Dandelion Wishes - Well Wishes


I have another .... very simple .... Dandelion Wishes card to share with you today.

The image and sentiment were stamped in Black ink and embossed using Clear powder.

I then used several colours of ink to sponge over the background.


I used a piece of our normal weight Whisper White card this time, so the sponging isn't as smooth as it would be using our Glossy White. I do like the slightly textured effect you get using it though :o)

I added different colours randomly over the mat, blending each as I went. When the whole thing was almost completely covered, I used a little So Saffron ink to sponge over the whole piece. This helps all the colours blend into each other a bit more.

I used Versafine Onyx Black ink for my stamping before embossing. I love this ink because you don't lose any of the fine detail with it - as you would do if stamping with Versamark and then heat embossing with Black powder.

Dandelion Wishes - Emboss Resist Sponged Background - Video


Dandelion Wishes was one of the stamp sets that caught my eye immediately on seeing it in our new Annual Catalogue .... and it had to be one of the first I played with once I got my hands on all my new goodies :o)

I love this set for the images and also for the beautiful font used for the sentiments. I haven't used any of the sentiments on this card - purely because I needed a Birthday card.


The image panel is our Glossy White card. I heat embossed the image onto it and then sponged the background before running it through the Big Shot with our new Tufted Dynamic Embossing folder.

The paper is from our Subtles Collection 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper pack.

The image and sentiment was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink and Heat Embossed using our Clear Powder.

If you would like to see how I created the card, here is the Video ....

Jar Of Love - Hello


I have still been playing with the Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating Everyday Jars framelits. 

I chose to use the flowers this time. You get several different types in the set, but these larger ones are my favourite!

You get a choice of foliage too and I used both sets on this card, cutting one of them out with it's matching die.


The 'water' in the Jar was stamped using Balmy Blue (after stamping 'off').

The sentiment is stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink and Heat Embossed using our Clear Powder.
