Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I have another card to share from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set and a fun technique that really showcases the silhouette aspect of this stamp set. There are three different images in this stamp set and it’s when you add ink that they really come to life.
I’m going to be using a type of “Emboss Resist” technique on my card today. Starting with the VersaMark pad … ink up the butterfly image and stamp it onto your card front (I’m using a 3-3/4″ x 5″ sheet of Basic White) re-apply ink and stamp a second and repeat. Pour White embossing powder over the butterfly images and heat until the powder turns smooth and shiny.
Next I pulled out my Blending Brushes along with Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, and Coastal Cabana ink pads….
Pull the Blending Brush across the ink pad to ink up and then using a rotating motion beginning “off” your cardstock bring it in and color in your butterflies. I used a different brush for each color. Then grab a tissue and wipe excess ink off of the embossed area.
Once the excess ink is wiped off, I added the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon between two of the butterflies attaching the ends to the backside of the card front. Once secure, I tied another piece onto the ribbon to create a bow. This is when I layered the Flirty Flamingo mat behind my card front.
Using the same Charming Sentiments bundle I used on yesterday’s card, I stamped the “Faith over Fear” sentiment in Highland Heather and then die cut it with the coordinating dies in the bundle.
I then embellished the card using the Iridescent Rhinestones. I love how they pick up the colors of the ink I used and just twinkle on this card … it gives you a soft, warm feeling like a hug, and pairs perfectly with our sentiment.
Such a beautiful card with a soft touch of color, and pretty darn easy to make too! Embossing is what actually attracted me to the world of stamping, with a few simple steps you can elevate your card to the next level. What inspired you to begin stamping?
