Embossed Blooms

I love bright colors--when designing. I'm just drawn to bold colors as I was drawn to the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper. I really think my mom used some of these patterns when I was a kid to sew my clothes. I just adore them. 

When I first sat down to design with the products from the Happiness Blooms Suite, I knew the 2018-2020 In Colors were going to be my focus. Awesomely, I had ordered the 2018-2020 In Color Embossing package earlier in the fall, and had yet to use it. I was psyched to realize that these bold colors would "Pop" when embossed on Night of Navy Cardstock. 

Here's my first card:

I combined the Itty Bitty Birthdays with the Bloom by Bloom to stamp this card. To create the multicolored image, I stamped each part in Versamark and embossed in the color I wanted before I stamped the next image in Versamark and embossed in a different color. Static is an issue here in Wisconsin this time of year, and I used a paint brush to wipe away any stray powder. When I used the embossing buddy on it, the cornstarch within left a white trail, so I just tried to be careful.  I used the new (and AWESOME) Stitched Rectangle Framelits to make the frames. I used dimensionals (of course) to pop these panels up. 

The final touch was adding an embossed image and sentiment to the inside! 

My second card is what we made at Stampin' Celebrations. We used the technique--layered embossing- to get the dynamic colors on this card:

This card really is rectangular with 90 degree angles. My photography skills were lacking on this one. But, the card is still very cool. The inner rectangle panel allows room for the background paper to peek through. The rectangle frame was "leftovers" from when I made 12 of the card above.  

For the flowers, I used the same- versamark- embossing powder- heat emboss--next stamp in versamark-embossing powder--heat emboss-- next stamp routine, but I also stamped in versamark on top of my already embossed area to layer the colors. What a fun technique! 

I loved designing and experimenting to create these cards!  If you are interested in recreating these or cards like it, there are links below to my store. 

Happy Stamping! Sara
