Hey there! It's time for the April Edition of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! This month we are using Carryover sets that will be in the new Annual Catalog, beginning June 1st, but you can still order them now too!
I decided to use Dragonfly Dreams for my hop project!
I combined embossing folder "stamping"and triple time stamping with the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle. My card is inspired by Lavinia Gruizinga.
To "stamp" with an embossing folder: rub the raised side of the folder directly with your inkpads. Starting at the bottom of the folder, I applied Emerald Envy, Wild Wasabi, Bermuda Bay, and Tempting Turquoise. I then spritzed iberally with water before putting the Shimmery White layer directly on the inked surface and gently pressing and smoothing with my fingers. NOTE: this is an inky, messy technique, so you may want to wear protective gloves!
After holding the paper on the folder for a few extra seconds to allow the ink to absorb, remove and set aside to dry for several minutes or speed up the drying with a Heat Tool. You will know the paper is dry when it is flat again.
You can usually get two card fronts from each inking of the folder as long as you spritz again with water in between. No two fronts will ever look the same!
I white heat embossed the sentiment from Dragonfly Dreams. The Rhinestones are now retired and sold out, but don't worry, there will be a new configuration of Rhinestones and Pearls in the next catalog!
Inside I inked Stylized Birthday and the Awesomely Artistic dragonfly with the same colors using the Baby Wipe technique to ink the stamps.
