Introducing Year of Flowers: Larkspurs

My second post today introduces the next set in the Year of Flowers series that you have all come to love so much! This month's addition features larkspurs, a beautifully detailed flower that is just a dream to work with. It also features sentiments that are interchangeable between all the sets as well as "month" stamps that can be combined to make a calendar.

The details.

  • Year of Flowers: Larkspurs will be available for purchase on July 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Year of Flowers: Larkspurs contains a total of 5 stamps (1 large flower and 4 sentiments)
  • The sentiments are interchangeable with the other stamps in the Year of Flowers series: Violets, Daffodils, Sweet Peas, Lily of the Valley and Roses.

I have some beautiful projects that I'm anxious to share with you today!

Thank You CArd

This first card is one of my favorites that I created with this set.  Plum Pudding & Kraft cardstock just make a stunning combination, don't you think?

Qtip

I started by stamping the large Larkspurs on my kraft card base using Black Noir ink.  I then used a q-tip with Plum Pudding ink to subtly shade each of the blooms.  Using a small circular motion is the way to go with this technique to get a nice soft effect.

Copics

I then added a few pops of color with Copic Markers.

Stamping sentiment

I edges the entire card front with Fresh Snow ink and then stamped "Thank You" from Big & Bold Wishes in the same ink.  The smaller portion of the sentiment was stamped in Black Noir under that.

Larkspurs closeup

I love how soft and gentle this coloring technique is.  It's easy to do and really helps you to achieve more looks with this stamp.

Sentiment closeup

By layering the sentiment over the flowers just slightly like this, you are able to help keep everything cohesive and easy to follow with the eyes.

Down

I am sure the same card could be recreated in other colors and have stunning results as well!

No One Like You card

This is a really quick and simple card that only takes a few minutes to make.

Sentiment closeup

It is important to heat emboss the sentiment first with White Filigree Embossing Powder.

Larkspurs closeup

And then stamp the larkspurs on top of that with Versamark.  If you do not complete these steps in order, you will take a chance on the embossing powder sticking to the larkspurs and ruining the nice clean effect you should be going for.

Down 

It would be easy to create entire sets of these for gifts, perhaps using a variety of sentiments from the other Year of Flowers sets as well.

Larkspurs Card

This soft pastel card uses the larkspurs in a bit of a different way than the other projects I have shown you thus far.

Stamped larkspur

It is always important to remember with large images like these that it is okay to use just a small portion of it.  Here, I just stamped the right-hand portion of the flowers onto this die-cut Spiral Notebook Page.

Copics

I used Copic markers to color in all the details.

Spring rain ink pad

After the coloring was completed, I swiped my Spring Rain ink pad around the perimeter of the notebook page.  It gives it a soft sky look.

Finished focal closeup

The focal point I created was layered on top of a Kraft card base, featuring two strips of Sweet Blush Grosgrain ribbon as borders underneath it.

Down

The background of the card is stamped with an image from Turning a New Leaf using Fresh Snow ink.  I also swiped the same ink pad around the edges of the kraft card cover to help keep everything soft and natural.

Youre the Friend Card

Next, I decided to challenge myself and create a card with these flowers that was more in the earth tones.

Stamping larkspurs

I stamped the larkspurs with Vintage Cream ink  onto Terracotta Tile cardstock.

Sentiment

The sentiment is stamped on a strip of Dark Chocolate cardstock and finished off with a Terracotta Tile button tied with our 1/8" Silk Ribbon.

Larkspurs

I swiped the Tea Dye Duo around the edge of the larkspur image before adhering it down to the Kraft card base.

Down

I can imagine this project in other colors too!

Blessings Card

This last card features standard Copic coloring techniques, one of my personal favorite things to do with all of the Year of Flowers sets.

Copics

To shake things up a bit, I used two different shade of orange for the flowers, Sumer Sunrise and Orange Zest.  The leaves are done in Ripe Avocado.

Larkspurs closeup

I love this two-tone effect and look forward to doing it again soon with blues and purples!

Bow closeup

I tied a bow using the backside of Orange Zest Satin Ribbon.  The bow adds dimension & detail to the bottom portion of the card.

Down
   

I hope you enjoyed my creative offerings today using this set.  All of these Year of Flowers sets are so easy to work with since the flowers are so large and allow you to fill a whole card front easily.  What do you think of this new addition to the series?  We would love to hear your thoughts!

    What a beautiful set! I love the detail of the flowers. As someone who is coloring-phobic, I appreciate the q-tip technique. I think I could handle coloring that way!

    I’m so impressed that you’ve managed to keep the flower images simple, yet each month has it’s own distinctive feel. Some months are well suited to paper piecing, others are more suited to detail coloring…and ALL make a variety of stunning cards. I’m learning so much about just the techniques of card layouts from seeing your YOF samples each month. (And I HAVE to get larkspur!)

    Well, Nichole, you’ve done it again! Your
    “No one like you” card is gorgeous…so
    simple and yet so elegant. And your “You
    are a blessing to me” is so beautifully
    done in two shades of orange. Never would
    have thought to do that myself. Thanks for
    the opportunity to win all of the Year of

I haven’t gotten into the copic markers and all of the coloring yet as I am not sure I would be good enough at it, but I am looking forward to giving a q-tip a try to do this beautiful technique that you have demonstrated with the larkspur stamp.

    Laura Boyd says:

    I love the flower sets and hope to have them all one day. I really like the versitality that you have shown in these cards, from simple elegance, to brightly colored in. In shows that you don’t have to get in a rut and only use the stamp one way.

    PurpleD says:

    To be honest, I didn’t think much of this stamp set at first. BUT…as usual, Nichole, you made it shine… Absolutely gorgeous.

  • 700

    Ahhh…. Somehow the airy feeling with the blooms and stems not clustered close together just feels so refreshing to me right now. I enjoy all the PTI background stamps, but sometimes having some blank spaces on the card is just the best impression possible. These flowers are delightful.

  • 701
    Steph W. says:

    I hadn’t even heard of a Larkspur before the guesses for this month’s flower set on the forum. I think it turned out beautiful and the sentiments are great too. I don’t have any of these sets yet (they are on my ever-growing list though!), but how would I love the opportunity to win them…. What an awesome prize package.

    I thought that I would never see,
    A flower as beautiful as…
    the dahlia,…
    then there was also the violet…,
    and the list will probably go on and on.
    So much for my rhyme this time,
    I’ll think of ways that I can make those stamps mine!

  • 717
    Ruby2Shoes says:

    SO pretty! I LOVE the softness of the shading with the q-stick. I must try that! I’m not normally into the more natural flower stamps, but you’ve made them look so contemporary I’m just going to have to give them a try now!!!

  • 720
    colleen says:

    Nichole you make such artistically beautiful cards from your colored flower images. Just breathtaking. I especially loved your plum pudding and kraft card and the blush larkspurs on kraft with the spring rain edges. Those spring rain edges totally change the look of the card – stunning! I don’t own any of PTI’s flower stamps, but I would sure love too! Thank you for continuing to provide such awesome inspiration.
