker and then worked it with the colour lifter to add just enough colour to highlight the embossed detail of the petals. I also used the green to stamp my sentiment.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

One last reminder before I go: the limited edition So Shelli Paper Pumpkin Kit goes on sale tonight at 11pm, so be ready to order yours. If you missed the announcement, you can read all about it here.

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

What a lovely white on white creation! You've certainly got all the various textures working well. The embossed vellum and tiny pearls are knock out additions!
