Can you believe how beautiful this new Enchanting Vines Botanical 3D Embossing Folder is?!!! I absolutely love it! I paired it with the beautiful new Meadow Bush Layering Stencil Set and the Meadow Bush Die set. Stenciling these flowers with the inks from the Northern Shore Mini Ink cube set was SO fun! I kept the sentiment simple by using one from the Label Love stamp set.
I used the pinks and greens in the Spring Bouquet 6 Dye Ink Cube set to stamp the beautiful flower, bud, and leaves. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added some fun ink spatters to my card front along with a strip of paper from the A Love For Stripes Set A paper pack.
After I ran the Geometric Castle embossing folder through my machine, I used a blender brush to swipe on some gray ink to highlight all of the gorgeous details! Then I masked off the castle and stenciled on a rainbow of clouds!
I think the rainbow clouds suit this perfectly! I topped off the card by stamping the hot air balloon from the Magical Memories Outline Stamp Set in Versamark onto vellum. I added silver embossing powder and heat set it. Then I used the coordinating Magical Memories Die Set to cut it out. The sentiment is also in the stamp set and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Love the whimsical look of this card!
My final card features this adorable Tea For Two Outline Stamp Set. I used a portion of an embossed piece to create my "tablecloth"!
For the tablecloth, I inked up the recessed side of the Ornamental Feature 3D Embossing Folder with Rouge ink and ran it through my machine. I cut a 5-½" x 1-½" strip for my card and added a thin black card stock strip at the top. (I liked how the ink got a bit blotchy at the edges, do you?)
I stamped and white heat embossed the adorable teapot. I stamped the decorative flowers onto the pot with Jet Black ink. Then I used the Tea For Two Simple Coloring Stencil to color it in with Rouge and Blush ink. I also used a few Copic markers to add more shading on the pot: R24, R14, R32, R20. My sister loves tea, so of course, I had to use this sentiment! Shhh, don't tell her I'll send this card to her!
I hope you have found some inspiration here for this awesome new release! Thank you for stopping by!
