Hello and welcome back! Today I have a few cards to share that I made with a stamp set by Spellbinders this past weekend. I hope you enjoy these and find some inspiration in them.
The name of the stamp set I used is called Floral Love. Here is a link for you to check it out if you are interested: https://www.spellbinderspaperarts.com/clear-stamps/
These lovely flowers make for such a beautiful heat embossed flower bouquet. You could also color it but I felt that it would make a nice mono-chromatic card.
Let’s dive right into it.
These are very simple projects, so really all you need is embossing powder, anti-static powder and card stock. And of course a heat gun. I also used some foam squares to make the sentiment stand out.
For my second project below, I decided to play with alcohol inks, but more to that later.
This is a new stamp set, so I decided to use my Misti to align my stamp and make sure I had a good impression. I centered it on my vertical card stock and stamped with VersaMark ink, then I rotated my card stock and after inking it up, stamped again.
I used different colors of embossing powder for a different feel.
Here are the embossing powders I used:

After heat embossing all three card, i added a sentiment from the same stamp set.
This fourth card was made the same way, except that I aligned the stamp from the left side on a piece of vertical card stock. Then I added the butterfly and dragonfly to give it more interest.
Now to my last card for today: On this card, I used some alcohol Yupo Paper and alcohol inks.
I love playing with alcohol inks. But I wanted deep colors and did not want to play with water, so I dripped the alcohol inks directly onto the card stock and let them expand. In other words, a few drops of each color is plenty. I put them aside while making more backgrounds and to let them dry.
For my next step, you will need the Alcohol Lift Ink Pad and a cloth or a paper towel. This time I used a large block and inked up my stamp with the Alcohol Ink then stamped it where i wanted it. At first it doesn’t seem like much, but once I started dabbing the paper towel over the image (DO NOT RUB), the image became really white or bleached out. Then I stamped the ink off on a white piece of card stock to create another another card, which I will share with you another time. I aligned the stamp from the other side (see below) and repeated the process as before.
I added a sentiment and my card was done.
I think this stamp set would also make beautiful birthday cards if you wanted to add a birthday greeting with some vellum. I may make a few more and add them to my gallery at a later time.
I hope you enjoyed these cards and as always please feel free to leave me a comment below or if you have any questions. I would also love it if you subscribed to my blog. I only send occasional emails.
Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by.
