Happy Friday friends! Today I’m on the Pink & Main blog for release day! This is a gorgeous release with lots of variety in products. Today I have a pair of cards featuring the new Wildflowers stamp set and a few of the beautiful embossing powder colors that came out a few months ago.
To create these cards, I started with A2 size panels of kraft cardstock and the Wildflowers stamp set. First, I arranged all of the images from the set creating a full background. I stamped it with the Watermark & Embossing Ink and sprinkled embossing powders on it one section at a time. For this card I chose Sour Apple, Bubblegum and Grape Soda. Once the panel was covered, I heated it up with my heat gun and set it aside to cool.
Next, I cut the panel down with a Stacking Rectangle die and added foam tape to the back before popping it on a white card base. Next, I cut the Big Thank You from white cardstock four times along with the shadow from vellum once. I used EZ Squeeze liquid glue to adhere the layers together and add it to my card front too.
This is a simple design but it’s so pretty and I love the color pop from the embossing powders. Next, I have a card that highlights the images differently but uses the same technique.
For this card, I placed the panel in my MISTI and used the flower image as a guide where to stamp the foliage images because I wanted them “behind” the flower stem. I stamped two foliage images with different green dye inks, then stamped the flower with Watermark & Embossing Ink. I carefully sprinkled Sour Apple on the stem and Grape Soda on the flower portion. Then heated it up to melt the powder.
This time I used the Big Hello dies to cut from white cardstock and vellum, adhering them together with liquid glue once again. The rest of the card is assembled the same way but I decided to add a little twine bow around the bottom of the stems to finish the card off.
I thought this was a fun way to use silhouette stamps without making them black and I love the colored embossing powders that pop off the neutral elements too!
