I had lots of fun creating my card for today's hop! Read on for the details.
First, I stamped the outline layer of one of the gorgeous Majestic Bouquet flowers with clear embossing ink onto 80# Neenah Solar White card stock. Then I sprinkled on Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder and heat set it. Then I followed the included layering guide to stamp the layering stamps with Mountain Mist, Lagoon, and Volcano Lake inks from the Sea Shore Crisp Dye ink cube set. I repeated these steps for the two leaf clusters you see on the right. I also stamped the solid layer of the little flowers with Mountain Mist ink. I always use my MISTI for stamping--it was a game changer for me!
I had this idea to extend the stamping over onto strips of gradient cardstock. I figured if it didn't work out, I could just use it as is with just the white card stock. I used two colors from the Sea Shore Gradient Cardstock Set and cut the Volcano Lake paper into a ½" strip. I cut the Mountain Mist paper into a ¾" strip. Then I added ½" double-sided adhesive to the back to hold the two strips together. (I left the adhesive's backer sheet on for now.)
Next I lined up the strip on the left of the panel that I had previously stamped and embossed. I lined up the outline stamp over the first stamping and overlapping onto the colored card stock. I picked the stamp up with the MISTI door, removed the white card panel, stamped and heat embossed the Rose Gold embossing powder. I repeated the stamp layers and colors as I described above. I did double stamp most of the colors to make them stand out more. When I finished my stamping I adhered the strips to my card front.
To finish up, I selected a sentiment from the Majestic Bouquet stamp set, stamped it in clear ink, and heat embossed Rose Gold embossing powder. I love how this turned out and hope I've given you some inspiration for your card making! Thanks so much for hopping by!
