Sorry for the long gap between posts.  Life has been a little hectic lately (to say the least!)   I haven’t had any chance to make any cards lately, but I do have a few photos to show you from the last time I managed to spend a few hours on my card making.

One of the card sets that most caught my eye in this year’s Stampin’ Up! catalogue was the Wildflower Meadow set – and it has a matching embossing folder!  Who could resist?

It is such a beautiful set and the extra depth from the embossing means you can get an amazing effect from the simplest card.

This card was just stamped with Whisper White ink on Crumb Cake card stock:

I was thinking about how to ‘step it up a bit’ and decided to use my Stampin’ Write markets to add some highlights over the white ink:

The markers over the white ink gives a really lovely, soft effect.  Here’s a close up which gives you a better idea:


You can also use your markers to colour directly onto the stamp to give a multicolour effect:

Thanks for reading
