I’ve been creating a few cards with the Touched my Heart stamp set lately and love the beautiful flourish style, leaf images in it. Yesterday, I created a couple of cards using this stamp set in my Online Workshop. You can view the video in my Online Workshop and Events Group. I also have a special ordering special available until Tuesday 21st July so you don’t want to miss out on that!
I started of by creating the Colour Blocking technique on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock.
Colour Block Technique
- Apply Crumb Cake ink pad directly to the bottom of Clear Block
- Apply Cinnamon Cider ink pad directly to the centre of Clear Block (wipe off any that may have applied to the top)
- Turn block so the top is now at the bottom. This will help you you to apply the Real Red on the top 1/3 of the Clear Block.
- Keep the Clear Block flat on your desk or hold it flat. Then spritz with water using a spritzer.
- Take Clear Block and apply directly to chosen cardstock.
I heat embossed the leaf in White Embossing Powder and then added some extra leaves in Cinnamon Cider. This is such a beautiful colour combination which has been inspired by the Colour Inkspiration Challenge CI81.
I was inspired by our CEO Sara Douglas who showed us some fun techniques with our Embossing Paste in her FB live last week. It’s been a while since I’ve had fun with Embossing Pastes so I thought I’d get into it.
Here I’ve added a drop of Real Red ink refill to the embossing paste and applied it through the mask to create a background.
Several ribbons combine to embellish this card. I separated the cheese cloth style ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim to create the strands in my cluster of ribbon trim.
