Hi all, welcome to my very first blog posts as a Guest for Spellbinders for their Cardmaker II Stamp collection.
Today, I have played with the New Start stampset and boy oh boy this is such a pretty and heart-felt stampset. The sentiments in this stampet were quite fitting for this point of my life as I make cards for end-of-year graduates. To fill you in, my son Saxon just graduated Grade 12 and is now moving forward with his adult life. What a whirlwind of a week it has been for our family. I look forward to the mark he makes in this world whether it is going to University / College or just being a good model citizen.
Now onto my card – sorry for the side track…..
I couldn’t help myself and I just had to heat emboss these delicate butterflies with WOW! Embossing Powder Teal Luster. I also added some embossing glitter behind the enmbossing folder cuts with Catherine Pooler ‘Uptown’ embossing glitter. I love the peek-a-boo effect these folders give.
Who doesn’t love a little ink blending right? I have mixed two colour inks from Catherine Pooler to get this blend – Cover Blue & Serene to the bottom left of the dry embossed panel. I kept this card rather simple. What do you think?
