A base and shade stamp, solid stamp is base and outline stamp is shade, gives you so many color opportunities! Throughout the month, you will see many of options and color schemes and more using this stamp set.
Here are the first two --
Using one of the patterns from La Vie En Rose as the background base, a piece of black cardstock embossed with the Confetti Stars embossing folder are the perfect complement to the stamped rose from Beloved Bouquet.
Stamping the base of the flower in Poppy and the leaves in Fern, the outline of both where stamped in black for a dramatic effect.
The zip strip (the little 1/2 top piece of each pattern sheet in a Close To My Heart paper collection) created the perfect sentiment.
Add a little rose and tips of leaves on the envelope. Someone receiving this card would know it is something made just for them.
This showcases the emboss resist technique - emboss the outline in fine clear embossing powder and color it using the watercolors, what was embossed will resist the color giving a glossy white outline. The leaf was created the same way.
Add the stamped sentiment in the middle of the cutout oval and a little black shimmer trim and black butterflies.
A cute Valentine for someone special in your life.
And again, the inside and the envelope.
