See how rainbow ink blending die cut flowers can add so much beautiful color to a card with so little effort!

In a previous post, Sammi shared her vision for creating some beautiful butterflies using this same technique. Today she is back with another stunner, showing how rainbow ink blending die cut flowers can add that same beautiful colorful look with very little time and effort. Sammi is really showing off how our Color Fuse Ink is so perfectly suited to beautiful blending and we love her color choices.

Let’s dive in and learn directly from Sammi how she made this.

I love this floral and I wanted to do something a little rainbowish so this was the perfect stamp set to ink blend with.

I first stamped the images with a slow drying black ink and heat embossed them with a clear embossing powder so I could ink blend them and still have sharp black image. I then fussy cut the images out.

Using shades of Color Fuse Ink from sets #1, 2 and 5, I blended the colors over the flowers. On the individual elements – the two single flowers and the butterfly, I created a semi-ombre from one side of the die cut to the other. For the corner piece, I blended all the pinks at one end gradually moving to the yellows at the other.

Next I cut out the Deckle Frame Die and ink blended the frame with Color Fuse inks from set #3.

To create that pretty textural background, I cut a card sized panel of white card stock with the Organic #1 Cover Die and adhered it to another white card panel. Then I added the deckle edged die cut frame over the top with some foam tape adhesive. I like the Organic #1 Cover die for this card because it reminds me of leaves which is perfect for a floral card!

Using liquid glue, I added the floral images on opposite corners of the frame for balance. I stamped the sentiment from the BFF Phrase set #3 and cut it down to a strip. I tucked one side of the strip under the left side of the frame and popped the rest of the strip with foam tape leaving the right side of the strip overlapping the other side of the frame. After adding the butterfly image with foam tape, I added some pink embellishments from my stash and adhered the whole thing to a white card base.
