Have A Lovely Day

I have recently found the technique of stamping an outline stamp with white embossing powder and filling it in with watercolor.  I really like how this flower card turned out using the “Lovely Day” stamp set.

The card base is Lemongrass card stock stamped with a scritch scratch background stamp in Whip Cream ink.  It makes a very subtle soft backdrop.  The flower is stamped with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed with White Embossing powder.  The flowers are water colored with a light blue and golden ink and then outlined with a darker blue ink to make them pop.  The sentiment is white heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and I added a triple bow in Lemongrass thread.  I also added some Journey sequins for sparkle.  I like it!  Now I have to get back to making Easter cards.

Thanks for looking.

February FSJ Bloom Box

I finished my Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box cards for February.  I love this butterfly stamp set (Bold Wings, SS-0420) and Richard’s card designs are gorgeous.

If you haven’t seen the Bloom Box before, it contains a full size stamp set, all of the card stock and all of the embellishments you need to create four different cards.  It also includes a four-color booklet with instructions and illustrations for each of the four cards.  The only thing you need to supply is the ink and glue.

If you are interested in receiving your own Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Box, please contact me at gensweider9@gmail.com.
