How to Make 2 BEAUTIFUL Line Art Floral Cards FAST!

Need a Quick Card or Two? Want it to be Bright and Cheery? But don’t have the time to colour…… Today I share 2 FAST fun floral cards using some fun products from Ellen Hutson!

I have been on a total watercolour fix lately but it’s been a while since I’ve done some ‘smooshing’ and what a fun way to add some adventure to some line art images! Yes, Line Art, I didn’t colour today, but it’s still colourful, what a fun, quick way to create some great cards and you could use any variety of images!

And I started with this bouquet from You Should Know and die cut a panel with the border from the Essential Rectangles Set.

This fab sentiment set called Nice of You and it has co-ordinating dies to cut a bunch at once!

My next bloom is the Mondo Pansy (built for watercolour lol) and this time the sentiment was from Totally Random Sayings Vol 1.

Check out my video here or you can Watch it in HD at YouTube.


Seriously, these were so fun and easy to make…. I think they would be great for a ‘gift card set’ idea too! Please tag me if you are inspired to try this idea. Thanks so much for your visit here today, looking forward to seeing you again real soon, Hugs

  1. I don’t have any Bristol Smooth but I think I need some. I am always wanting to do something that needs water on it and Neenah just doesn’t handle water very well. Thanks for sharing your technique. As always, I love your calm video style and I love your cards too!

    1. I like the Bristol because it is also good with watercolours like the brush markers, but you could use any watercolour paper you may have, though some of the rougher ones are more difficult to stamp on.

  2. So beautiful, Therese. I have never really considered smooshing, but WOW! You’ve made me reconsider. These are just gorgeous! 💜 Warm hugs from San Antonio, Texas.

  3. Definately bright and cheery! Love these cards.

    I made a card yesterday kinda similar kinda different! Cause I needed some colour quicklyish (if I exclude drying time 😉 ) As we are now in lockdown again, I think it will be more than 5 days, I hope to get some serious crafting on! Got to look at the postive.

  4. I enjoyed your video. I love this technique (never heard of using acetate before). I also have patterned paper with abstract colors and this would be great to use my outlined floral stamps! Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
