August 2018 Card Kit – More Card Kit Inspiration with Kristina Werner!

Hi all! Kristina here with some more card kit inspiration! The flower images in the August 2018 Card Kit are gorgeous! I couldn’t resist creating a one-layer card using the Mandy’s Flower Shed stamp set.

I love the look of colored pencil on a dark surface, so I used some Slate cardstock as my card base. I wanted just the flowers (the tops of the jar image and flower pot image), so I masked off the bottom and sides of the card and stamped the tops of those images in VersaMark Ink. I applied some white embossing powder and then heat set it. I also stamped and embossed the “Thank You” from the stamp set.

Before removing the masking, I ink blended some white pigment ink around the area.

Then I colored the flowers and leaves with Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. For the flowers, I first colored a light layer of white and then added colors on top. This makes the colors more vibrant.

I hope you enjoy today’s card! You can pick up the August 2018 Card Kit here, or you can subscribe to receive this kit and future kits.

  1. I love the way your card came out. What a wonderful way to change up the stamps and create something different! Beautiful!!!

  2. What a great tip on adding a little bit of white pencil before coloring. I’m attempting to get more comfortable with my colored pencils so this will be great to try!

  3. Kristina is such a great artist and her ideas are so good. What a gorgeous, dimensional card she made again with the awesome new SSS Kit. This card is a gorgeous sample from her awesome work.
    Thank you Kristina!
