Love What You Do & Some Chalky Blending

There are some very pretty images in the Love What you Do stamp set and I decided to use a few for this little card.

I chose to work with Gorgeous Grape card stock which is a beautiful rich purple colour.  I heat embossed the stamped images with white embossing powder and coloured each of the flowers and berries with Whisper White Craft Ink, applying it in light strokes with a blender pen.  I do keep one blender pen specifically for using with white chalky ink.

I like the understated finished result but added just a touch of bling with a few sparkly embellishments.

Hope you like it.  Things have been a little quiet from me, because life just gets in the way sometimes, but I have been back crafting and trying to rekindle some creativity.  I have even managed to put together a two-part video tutorial which I hope to share over the coming days for a cute little 3D project.

So its ciao for now and I hope you will come back for another visit.

  3. Love your card. I need 3 sets of cards for small bingo gifts for a church function. Was not sure what I wanted to do because of limited time, but now I know. Will make 4 different colors of this card with 4 different sentiments, put one of each color in a clear box, add a bow and be done in no time with great items to donate. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    1. How brilliant is that ? !!! Hope you have fun making them Beth x

  4. Thank you Linda for demonstrating how a simple card can look classy too! Putting the white embossing powder with the white chalk ink inside the flowers is such a great technique. White craft ink has gone to the top of my Wish List now. The white looks amazing against the dark card stock such as the Gorgeous Grape and I am sure it will work with other dark card stocks too. Thank you for sharing this project with us crafters Linda. xx
