White Embossed Flowers on Black

The technique I used on this card is sometimes called Black Magic and it certainly is magical. Using the Flowing Flowers stamp set, the sentiment and flowers were stamped onto black cardstock using VersaMark ink then white embossing powder was applied and heat set. Stampin’ Blends markers were then used to color in the flowers. This technique creates a striking look!

The card also highlights two of our newest 2022-2024 In Colors – Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet! I had a lot of fun creating this card…who doesn’t love coloring and the Stampin’ Blends work perfectly on the embossed images, including blending colors. A double metallic bow and some Rhinestone basic jewels finish off the card.

I hope you give this technique a try and have fun with it! Have a wonderful day and stay crafty!

Cup of Tea Friendship Card / Sun Bathing Beauties

Cup of tea friendship card

Today’s card features products from the new Tea Boutique Suite Collection. This is the happiest stamp set ever – very uplifting!

I started off with a card base in Orchid Oasis (one of the new gorgeous In Colors) then adhered an embossed white panel to the card front. I then stamped and die cut several images using the Teacup Dies. These images were arranged on a square from the Tea Boutique 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I looped a piece of Orchid Oasis Metallic Woven Ribbon to the card front, then adhered the square over top of the ribbon. A sentiment label was added below the square and I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front. A little stamping on the inside card panel and the envelope completes the card.

Sun Bathing beauties

Maezie and Mackenzie fresh from their baths are drying in the sun – looking all squinty-eyed. They are incredibly white and soft after their baths, but they don’t stay clean for long! Squirrel and rabbit chasing takes its toll!
