Hello! Welcome to the Go For Greece Blog Hop! Go For Greece is a training group put on by the lovely Kylie Bertucci, and we are all building our Stampin’ Up! businesses. Thank you for your support as I build mine!
In case you’re wondering about my blog post title, no, this isn’t a thank you card for someone named Heather. It’s a thank you card where I used the new Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends. My post titles are always cheesy and weird, in case you missed that.
I colored these flowers a couple of weeks ago, but they got buried on my desk. I unearthed them yesterday and finally fussy-cut them with my Paper Snips and put them on a card. I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored the flowers themselves with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends (both Light and Dark). I colored the flower centers with the Dark Daffodil Delight marker. For the leaves, I first started with Dark Daffodil Delight and colored around the centers and some edges of the leaves. Then I went over certain spots, namely the center lines and the edges, with Dark Call Me Clover. Then I blended everything with Light Call Me Clover, being careful not to completely color over all of the Daffodil Delight, to make sure the leaves still had some yellow.
I started with a Gorgeous Grape card base and laid out my whole card before stamping the sentiment. I embossed the strip of Mint Macaron with one of the embossing folders from the Petal Pair set of folders. Then I put the flowers on Dimensionals and set them down. I didn’t glue anything down yet. I put the whole card in the Stamparatus and lined up where I wanted the sentiment to go, then removed everything but the card base, clamped the card base down with a Stamparatus magnet, then stamped the sentiment in Versamark. I embossed it with White embossing powder and the Heat Tool. Then I glued everything down and added some Faceted Dots.
