Video: Creating Floral Borders

by Janette Kausen February 25, 2019 22 Comments

Hello to you on this fine Monday! Janette here today to share a video on creating floral borders with the Beautiful Day Agapanthus clear stamp set on the new Hero Hues Pebble cardstock.

The floral elements colored very simply create drama when repeated along either side of the card. The video below shows exactly how I went about that. Join me!

If you have any trouble in the viewer above, please try watching HERE on YouTube.

Begin by stamping the upright bloom from Beautiful Day Agapanthus along each side of the A2 Hero Hues Pebble cardstock with a MISTI Precision Stamp Tool. Start with the image in the middle and allow it to slightly overhang the cardstock. Stamp with Copic friendly Intense Black ink. Then adjust the cardstock panel up or down, and tilt to nest in the next image without overlapping. Patience and a keen eye for detail will make for perfect placement. The MISTI makes all the difference! If you are still unsure, place acetate over the Pebble panel to test the image. Repeat to complete borders.

Copic color images in V25, V06, V17 and BV04. Very simple, one color blooms will do the trick! Then add dots of white Gelly Roll to the anthers of the stamens and the tiniest buds. White heat emboss sentiment on Hero Hues Plum cardstock and mount with foam tape. Apply panel to folded card base and add Nuvo Dream Drops in Cloud 9 for an iridescent pop of white. Place project in a safe place to dry overnight. 

Thank you for following along today. Have an amazing week and we'll see you soon!

xo,

Hi Janette! I have to tell you that I love this card! I frequently use a stamp and “run off” the edge or use a corner to get a different look. However something about this card just seems different and I love the result. Thank you for sharing!! Have a great day.

Wow I love this technique and the lovely card. Thanks for giving us "permission " to do simple Copic coloring. I am pretty intimidated by Copic markers!

I love the colors and the background paper really is an awesome look for the colors. I have to remember using rotary cutter it would be so much easier than trying to line up my sentiment. I love the added white. Very stunning card.

Stunning Janette, I love this stamp set from the first time I saw it. So glad you used it and showed how to use it an other way than I would do.
Thank you so much for this great inspiration.

Love the simplicity of this card. I’m not a great colorist when it comes to shading, so this straight forward technique suits me to a T! Thanks for the video and inspiration to get creative with my stamps for borders.
