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



I heat embossed the sentiments and added Paper Candi onto the rose card.
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.

I love how you found a solution to your "less loved" pattern paper. I will definitely look to my "low profile" pattern papers with different eyes from now on. Your cards look fantastic with the soft background flower and matching stamps.

Hallo Cornelia, tolle Karten, die Idee mit dem farbigen Vellum ist super! Die Karten wirken richtig klasse damit, weil die Stempel einfach genial zu dem schönen Papier passen. Danke für die Info, habe auch gerade gesehen, dass du das ja auch im Text angegeben hast. Viel Spaß weiterhin beim kreativen schaffen...
Lg Manuela
