Stamping With Friends Blog Hop - Monochromatic Card Challenge

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends December Blog Hop as we share what projects we are currently working on to inspire you. You will be visiting with our Design Team Members as they share their wonderful projects and ideas to help spark your creativity. This month our theme is Monochromatic Cards.

I used the Stampin' Up!® Calming Camellia to create 2 versions of my card using the Emboss Resist Technique in Polished Pink and Gorgeous Grape.  This beautiful Distinktive Stamp Set can be yours during Sale-a-Bration when you host a party or place an order of $375 Canadian.  

I love both versions!  Which is your favourite?

  1. Cut Gorgeous Grape (Polished PInk) card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score at 4 1/4" and fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Stamp image using VersaMark ink and spring White Embossing Powder over image.
  4. Shake off excess. 
  5. Heat to melt and let cool
  6. Use Blending Brush to add Gorgeous Grape Ink (Polished PInk Ink) over embossed image to "pop" the colour.
  7. Stamp sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on bottom
  8. Adhere to card base.
  9. Adhere 3 Pastel Pearls
  10. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4
  11. Stamp image using Gorgeous Grape (Polished PInk) ink  in bottom right corner
  12. Adhere to the inside of the card.

All of the supplies to make this card are available in my Online Store.
