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.

  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.

    :O)
