Make sure to check out these great blogs for inspiration. They have great layouts, color combinations and themes to choose from. For the above card, I used the following blogs for inspiration.
Emboss Resist Technique
Emboss Resist is a technique that creates a lot of impact for very little effort. On a small piece of whisper white card stock, you simply stamp the Brushstrokes image in Versamark ink, sprinkle with clear or white embossing powder, and then melt it with a heat gun.
Using sponge wedges, sponge each of the five colors right over the top of the embossing. Wipe the remaining ink off the embossed stripes with a paper towel. So much fun while being a quick technique. Try it out!
Label Me Pretty Bundle
Using the little label from the Label Me Pretty stamp set, stamp the curly cue in Fresh Fig ink and the sentiment “You’re the Best” in Tranquil tide. Just punch it out with the coordinating punch. I love that Stampin’ UP makes this so easy. Top it off with a In Color Bitty Bow. I chose the Lemon Lime Twist one. Done!
