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!

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.

On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
