Good morning! We are honored to be partnering with our good friend, Gina K, to release this incredibly gorgeous stamp set Friendship Blooms as part of our ongoing 45th Anniversary celebration!
Here’s what I created using the new set!
I decided to keep my card simple and allow the gorgeous stamp to shine! I started by using my MISTI to stamp the arrangement onto a piece of Azalea Hero Hues cardstock with versamark just to give me an outline of the stamp. Then I blasted it with a heat gun so the ink wouldn’t smear. Next I took two darker polychromos colored pencils, madder and pink carmine and lightly shaded the flowers.
Again I didn’t want to take much away from the details of the stamp so I kept at it with a very light hand. Once I was finished I placed the panel back in my MISTI and restamped it with versamark. This time I heat-embossed it with white satin pearl embossing powder. Stamping over the colored cardstock gave it a slightly pink hint. I stamped the sentiment from Friendship Blooms onto the panel with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I trimmed the panel down and adhered it to a white top-folding card base. Finally I finished the card with a few rosewater jewel drops and a layer of spectrum noir clear sparkle over the flowers.
