Mixed-media cards with Whimsical Papers

Hello crafty friends!

Emmy here with a new post to share. This week I decided to create a few mixed-media cards using the amazing Whimsical Papers from Susan K. Weckesser and a few of her stamps. 

I used the Susan K. Weckesser Whimsical Papers - Beautiful Daydreams, Bouquet, Live in Color tags, Live in Color and Color Burst, and Susan K. Weckesser and Unity Stamps "abc.123.washi" stamp set.   

To create my background I used white cardstock, Gelatos, distress ink and different masking templates. I applied a lot of different layers of pastels, ink, stamps and modelling paste, until I was satisfied with the result.

All the washi tape stamps are from the Susan K. Weckesser and Unity Stamps "abc.123.washi" stamp set.

For my abstract flowers I used Susan K. Weckesser Whimsical Papers Color Burst. I cut out four circles, inked and distressed their edges and adhered them to my background with 3d foam tape. Then I cut out the stems from the Live in Color tags pattern paper, stamped the alphabet washi tape on top of them and attached them to the flowers. 

To finish off my card I added white pearls and I doodled the frame around my design.

For my second card I used a light brown card base and a 13 x 13 cm piece of Susan K. Weckesser Whimsical Papers - Color Burst. I adhered it to the cardstock and doodles the frame around it. Then using a masking template and modelling paste, I added extra dimension to my card. 

To create the banner I used I used Susan K. Weckesser Whimsical Papers - Beautiful Daydreams, Bouquet, Live in Color and Color Burst.

As a final touch I added two colorful butterflies, which I embellished with white pearls.

I hope you enjoyed today's post!
