CREATIVE INKING BLOG HOP - Creating with Color

Welcome to February's Creative Inking Blog Hop. This month's theme is "Creating with Color". I'm featuring the new Stampin' Blends - alcohol markers perfectly matched to the blend with Stampin' Up! papers and accessories. I'm also feature two of the new embossing folders.............

The "Cake Soiree" stamp set and "Sweet Cake" framelits are so detailed and perfect for embossing. I embossed with Silver embossing powder to bring out the details (and it makes coloring the images a lot easier as well). The embossing folder is the new "Simple Stripes" textured embossing folder. 

I used the new embossing folder "Petal Pair" on this card. Love the florals!

The sentiment is from "Better Together" (annual catalog) and a little strip of Berry Burst "Fresh Florals" designer paper adds to the inside of the card.  Here's a close-up of the detail on the cake stamp.

This stamp set is the "Petal Palette" set (stamps and framelits bundle) and is embossed with Copper embossing powder. The sentiment is also backed with Copper Foil. Using the same basic card layout also makes creating easy.

I love working with floral stamps - embossing powders in Silver and Copper really make them stand out and it's easier to color them.

I hope you enjoyed my post. Follow the hop by clicking on "next blog" below to see the what wonderful creation Lori Mueller has for us.  Go to the "prior blog" and see Colleen Vassos' great creations.
