Simon Says Stamp | Background Stamping with Thankful Flowers. Take 2!

Hello, friends. In my previous post, I mentioned I wanted to try a different approach to the background I had made and while I had some free time this weekend I went ahead and colored another card. I used the exact same supplies, but the end result ended up being dramatically different by switching up just 2 things.

CARD DETAILS

I used the same floral cluster from the Thankful Flowers stamp set, but instead of stamping it in black ink I heat embossed it in Antique Gold embossing powder. This one thick made a world of a difference and already significantly changed the look of the card.

Next, I used the same colors of Copic markers and colored the flowers and leaves in. I used YG01YG03G94, and G99 markers to color the leaves. Next, I used R20R22 and R24 markers to color some of the flowers red; Y35Y13 and Y11 markers to color some flowers yellow; RV34RV11, and RV00 to color some flowers pink; and finally the last flower was colored using violets, BV11BV00, and BV000.

I know a lot of you are worried about coloring next to heat embossing. Watch THIS video tutorial for a workaround. I hope you’ll give it a go!

With the flowers colored I used the G99 marker, the darkest green in my collection, and colored the background in. WOW! What a variation that made. it transformed a simple floral card to a dramatic and eye-catching design.

I added a heat embossed birthday sentiment, the sentiment comes from the Birthday Word Mix 1 set from Simon Says Stamp, and called this card done!

    1. Liked the first one but after seeing this card I couldn’t believe those two little changes made such a difference. Fabulous card.

    1. They are both beautiful but this one (with the darker background) is stunning!!!!

    1. HOLY COW! I can’t believe the difference this makes and that it’s the same design!!!! Absolutely stunning on black. Stay health and thank you, Yana.

    1. Oooooo! So dramatic! Love this one best! Love that pop of blue!

    1. I like both cards but this one is definitely my favorite. Thanks for sharing both of them!

    1. Girl, seriously, you ROCKED this card. I absolutely love black card stock and this card is out of this world. Fabulous job, Yana!

    1. Yana, with this one you had to color over/with the already embossed images didn’t you? Because you had to move the image in order to restamp it…. Or did you stamp it once, color it, emboss it, then stamp it again, color it, emboss it, and then move it? I guess I just figured it out — or at least the way I’ll have to do it because I am not as skilled with copics as you are — yet. 🙂
