I love a lot of Reverse Confetti products, but don't have many in my stash yet. I'll be entering all the monthly challenges I can & luckily the June Stock Your Stash theme is Hello/Just Because. Next to Christmas cards, they're my favorite to make. Tall Blooms is the beautiful stamp set in my stash & it happens to include a sentiment perfect for the challenge.
I have a whole drawer of embossing powders as I loved heat embossing the first time I was introduced to it. Most of the bottles are nearly full & still work great. I pulled out 2 from JudiKins: Malachite & Metallic Bronze. First I stamped on white cardstock, but the powder didn't show up very well using these outline images. I switched to kraft & that made all the difference.
Originally I planned to put a sentiment strip over the images, but I really didn't want to cover up any of that beautiful heat embossing. Ended up with a traditional layout that always seems to work.
Next is my entry for AAA Cards Challenge: One Layer with Optional Twist only Black & White. I had lots of ideas running through my head & this wasn't one of them--haha! However, I pulled out Winnie & Walter's In A Word: Thanks stamp set--one of my newest & a favorite.
I decided to just stamp the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I used my Mini MISTI, but one inking is all it took. Sure sign of the quality of the stamps & inks. This set includes 4 large words, companion words & 5 small images. I took out the little branch & thought it would be fun to add it to one of the letters. Wasn't sure I could make it work, but it's only paper. I held my breath & stamped. Gotta say--I love the result! Both of these cards are already in the mail & I hope the recipients enjoy them.
