STAMPlorations Spotlight on Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments
Hi, its Cornelia here!
Today I want to explore some options with the Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments set from STAMPlorations. I have already played around with it HERE and HERE. And if you are familiar with the STAMPlorations blog you have seen my teamies using it as well.
And that is what I want to share with you today:
I used glossy paper and stamped with Staz-on ink and then used Marvy markers to color the images. I have that patterned paper at home, basically forever. It was the first patterned paper I ever bought. And I rarely ever use any.....but those stamps reminded me about some of those papers and wanted to incorporate it into a card somehow. I have tried them in the past, but found the pattern to overpowering and the colors weird......So I took some colored vellum and overlaid it onto the paper. I glued the vellum to the PP where the black panel is, so you won't see the glue. The string on top hold it in place there as well
And now my tip of the week:
Have you ever had problems with embossing powder blowing away when heating it with the heat gun - especially annoying if it is a very detailed image? I solve that problem with heat embossing the backside of the paper - it takes a tad longer, but the powder melts beautifully without even loosing a single granule.
Thank you for visiting me today and if you click HERE it gets you over to STAMPlorations!
I am also linking this up with the July Linky Party for a chance to win a $25.00 gift card in the a2zscrapbooking Store.
