I really love how this card turned out. It started as coloring for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge and morphed into this beautiful card. I colored this stamp with Copic Markers. This is a stamp by Concord & 9th called Wonderful Florals. There is a stamp set and a coordinating die set available. You will want the die set trust me. There are so many fun things you can do with this.
HERE is Link to the Wonderful Florals Stamp Set and to the coordinating Die Set.
So, there's a lot going on with this card. As I said I colored with Copics First. Then I cut the stamp out with the coordinating outline die. Next, I wanted to do something with the Wonderful letters to make them stand out but not conflict with the colors in the flowers. I decided to emboss the letters with gold embossing powder using the striped stamp in the set. I used Ranger Superfine Detail Embossing Powder.
There are probably others ways to emboss the letters but this is how I did it: I used a light color ink to stamp the wonderful stamp and then I cut out the wonderful letters part with the coordinating die. Next, I used a tape runner and put a little bit of adhesive on a piece of copy paper and I adhered each letter. The paper is creased so I can put the embossing powder back into the jar. I stamped each one with Versamark Ink using striped stamp in the set. Be sure to use your embossing buddy first so none of the powder sticks where you don't want it. Pour the embossing powder over the letters and then pour back into the jar. You can do all of this on this one piece of paper. Then I glued the letters on the card over the letters already there.
I love how the striped gold embossing looks! I also embossed a couple other stamps from the set, 'For A' and 'Friend' with the gold embossing powder on white cardstock and cut out the strip. I used foam squares to give them dimension. Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Foam Squares are perfect for this.
I used foam under the Wonderful stamp to give it dimension as well. I almost put this stamp on a white card base and then I decided to find a matching color cardstock and stamp some of the smaller stamps around the edge and emboss with clear embossing powder. I used a small flower, leaves and a sprig. I used Ranger Clear Embossing Powder for this. It just adds some interest and shine but because it blends in with the cardstock, I don't think it is too busy or conflicts with the Wonderful stamp. I finished it by adding some clear confetti.
I really did have so much fun with this stamp set and dies. You can also cut extra flowers out with the other dies and color them and then pop onto the card over the flowers to give more dimension.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!
