For my card today, I used the new set, Folk Art Medallion. Its so, so pretty! I was drawn to the idea of being able to create a folksy looking chalkboard background. This set is so brilliantly designed that all the little pieces and parts face the right ways so you can create exactly that look! Yay!
The flower I added is Spiral Blossom Four from Spellbinders. Who can resist putting that flower on a card?I cannot.
The leaves are an interesting story and then they turned into a great card making tip!! I wanted to stamp the leaves in a beautiful mint green color (like in the paper pad I was using…). Sadly, amongst the hundreds of ink pads I own, there was nothing mint green. Then I got to thinking, because I was going to have mint green leaves! What would happen if I heat embossed the stamped image with clear embossing powder after it had been stamped onto the correct color of patterned paper? And look! It worked! The perfect color leaves!
And for the chance to win 5 stamp sets! CASE (Copy And Steal Everything) one of your favorite cards from the flower show and post a link (inlinkz) on Claire's blog.
