Have you started to work on a card idea and then relised you used the wrong product. Well, that happened to me yesterday. Have all week been wanting to make this card idea I had and sat down to make it and instead of using the White Embossing Powder I used the Clear Embossing Powder.
So what do you do? Throw it out and start again or go with the flow and work out what to do now. I decided to go with the flow and worked with what I had. So its different to what I was going to do and I think it looks great……What do you think, do you like it?
You may not recognise the the stamp set….this is a sneak peak to what is coming in the new Mini Catalogue. It is an all over floral design stamp and its very big, so don’t be afraid to cut it down to suite your card size.
How did I achieve this look.

What did I do…
- Place Card front piece in stamparatus, position stamp of top and close plate down so stamp adheres.
- Wipe card front with Embossing Buddy. Coat stamp with the VersaMark.
- Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder over the top of Card front and tip off the excess powder. Heat with heat gun until melted.
- With a sponge lightly rub over the embossed area with the Delicata Ink- Golden Glitz. Don’t worry if the coverage is not even as this just adds to the texture. Buff card front with a tissue to remove any ink sitting on the embossing.
- Trim the Card front down to 1o x 14cm
- Whisper White strip stamp your sentiment in Blackbeyy Bliss, I used the Happy Birthday from the Happy Birthday to You stamps.
- Gently swipe the edges of Whisper White strip through the Delicata Ink – Golden Glitz – You will need to let this dry before handling.
- Adhere the card from onto Card Base with Multi Purpose Glue and the Whisper White strip with Dimensionals
- On inside of card adhere the Whisper White Insert. If you wish you can stamp floral strip down the right hand side of insert before adhering into card. I did this by lining up the cardstock in the Stamparatus so then only the edge was stamped.
I hope you have enjoyed this card and like me, I hope you find that not all mistakes are mistakes but just another idea wanting to get onto paper.
