Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Today I’m sharing a fun card that I made back in the fall of 2013!
The card highlights the Calypso Coral “grid paper” found in the paper packet, and for some reason … maybe it was the color, but I chose to team it up with the “Pleasant Poppies” stamp set. This is not a hard card to make, but has an awesome technique: Dazzling Diamond Dust.
I began coloring my poppies with markers and a blender pen. I scribbled the ink from the marker onto the plastic case of the stamp set, then pulled the color up with my blender pen… it gives you a softer look and you have much more control.
To do the “Dazzling Diamond Dust Technique” – Cover the entire cardstock of your stamped image with VersaMark™, then cover with “Iridescent Ice Embossing Power” and use heat gun to emboss the entire piece. So simple … so pretty.
For my greeting, I used the “nothing but heaven itself in better than a friend” from the “Blessings from Heaven” stamp set. Then topped it off with the Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon and 3 rhinestones.
Some stamp sets, layouts and techniques are timeless! Hmmm … must be why so many of us have a hard time parting with our retired sets!! You never know, we may want to use them again!! And we do!
Have a wonderful Thursday! Stop back tomorrow … I’ll be sharing the layout of this card with all new stamps and accessories.
Thanks for stopping by.
