Just Thinking of You Today

Hello, stampers!

Memory Box just released its latest collection, and today I've made a card featuring two of the new stamps! I also tried some new things on this card and was really pleased with my results.

  1. I used Inktense watercolor pencils for the first time; and
  2. I decided to dry emboss and ink my stamped image after I'd colored it.

What a stunning card! I just love this new release - can't wait to get my hands on these stamps!!!

Could you explain what you mean by dry emboss and then ink stamped image? Do you mean emboss background?

Lovely card, thanks for the inspiration!

Beautiful card! The tissue flower stamp is so delicate.

I am a 'flower junkie' and these new stamps are making me drool!

Thank you, Janet

Deborah, that's a lovely card! The details on this card are terrific.

Love your card Deborah, so beautiful. I'd love to see a tutorial. TFS

Thank you for all the lovely comments!

To answer your question, Jan, I stamped and colored my flower and sentiment on a flat panel of cardstock just like I normally would. Then I put it into an embossing folder and ran it through my Vagabond. Then I lightly inked the raised surface of the embossing with Ranger Distress (Pumice Stone) ink on a foam ink applicator tool. (I didn't ink the embossed bits that are over the flower.)

Great card!! Love the dry embossing detail behind the stamp. Will have to get that sentiment stamp at my LSS. Thanks for sharing.

Oh Oh.. I feel a new addiction coming on. I have loads of Memory Box Dies... but not one stamp from Memory Box.... I fear that is about to change. Gorgeous card ! Can't wait to copy it.
I look forward to starting my "new" stamp collection.

Beautiful card! Love your technique, the background is gorgeous.
