Stampendous Dahlia Collage

Wanna know what makes this card artist’s heart go pitter-patter?!  New stamps from Stampendous!!  I just received a big fat package filled with wonderful new goodies and this baby was the first one I inked up!  It’s called Dahlia Collage and it’s HUGE!!  You may recall my obsession with their gorgeous Pointsettia Collage background stamp and can just imagine my excitement to play with this one!

In my package was a container of Rose Gold Embossing Enamel and I used it to emboss my image onto a panel of watercolor card stock.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!  I then began to color with Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose distress markers, blending the inks with a waterbrush.  I used Pumice Stone around the edges of the image and now wish I’d softened it a bit more.  The leaves were colored with Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters and I colored the center of the dahlia with Fossilized Amber and a touch of Gathered Twigs for depth.

I dug through my stash and found a strip of French Rose Glitterstock by Brutus Monroe which added a little more visual interest to my card.

Here’s a final peek at my beautiful, complicated-looking card which actually was REALLY easy and quick to make!!  I encourage you to search the Stampendous website to see what a vast selection of stamps and products they have to appeal to every crafter’s style!  As always, I very much appreciate your visit here and your comments!

  1. Love love love this card. So beautiful. Was hoping for a video of how you made it. I’ve read what you did, but like to watch the process too. Are you going to do a u-tube? Edna


  2. Hi Edna! I’m so glad you like this card! I never remember to make a video although I have made a few in the past. And I do have a very neglected youtube channel called CopyCatCards & Creations with ONE video!! 😀 I will plan to do another card with the Dahlia Collage stamp and video the process! I promise! 😀 Thanks for your comment and visit!
