I have been playing lots with the Embossing Paste the last few weeks – loving this stuff & also working on a couple of Creative Card Classes. One of the classes will be using the Paste, so be sure to book your spot.
I teamed the paste up with my new Oh, So Eclectic Bundle which only come in the post last week & has been sitting on my desk waiting & waiting.
Creative Cards are held the 1st & 2nd Tuesday of the month or the 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month….. You can find all the details on the Classes/Workshop Page.
My card today is so way out of my comfort zone with all the oranges of Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, So Saffaron & Garden Green. I am so happy with the card that I have actually decided to include it in one of the classes in the next month or so. Mind you, it doesn’t look much but it has taken me hours to finally create it what with all the playing & changing of colours, but hey that is the fun part of creating.
The flowers have been coloured & blended with my good ol’ Blender Pen. I don’t know what I would do without it. I then highlighted the flowers with a little Clear Wink of Stella. It brings out he colours so much more.
The leaves were stamped using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & again coloured with Old Olive Ink & Blender Pen. The Old Olive is a nice contrast against the Garden Green background.
I will let you in on a little secret, the circle was not originally on the card which meant the flowers were sort of lost in the background, so I sponged a die cut circle in So Saffron, popped them on & then onto the card. Made all the difference as it now looks like a completely different card.
I’m not gonna be mean & not share the tutorial today, so don’t forget to click on the link below to grab it so you, too can create a card.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
