Simple ink blending, then Heat embossing with black embossing powder. Make sure to let your blended distress oxides dry really well before you heat emboss. Here is how the card started, mostly ink splotches….
Since they are a little thicker than a standard embossing folder they run through your die cutting machine a little differently. The sandwich to use with the Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting Machine from bottom to top: Platform Plate, Cut and Emboss Folder with cardstock inside and one Cutting Plate.

Welcome to the Crafty Friends blog hop. Today we are sharing some fabulous Gina K Designs products and there is a shopping coupon code below!
Have you heard of the Gina K wreath builder? Do you have it? You probably will want it soon, it’s SO MUCH FUN and the end results are gorgeous!
I have the original wreath bundle, but there are lots of options to choose from. You definitely need a stamp position tool like a Misti for this. I started by stamping all the wreaths in a bunch of different colors. It takes only little bit of practice to get the hang of the tool and its super easy! But it is a lot of stamping! A lot.
Use ink cubes if you have them so there is less ink all over the Misti cover.
The wreath design creates a square image based on the directions. I like A2 cards so I created most of my wreaths on a 5.5 x 5.5 square cardstock so I could trim it down in different sizes and positions on the cards. Bonus: there is a mega wreath builder to accomodate more sizes!
Patience. Patience. and more Patience. I had to stamp most of my images twice and it took a few times to get the center circle the right size for the sentiments in the set. No worries, I have lots of sentiments. And in cardmaking there are no mistakes, just creative opportunities!
Don’t forget Nuvo Drops and embellishments! I added lots and lots of Nuvo drops to these cards. And rhinestones too. shhhhh, some hide mistakes!

The awesome brick wall background is a stencil. And its so easy to use! I created this and several other brick wall backgrounds at the same time so I had a bunch on hand. you may remember the gray one from the Birthday Rose card last month.
And dont’t forget about reduced shipping in February!
Sharing the Floral Cluster from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store today. I needed a few quick birthday cards and did not have time to sit down and color them. Guess What? The Floral Cluster looks great in black and white!
I paired the floral image with a simple birthday “Celebrate” from the All Occasion Sentiment Set 2 .
I glimmered gold on the black in a random order. Then glimmered gold onto white, die cut and layered. So so pretty!

It is so rainy and dreary here in PA, so I decided to make a POP of yellow card!
I simply stamped the flower all over the white cardstock and colored with these copics: C!, C0, Y13, Y15 and Y19. The sentiment is heat embossed on black cardstock, using white embossing powder.
