Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Thinking of You .  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from Maureen Rauchfuss’s fabulous blog.  Either way, you’re in the right place!


I was inspired to make this card when I was perusing Pinterest. I found a number of cards that had blurry, bright watercoloured backgrounds, combined with bold metallic embossing. While my card is a tad different, I was really pleased with how rich the delicate lines of the stamped images look when heat embossed in gold, especially with the yummy orangey-yellow-pink watercolouring. I am not normally really taken with orangey tones but found this combination, which I stole from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper, to be very pleasing.

Supplies used:

  • Stamps: –Inspiring Iris, Beautiful Moments
  • Card: –Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Whisper White, Gold Foil
  • Ink : – Versamark, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight Grapefruit Grove, Granny Apple Green
  • Tools: – Aqua Pen, Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder, Painted Labels Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies
  • Embellishments: – Gold embossing powder, Glitter Enamel Dots

I hope my card inspires you.  Please add a comment and let me know what you liked about it before clicking the next image to hop to Krissi Hannahs’s blog in the United States to see what fun ideas she has to share.
