This card features stamps from the “Winter Flowers” stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.
I heat embossed the images in Hero Arts Copper embossing powder on black card stock and colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and a Dove Blending Pen. I am honestly not sure how I feel about this as it is awfully dark. I was trying to use traditional red and green, but I think it might have needed lighter colored pencils? I did think it was cool that the colored pencils actually showed up on the black; I was expecting to need to put white pencil or ink down first (and I did not need to). Anyway, I also purchased the “Spring Flowers” set which is similar in style, and I think I will try this technique again with lighter colors.
The mat is “Copper” card stock from Cardstock Warehouse’s Starstream Collection with an ivory card base. The Merry Christmas stamp is from the “Sentimental Holidays” set (retired?) from Gina K Designs.
While I still had the embossing supplies out and the stamps on my MISTI, I decided to make a few simple thank you notes.
The thank you stamp was from the “Wonderful Words I” set (retired?) from Stampin’ Up. There were long lines/tails at the beginning and end of the words that I masked off for this card.
The card based is “Ocean Tides” from Papertrey Ink. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I added texture to the stamped panel with Gina K Designs Whisper Amalgam Ink and the GKD Gauze background stamp.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
