Always Thinking of You

I'm really enjoying all the fantastic ideas in the quarterly Demonstrator magazine Stampin' Success. I'm still making my way through it CASE-ing quite a few of the cards.

This one was tricky but fun to make and quite different. I've never done this before so when I saw something similar in the magazine I was keen to try it.

The original card was made with strips of different coloured card stock to form a rainbow and they ran vertical up along a landscape card. I decided to flip mine around and have mine running left to right and just use 3 colours on a white base.
I'm really loving the colour combo too.
This card is a great way to use up scrap cardstock and I definitely need some practise cutting my strips to equal size.

Then it was just a matter of heat embossing the stamped image over the top, which can be a challenge in itself because I used Versamark in with clear embossing powder.
TIP: Make sure you use the embossing buddy first before embossing.
I completely forgot that step so I had random powder over my card front which we difficult to wipe off.
Always do the embossing step before adhering that piece to the card, that way if the embossing doesn't work, you don't waste a card base.

Ive just finished the card off with a simple sentiment from the same stamp set as the flower and added some thread and some clear epoxy shapes to mimic dew drops on the flower.

Im quite happy with how this card turned out and I would definitely do a few things differently next time.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project today.
A full list of items used to make this card features below and all items are available from my online store.

Until next time
Happy Stamping! (tap tap tap)
