Video Friday | Feathers and Florals with Kelly

It’s Kelly Latevola here and I’m back with a fun floral arrangement that uses a ton of products from Stephanie Low’s Cool Vibes Designer Series. I love so many of the elements in this series it was hard to choose which to use!

I started by stamping out all my images in Copic safe ink then I dove right into the coloring. I went with a golden yellow and then added purple since they are complimentary colors. I love purple with teal and bright green so those were easy additions to round out my color palette.

Once the coloring was finished I put the coordinating dies in place and ran them though my Platinum machine. I also die cut my Thanks sentiment out of black cardstock to tie in all the black outline stamping.

I set my images aside to create my background. I used several distress ink colors to create a gradient from the top left fading off to the bottom right. I did my signature water and perfect pearls splattered in the background to add interest.

I arranged my flowers and feathers and began adhering them to my background using both flat and dimensional adhesive. A few clear droplets completed the card . . . or so I thought.

Like I said in the video there definitely wasn’t anything “wrong” with the first card. It just felt a bit disjointed to me. Which version is your favorite?

  1. Kelly, I love both cards, but I have to say I like the 2nd version without the white borders better. I am really a fan of the white borders most of the time, especially on more whimsical cards. But when I saw the two cards side by side I was immediately taken in the the last version. Part of the reason I think it appealed to me was that the background was more blue, more vibrant, The first card just seemed too white for me. Anyway, you probably didn’t want to hear my life story, lol, but I love your videos and both of these cards.

  2. The cards were beautiful but I agree with you on removing the white outline around the pieces. Looked more like it fit together without. Thanks for sharing all your tips.

  3. Kelly,
    Beautiful cards! I understand why you created the card a second time, and agree there is nothing wrong with the first one. I would be hard pressed to choose one over the other because I love your coloring and style regardless. Equally, I LOVE your videos.
