Flower Fest Embossing Powder Card!

When I first saw the Flower Fest stamp set, I didn't love it. I bought it anyway and now I'm so glad I did. I love this Card!!!! It simple but so pretty!!!

Flower Fest - Clear-Mount Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!
#122278(W) $33.95 or #122280(C) $24.95

It coordinates with the punches I already own and it's amazing to emboss with. Stampin' Up has come out with three colors of embossing powder. Tangerine tango #123106 $5.95, Melon Mambo #123223 $5.95 and Wild Wasabi #123224 $5.95. You need to buy them all! The powder is so fine that it embosses even the smallest detail.

I stamped the largest flower with VersaMark ink on Confetti White card stock and embossed it with the Tangerine Tango Stampin' Emboss Powder.
Then, I stamped the leaf image with VersaMark ink and embossed it with Wild Wasabi Stampin' Emboss powder. Finally, the Rose was stamped with VersaMark ink and the image was embossed with Melon Mambo Stampin' Emboss powder.

The flowers were colored in with a Aqua Painter filled with water and ink from the Top of the classic ink pads in the same color.

Quick Tip: Squeeze your large Classic Ink pad. Open it up and you will see a pool of ink on the inside of the lid of the stamp pad. Pick the color up with an Aqua Painter and color the image in. You can also buy a reinker and place a drop on some plastic (I use the lid of an empty button container) and color your image.

The idea for this card came from the monthly Stampin' Success magazine we get for being a demonstrator with Stampin'Up. I would love for you to join my team!!!!!
