Embellished CASE

CASE from fellow demonstrator, Mary Brown

Hi Stamping Friends.  There are times, when the mojo just isn't working.  This was one of those times.  But there are others out there that have great mojo....and I'm so thankful they are willing to share.  The top card was a CASE (copy and share everything) from fellow demonstrator Mary Brown.  I love the way the flowers from Flower Fest turned out, as well as the simplicity of the card.  One problem, though....I can't do simple.  So, I stepped it up a bit and added a marina mist and whisper white background.  I also added a 3-D flower and pearl.  Both are pretty, don't you think?

To make the stamped flowers, stamp with white craft ink, and heat emboss with white embossing powder.  Then take a sponge dauber and lightly daub with marina mist in the centers (also sponge around the bashful blue background).  To make the 3-D flowers, punch out two Fancy Flowers in bashful blue and one center flower in the triple blossom punch.  Sponge the edges with marina mist, gently spray with water, and shape (curl petals using the paper piercing tool or something similar).  Heat the flowers until dry, and they harden and look like suede.  So easy ... so pretty.
