Pin the image below, and then take a walk through my garden of Dahlia cards! 0416CardPin The entire collection of ten cards was created with the Dahlia Unmounted Stamps and papers. 0416DahliaUMs Let's take a closer look, and I'll share a few tips along the way! DAHLIA JUMBO UM CARD#1 IMG_5715 copy Stamp the greeting first, surround it with dahlia and butterfly images, and color them with coordinating colored pencils. IMG_5716 copy CARD #2 IMG_5710a copy Stamp the dahlia/butterfly image onto a 4x5.25" White card panel with India Black ink. Create a rectangular mask with Post-It notes and sponge ink into the opening with a CS Ink Applicator. IMG_5705 copy Peel away the mask to reveal a colorful frame. IMG_5706 copy CARD #3 IMG_5736 copy Have a blast creating splatter images with this stamp. (And, without the splattery mess!) IMG_5556 copy CARD #4 IMG_5708 copy Stamp images and a sentiment onto a 4.75x6.75" Black panel with our crisp White Pigment ink. Be sure to heat set to prevent smearing. Sew felt buttons onto the panel with twine. IMG_5709 copy ART NOUVEAU UM CARD #5 IMG_5698 copy Test the effectiveness of colored pencils on the plain side of a Pink panel.
