In Color Bouquet

Beautiful Bouquet Bundle

I designed this card for my friend's birthday and had a lot of fun combining the In Color's from the annual catalog and the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle elements.  I used a Basic Black card base and framed the bouquet with Berry Burst card stock.  It was then set on a Whisper White ruffled background.

Party Time Card

Washi Tape is often overlooked in the catalog.  It is actually a versatile element in the crafting arsenal.  I used the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape to create the whimsical banner behind the "50" element.  I lined up the washi tape on a scrap of paper, trimmed it down and punched the ends in a banner with the Banner Triple punch.  I also used it inside the card to add a punch of color. So simple!

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!
