Joy Clair Blog Hop 2022


Hello crafty friends, I am happy to be joining Joy Claire Designs this month as a guest designer and participating in a fun blog hop and giveaway, celebrating their new release “ Springish Fiesta Collection 2022 stamps”. I chose a beautiful flower from the digital stamp set Always In Style and created a fabulous heat embossed card that can be used for Valentine’s Day, a birthday, or simply just because.

To begin I downloaded the floral from the Always in Style Set and printed it on watercolor paper. While the ink was still wet, I quickly used embossing powder covering the whole image. If you have not tried this it is easy to do. I then the image using my heat tool. I now had a digital image that was heat embossed.

I wanted to keep the flower light in colour as I had a plan to use hey dark background. I watercolored it using my Sennilier and Altenew watercolors I did add in a little pencil crayon just for some darker shadow. I fussy cut the images and set them aside.  For the background I cut a piece of black cardstock just a little shy a 4 ¼ x 5 1/2 I then used Whimsy stamps red rubber Vintage Wallpaper Background stamp. I simply used my embossing pad for a tone-on-tone look, and I loved it. I also did add a little peppery splatter for added interest.

As this card is an A2 sized card I created my base out of heavy 110 pd white cardstock. I adhered my black panel to the base I then adhered my flower and leaves to the black panel and selected a sentiment from the Tim Holtz label stickers.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have found some inspiration to heat emboss your digis, it makes such beautiful images and easy watercoloring. Stop by the Joy Clair store they have so many beautiful stamps and hop along on this blog hop to find more amazing inspiration.
