Have you checked out the Hello Friend Stamp set that is on page 17 of the Annual Catalog? It goes with the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit. I haven’t done the kit yet, but I did have a chance to play with the stamp set. It is AMAZING! I have a video using your clear blocks and Ink Pads to make the Faux Watercolor Background: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8EFoUYxKwc&feature=youtu.be
I made this card for my friend Patty! If we recruited during Sale-a-bration, she was going to give us all her Ribbon of Courage Stamp set, but many of us received this set at OnStage in April, so she gave us the matching framelits. How cool is that? So I wanted to show her a little love with this card. Patty had shown me this color combo (& gave me a piece of watercolor paper using these colors, so I wouldn’t forget, LOL), so I knew I needed to use these colors.
This is my color palette:
After I did the background,(make sure you use Watercolor Paper) I embossed with White Embossing Powder the big background stamp in this set. I also embossed the Thinking of my friend today. Then I started layering all my pieces. I’ve got a strip of the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper, also a smaller strip of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper the Tango Tangerine Starburst Punch, all which I stapled together before adding it to my Water Colored Background. Oops, don’t forget to add a piece of a Doily to the Starburst Punch.Topped it off with some Peekaboo Peach Baker’s Twine. All were attached with Dimensionals. The sentiment went on last with Dimensionals as well.
And while you have your stamps out, why not decorate the envelope? Our envelopes are really nice to stamp on. Give it a try.
Did you notice that beautiful Embossing Folder? Its called Layered Leaves. Love it! I forgot to list Fast Fuse, (#129027, refill) in my Supply List. Its a must when you are using the Watercolor Paper.
