Welcome to this month’s Creative Inking Blog Hop where we are celebrating the best sale of the year – Sale-a-Bration! I am focusing on one of the second release products – the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder! IT IS GOOOOORGEOUS!!!!!
Can you readily see why I LOVE the Country Floral Embossing Folder? Check out that amazing texture! Here I am showcasing it with the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack ( a very popular item from the Occasions catalog. You will create beautiful floral backgrounds with this embossing folder.
For this card, I colored with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. The colors I used are; Flirty Flamingo Light, Balmy Blue Light, Granny Apple Green Light & Dark, Daffodil Delight and Light Crumb Cake. Check out the video below for what I did differently on this card vs the others I am going to share. (Hint: Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend)
Tone on Tone Beauty
An easy tone on tone technique with the Country Floral Dynamic Texture Embossing folder is this Petal Pink colored cardfront! The use of the ink pad with the embossing folder sure makes the flowers pop! You will see this technique demonstrated in the video below.
The greeting is from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set from the Occasions catalog. The punch I used for the greeting is called Story Label and will be available exclusively in March – stay tuned!
Two Embossing Folders Together!
Yes, I used 2 embossing folders! First I used the Subtle Embossing folder to break up the fibers in the paper a little bit before embossing a second time with the Country Floral Embossing folder! Just check out the subtle texture in the image below!
Then I colored the background with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. The result is stunning as the flowers pop off the card! You can see that you don’t have to be exact with your coloring on this detailed image.
Coloring with Stampin’ Blends
I was inspired by the sample in the Sale-a-Bration brochure to color with the Stampin’ Blends. It’s SUPER easy! I LOVE the result! Check out the video for these techniques!
