Embossed Rose Birthday

Hello, everyone! Rachel here today with a card without any coloring! Crazy, I know!

I decided to create my own patterned paper by stamping my Sweet Rose stamp multiple times across a colored piece of cardstock and then heat embossing the images in white. It really makes the images pop off the paper! I cut my piece down to just smaller than a card base (4 inches by 5 1/4 inches). I used some double-sided tape to adhere my panel to the front of a white card base and then set to work on my sentiment.

I wanted my "happy" die cut to be more dimensional, so I cut it from some white paper 4 times. I heat embossed one with silver embossing powder. To get it looking so smooth and shiny, I used 3 layers of embossing powder. Yes, I know, it seems like a lot, but it really makes a difference! I adhered it to my card front with some multi-medium matte. I stamped the next part of my sentiment on some scrap white cardstock and then heat embossing in silver to match my die cut. I carefully cut it down to a small strip and then used a mix of multi-medium matte and foam tape to adhere it on top of my die cut. I finished off the card with a few pearl embellishments.

That's all for this card! Super easy, but a great way to use those line stamps without having to color them! Thanks for stopping by!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…
