Suite Showcase no.11 - Inked Botanicals

It's all about Inked Botanicals in the first Suite Showcase of June.
June! Can you believe it?! But how nice it is, to have some nice weather.

Welcome to the first Suite Showcase of June where we're focusing on the Inked Botanicals Suite. This is a beautiful suite and I've so enjoyed having a play with it, although I must admit, I'm not a fan of the punches so I didn't purchase them. But the suite is still just as gorgeous without them.

The colours in the suite are Lost Lagoon, Petal Pink, Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral. So for my cards, I've stuck to 3 of the colours:

For my first card, I thought I'd attempt to keep things simple, so on a piece of Basic White, I stamped the tall flowers in Lost Lagoon, the leaves in Calypso Coral and the individual flower in Crushed Curry. I stamped the sentiment in Lost Lagoon also.

I mounted this on dimensionals onto a sheet of the designer series paper from the suite. And this was then adhered to a standard size Lost Lagoon card base. 

To finish the card off, I added a bow using the new Lost Lagoon ribbon and Lost Lagoon gems from the Tinsel Gems embellishments.

For my next card, I decided to step things up. I cut a piece of the DSP to measure 10.1cm x 14.5cm, before I adhered this to the Crushed Curry card base, I stamped on a piece of Basic White measuring 5cm x 14.5cm. 

I stamped the tall flowers in Calypso Coral, the leaves in Lost Lagoon, and the flower buds in Crushed Curry. Then before I stuck this to the DSP, I embossed it using the brand new Exposed Brick 3d embossing folder. Once I glued this layer to the DSP, I wrapped a piece of Lost Lagoon ribbon around it and added a bow. 

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Basic White in Calypso Coral. Once cut to size, I tapped each side onto my Calypso Coral ink pad, to give it a bit of an edge. 

This was then adhered using dimensionals. I finished the card off with some more of the Tinsel Gems.

For my third and final card today, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock to 13.1cm by 9cm. I ink blended Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Lost Lagoon. Once I'd done this, I then used one of the masks from the new Foursquare Decorative Masks, and blended lightly in Lost Lagoon over the ink blending.

Once this was done, I stamped the tall flowers in Memento Black.  I wrapped some black and white gingham ribbon towards the bottom. Stamping the sentiment in Lost Lagoon on Basic White, I punched this out using the smaller of the Double Oval Punch. And punched the large oval in Basic Black cardstock. Adding this over the ribbon, I added a bow in the same Lost Lagoon ribbon as before. I adhered this to a layer of Basic Black, measuring 13.4cm x 9.3cm, and then adhered this using dimensionals onto a Lost Lagoon standard size card base.

I love how the black really pops on this card. And of course, I finished the card as before with the Tinsel Gems.

I hope you like the cards. Head over to see what Alison has been making with the suite at The Inkspirational Crafter. Until next time, take care!
