Hi! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I’m back with 2 cards made with the same stamp and Nuvo Shimmer Powder, but a different design. When I saw this Mandala stamp from Woodware I immediately fell in love with it and so I made multiple cards, hence the part 1 in the blog title.
To start, I prepped watercolor paper with an anti static powder tool. This prevents embossing powder to stick in places you don’t want. With my stamping tool, I stamped the image on the paper with VersaMark clear ink. As it was watercolor paper, I stamped it twice to make sure I got a good impression. Then I coated the cards with white pearl embossing powder and heat set it.
And now the magic starts. Of course since the embossing was white on white, you couldn’t really see the design. I started distributing the Nuvo Shimmer Powder over the paper and activated it by spraying water over it. This revealed the stamped image beautifully.
For the first card, I kept the design quite simple as I really liked the fully stamped image. So for this one, I only added red colored cardstock to the card base on which I adhered my watercolor piece with foam tape. For the sentiment, I white heat embossed it on a piece of vellum and glued in on the card with mat medium.
For the second card, I die cut the center of the card, glued it on a red colored cardstock and popped it up with some foam tape. To finish it, I die cut ‘hello’ from the same red colored cardstock and from white 2 times as well. I glued them on top of each other to create some dimension. And that finishes the card!
