Falling Flowers from Stampin' Up! - Chalky Blending & Gold Embossing

I suspect I fall into the same category as a lot of papercrafters.   I have a lot of stamp sets which just never see the light of day !

Falling Flowers has sat very patiently on my shelf waiting to be used.   What took me so long ?!! The stylised flowers and leaves are so very pretty.

Anyway, I haven't used Night of Navy in a while and thought that it would be just perfect for this technique. 

I heat embossed some flowers and leaves onto my card base 10 x 3.5 inches scored at 5 inches to fit into an envelope from my pack of note cards and envelopes (20 cards and envelopes for £5.50).

Then I took my Whisper White Craft inkpad and a blender pen and coloured each of the flowers and leaves by gently applying and giving each a nice translucent look.  I love how the chalky flowers contrast so prettily with the dark card stock.

The sentiment is from the Daisy Delight Photopolymer set.

I really loved this technique and am using it again over the coming days - same stamp set but a completely different colour scheme.

Thanks for looking - and please pop back again.

  1. Hi Linda lovely as always
    Love and huggles

  2. Hi Linda,

    That is what my hubby has said to me recently 'Have you used all the stamps/stamp sets you have?" I had to be truthful to him and tell him 'no' I had not used everyone of my stamps/stamp sets in a project yet. So I am not purchasing any more stamps/stamp sets until I have done this. Well done you too for using a stamp set that needed to be used. It is a beautiful stamp set too, that makes a beautiful card.


    1. Thank you Lorraine - I wonder how long you will be able to stick to that little promise ! LOL xxxx

    2. My husband is a golfer and a potter. We don't EVER have that discussion.
