Papertrey Ink Blog Hop: A True Friend is You Friend

I am constantly reminded how grateful I am for my friends!


This is an unusual color combo for me but I would def use this card base idea in the future! This is my first time using my Garden of Life and Fillable Frame #11 stamp sets. I've also never used anything out of Beyond Basic Borders other then the main tree-like image.

First, I heat embossed the flower swirls (Garden of Life) with Kaleidoscope embossing powder, which gives them that glittery look. Then I stamped the solid flowers with Versamark Dazzle: Frost ink.

Considering that I distress inked (Peeled Paint) the Simply Chartreuse strip (stamped with Beyond Basic Borders), I should have distress inked the Plum Pudding card base as well. Oh well.

The Mat Stack 4 layer was die cut on Dark Chocolate cardstock and then "sugared" using a Xyron and glitter. The Fillable Frame #11 is Summer Sunrise cardstock stamped with Terracotta Tile ink. The sentiment is Dark Chocolate ink.

Oh no, you didn't need to distress ink the plum pudding - it adds a lot to your accent piece! Great job using so many of your unused stamps on one card! And I love the wild color combo with the glitter - fun!
