Enjoy the Rhythm – Freshly Made Sketches #620

Happy Monday friends, I’m getting back to the rhythm of going back to my day job today after being on 5 weeks school holidays. Ah, the end of no alarms and sleep-ins.

For this sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches FMS620 I’ve use the Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set as my featured image.

The 3 circles have been die cut from different dies to create different edges, while the main image has been coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

For the Wild Wheat circle I applied a mask to create some texture and then stamped the music score for some detail. This card was one of the cards I created during my Free class on Friday. You can watch the video (link below).

Gilding your Embossed Backgrounds

When I saw the theme at Just Add Ink Challenges #655 I knew I had to take part. Music has been a part of my life since the day I was born. With a mother who was a piano teacher and choir directress we were a home immersed in it’s rich heritage.

I chose the Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set with an idea of making more of a guy card. Taking a panel of Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper, I embossed it with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. This Pebble Path sheet has a dry brush look background which immediately added a light and dark area to the embossing.

I went over the embossing with Tuxedo Black, using a Sponge Dauber to highlight the music notes.

Next I added a banner with the Dry Brushed Metallic Paper which was a look I liked. At this point I decided to add the Gilded Leafing over the embossed panel as I felt it would work well against the Specialty Paper. I used a brush and my fingers to smoothen the surface and take off the excess. Have you played with Gilded Leafing? It’s a fun product which adds beautiful texture.

There are different ways you can apply Gilded Leafing. On this card, I roughly dragged the Versamark Ink Pad in the areas that I wanted the gold on. Then I applied Heat & Stick Powder over these areas, activating the stickiness by heating it with a Heat Tool. Next I laid the embossed panel face down into my Gilded Leafing container.


  • Transfer the Gilded Leafing to a larger box.
    It comes packaged in a small container. By transferring it to a larger container, I’m able to place a card front in it and have more space to work with it.
  • Use the brush from the Embossing Additions Tool Kit to brush away the excess.
  • Don’t breathe over it or sneeze on it! It will fly away everywhere!

Using Paper Snips, I gently scraped off some of the Gilded Leafing to expose the notes and stave. I really liked this background which highlighted the embossed detail even more and gave it a bit of a ‘funky’ look.

On the sentiment panel, I stamped sections of the piano keys by masking off the sentiment, to create some added texture. The guitar which has been coloured with Stampin’ Blends was kept simple against the gold tinged background.

I hope you give this fun techique a try and if you have any questions please get in touch with me. All supplies I have used are listed below. If you live in Australia, you can shop with me by placing an order online or by contacting me.

Crafty Collaborations 2023 Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. Today, I’m taking party in the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop and we are showcasing products from our new Mini Catalogue which launched on the 5th of January.

Coming from a musical family, the Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set was a ‘must have’ for me. There are so many fun musical images which can be coloured in and matched with the range of sentiments. My favourite – Treblemaker!

I coloured the drum set in a range of Watercolour Pencils – Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray. I used the backing of the of the cling stamp as a mask, and stamped the stave of notes around the image in Bermuda Bay ink then blended Pale Papaya ink around the circle.

My colour palette has been inspired by the Colour Inkspiration colour challenge #135.

Some Pale Papaya ink was blended at the bottom of the card base to add depth. Around the tag I coloured the edge with the Calypso Coral Watercolour Pencil to create a simple border to coordinate.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have been inspired to consider adding the Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set to your Wish List. Full list of products are at the bottom of this post.
