Today’s project was something I ‘sort of’ CASE’d from Stampin’ Up’s new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog (You know, the one that just went live?!) On page 240, they show a set of cards in a stamped clear box. I loved the combination of the dark ink on the Blackberry Bliss cardstock, and I also loved the white flowered overlay. I wondered if I could recreate that look on a card. So I started with a base of Basic Black, and stamped the large flower from the Bloom With Hope hostess set in black ink. Loving it so far, now to get the white flowers. I thought about heat embossing with Whisper White embossing powder, but decided that would be too bold; I was after a little softer look. Then it came to me – use White StazOn with the flower/bud combo, also from Bloom With Hope! It came out exactly as I had envisioned, and the white flowers look like they’re floating over the dark ones – very cool effect… I finished it off with a greeting from the same stamp set, and a little of the 3/4″ Stitched Satin Ribbon in Mossy Meadow – great color combo!! (This year’s In-Colors are just beautiful…) This year’s catalog is stuffed full of ideas and inspiration for you to play with. Do yourself a favor and get your copy today. Send me an e-mail and I’ll get one out to you right away. All it’ll cost you is the postage, and that’s refunded with your $50.00 order!
