Today's card features a fun way to use your inks to get the look of black embossing powder when you don't have any! These gorgeous images are from the Touches of Texture stamp set and the sentiment is from Cottage Greetings.
How To Make It:
Start with a card base of Crumb Cake cardstock and then add another layer of Crumb Cake on top of that.
On the top layer of Bermuda Bay cardstock, rub the Embossing Buddy over it before stamping the flower image from the Touches of Texture stamp set – ink up the stamp with VersaMark and then again with Archival Black Ink before stamping
Clean the stamp and repeat the VersaMark/Archival Black ink another 2 times in different positions across the bottom of the Bermuda Bay cardstock. Work swiftly to avoid the ink drying as you will be heat embossing the images.
Cover all stamped images with Clear embossing powder, then melt and heat set with Heat Tool.
Using the White Chalk Marker colour-in the flowers & blossoms. Once dry, colour over the top of the White Chalk Marker with Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Write Marker and then a touch of Rose Red Stampin’ Write marker in the centres.
Colour in the leaves with Cucumber Crush Stampin’ Write Marker.
Stamp the lace image from the Touches of Texture stamp set with Crumb Cake ink on the strip of Whisper White Cardstock. Once dry dust with the Embossing Buddy.
Ink up the sentiment from Cottage Greetings with VersaMark and then Black Archival Ink and stamp onto the Whisper White cardstock strip. Sprinkle with Clear Embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
VersaMark/Black Archival ink the bee image from Touches of Texture onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and the cover with Clear Embossing Powder. Heat set. Colour the bee image in with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.
Using a Glue Dot, adhere the bee to the Whisper White strip at an angle. Cut off any overhanging Whisper White cardstock (past the bee).
Use the Handheld Stapler to staple the Very Vanilla Lace Trim and the sentiment banner on to the upper right-hand-side of the Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Adhere the Bermuda Bay front panel on to the Crumb Cake layer on the card base.
As a final touch, add some small Pearl Basics Jewels at the top right of the card.
