Dandelion Dreams & Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend! Yesterday was absolutely a lovely day and perfect for my great-nieces graduation party… and it’s always great to see family.

Today I have two cards for you, both using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set … just a different orientation. Our first card is has a similar layout as the card you saw yesterday. I also used the Garden Impressions Designer Paper again … but a totally different pattern!!

Do you agree with me … this designer paper is stunning!! I embossed my image directly onto the designer paper. This paper color coordinates with the new 2018-20 In-Color Blueberry Bushel – what a beautiful color.

The background was created by the simple technique of stamping “color on color” … in other words, Blueberry Bushel ink on Blueberry Bushel cardstock. I did the same on the cardstock that I embossed my greeting onto as well.

The greeting comes from the “Follow Your Dreams” stamp set.  This also comes in a bundle for a 10% Savings! It was heat embossed like the dandelion image and cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits.

Now ~ using the same designer paper, techniques and stamp set, we’ll change the orientation to a vertical card and you get this beautiful card …

So we switched the stamp from the dandelion set and used the greeting from the set as well but the Garden Impressions designer paper and embossing and stamping technique are all the same, but the card still looks different.

I did a little more layering of cardstock on this card and my base was Whisper White instead of the Blueberry Bushel like our first card.  My stampin’ tip for you today is to “Heat Set” your stamped cardstock before you emboss on it… you don’t want your embossing powder to stick onto the cardstock.

So … what do you think of this amazing combination of the beautiful blue Garden Impressions paper and the “Color on Color” stamping technique, then embossed in white? I’m lovin’ it!!

Thank you for stopping back today to check out yet another card with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

Hope you have a beautiful Monday!!
