Botanical Cards for Valentine’s & Spring Tutorials with Umbrella Crafts

I’m starting to feel less and less christmas-y and that means you’ll start seeing a lot of floral inspiration on the blog. I thought I’d share with you my latest 2 cards made for my social media Fun Friday features… I experimented with a new dye ink and stretched it to the most not knowing how much it’s versatility would surprise me in the end. I’m talking about Umbrella Crafts Premium Dye Inks. I was able to stamp, blend, watercolor and even heat emboss (yes, that’s right, emboss) with these inks.

For my first card I created a beautifully blended ombre background and managed to give it a watercolor feel. I also created ombre flowers. Find the tutorial here.

On my second card I used layered stamping with one of Umbrella Crafts Trio Premium Dye Ink Sets and to my own surprise I also heat embossed the stamped flowers in gold using black dye ink (my new favorite)! Find the tutorial here.

I think both these cards would work for friendship Valentine cards and of course also for Spring. The best part is you can try any of these ideas and personalize them!

I invite you to check out all the products I used for today’s products including tools that you can find on the supply list below! They are exclusively available at Scrapbook.com. For more inspiration using Umbrella Crafts products check them out on Instagram and Facebook.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
