Today I have 2 cards to share with you today. Both are using the same stamp with the same technique but by changing the color embossing powder how completely different the results are. When using the clear embossing powder you get a soft subtle image and by using black you get a much bolder image.

Finished cards measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded
- Step 1 - Trim White Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4", fold in half for a vertical side fold card (A2)
- Step 2 - Create a Distress Oxide background using heavy weight cardstock. Add colors Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves to a craft mat. Spray with water. Dip the cardstock into the activated inks. Heat set it with a heat tool. Repeat the process until desired effect. Let dry.
- Step 3 - Diecut 2 Double Stitched Rectangles using the Distress Oxide background created to create a frame. Stamp Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Day sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink on the center piece. Adhere the center piece to the front of the card using clear double sided adhesive. The frame will be adhered using foam tape.
- Step 4 - For a soft finish - Stamp Waffle Flower Autumn Time Sunflower Image using Versamark using watercolor paper, sprinkle clear embossing powder and heat set it with a heat tool. Color image in using any watercolor medium. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush. For a bold finish - Stamp Waffle Flower Autumn Time Sunflower Image using Versamark using watercolor paper, sprinkle black embossing powder and heat set it with a heat tool. Color image in using any watercolor medium. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush. Adhere to card using foam tape.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the same stamp and technique but by changing the color of the embossing powder how different both looks are. Both are pretty but it all depends on what you want. Soft or bold. This card can be used for any occasion by changing sentiment, image and colors. Below are links for all products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
