Today I want to share another Hello card with you, to create it I used a fun new embossing folder and a recently learned technique I used in a new way.

The embossing folder comes in a set of 2 -Hello and Thank you in multiple languages. Thanks and Hello

In this photo, you can see close up the fonts and languages of the embossing folder, and a technique that I am calling alcohol coloring (similar but not quite exactly like water coloring). So much fun though.

To create the floral element of this card I used the Hand Penned Petals bundle. I used our watercolor markers to “ink” up the stamp using Polished Pink and Old Olive. I chose these colors because there are also Stampin’ blends available in these colors. I stamped the image onto vellum cardstock and let it dry naturally so as not to warp the vellum. I then colored in the open areas of the petals and leaves with the Stampin’ blends in Polished Pink and Old Olive.

The next step is a delicate one, because you are going to use just the tiniest amount of 91% isopropyl alcohol to bleed the area colored in with the blends. The easiest way to do this is to use one of our water painters filled with the isopropyl alcohol instead of water.

I let this step dry naturally as well. Then using a Daffodil Delight dark blend I colored the centers of the flowers and die cut both the vellum piece as well as a basic white layer beneath, I used multipurpose glue to stick the vellum layer to the white base, but you can also use adhesive sheets before you die cut.

Happy Stamping and Coloring, I will be back with more hello cards soon
