Good Morning! Thank you so much for stopping! We are now into a wonderful time of the Stampin` Up! year!! Our Occasions Spring Catalog and Sale A Bration has begun! I love free products, don’t you? Come be a part of all the excitement with me! Take a class with me.. schedule a party! I will make sure you have the BEST time ever! Being creation is so much fun and is very theraputic!

Ill explain more of what Sale A Bration is all about in a minute (in case you missed it yesterday). I also want to share with you a fun card I made – after all, it is fun to grab some creative inspiration, right? I used the Snuggles & Smooches Pohopolymer Stamp Set. It is such a cute set for making some adorable Valentine cards!

Here is today’s ink-spiration:

Supplies Used:

  • Snuggles & Smooches Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Crumb Cake, Real Red and Whisper White Card Stock
  • VersaMark Stamp Pad
  • White Embossing Powder
  • Heat Tool
  • Real Red, and Bermuda Bay Classic Ink Pads
  • Aqua Painter
  • Heart Punch
  • Staz On Black Ink Pad
  • Basic Rhinestones
  • Snail Adhesive and Stampin Dimensionals

Technique Time!

Want to try this yourself? It is so easy! First, I used Watercolor Ppaer.

I used my Versamark Pad and the squiggles, and stamped it on the watercolor paper.

I then applied the White Embossing Powder on the image immediately.

I used my heat tool and embossed the images.

I then used my Aqua Painter and my Bermuda Bay Ink Pad (as my palette), and lightly brushed the ink color over the entire piece of Watercolor Paper.

How easy right? Now, you give it a try! As you can see, the embossed image will “resist” the ink, making it pop! I love it!
