Super Sunday-Stampers For Others!

Our group "Stampers for Others" May challenge is to create a "Thank You Card" - must use one layer of embossing and one embellishment! Here is the card I entered into our contest:

I wanted to use "Concord Crush Cardstock" one last time. This color will be retired at the end of this month and new colors are coming. For the embossing part of the challenge I used the "Flower Garden Textured Impressions Folder" and sponged the embossing with a "Sponge Dauber" and "Craft Whisper White Ink". What an easy way to highlight the embossing yet add color:

Notice the ribbon on the card? This ribbon will be retiring also. The sentiment is from the "Petite Pairs Stamp Set" and inked in "Craft Whisper White Ink". I triple-layered the sentiment by first cutting it with the "Large Oval Punch", followed by the "Scallop Oval Punch", and finally with the "Wide Oval Punch".
Complete the card by adding "Pearl Jewels" and a few butterflies from the "Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die".

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Concord Crush, Whisper White, Melon Mambo
  • Inks: Craft Whisper White
  • Accessories: Concord Crush 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon , Pearl Jewels
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Flower Garden Textured Impressions Folder, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Stampin' Dimensionals

  1. Beautiful card and love how you tied the ribbon!

  2. I love this beautiful card!! Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. I've had trouble with the craft paint smearing, did you heat set it or anything after you stamped? I love the look and want to do this, help! I love your card and I must have this embossing folder, gorgeous!

  4. Hi Sheila, I sponged the ink on the embossing and while I completed my other layers, it was dry enough to work with. If you are worried that this will smear, you can also sprinkle white embossing powder over the craft ink and heat set. The craft ink works just like VersaMark when embossing. It stays wet enough so that embossing powder will stick to it. Hope that helps!
