Introducing Mint Macaron & A Copy In Marina Mist

Friday, May 15, 2015

If you saw the card I posted yesterday, it was the third of four cards that I made on Wednesday. They are similar to the one you saw yesterday in the fact that I sponge coloured Whisper White and used the new Hostess stamp set "Best Thoughts" with heat embossing in gold this time.

I'm showing you today the two, starting with the Marina Mist card. I was asked by a friend to make a Birthday card for his wife. I asked what her favorite colour was, and he told me it was blue. So an idea came to mind and I was so happy with it that I knew using the new In Colour Mint Macaron would work beautifully wit this idea as well.

I'll show them together and then each individually.

Let's begin with the new colour, Mint Macaron, because I know you will want to see the new colour first. It is a lovely colour and one of my two favorites of the new In Colours.

  • Building the layers of colour I started with a bit of Pistachio Pudding in a few little areas, and then build up layers of Mint Macaron making some areas darker than others.
  • Using the Embossing Buddy over all the entire pieces I then stamped parts of the flowers from the new "Best Thoughts" Hostess stamp set all over.
  • Covered it with the gold embossing powder and heated it until it was all melted and shiny.
  • I then layered the pieces onto the Mint Macaron cardstock card base.

To better see the shiny gold embossing I had to hold the card so that the light could catch it for you to see.

I opted not to heat emboss on the inside of the card, but I might consider doing it another time.

The same process was used for the Marina Mist blue card using the "Because You Care" Occasions Catalogue Hostess stamp set for the sentiment.

I think my friend will love her blue card when her husband gives it to her on her birthday.

Hope you are inspired to try something like this on one of your next cards.

Thank you for stopping by, and happy stamping!
