I needed to get my embossing powder fix this morning so I came up with this project using the Stampin’ Up Set Embrace Life and some clear embossing powder, love that stuff, lol. I also love pink and brown together so I decided to use that color combo and add a bit of a twist by using Apricot Appeal in the background center to add a glow to the project. Hope you like it.
Let’s get started.
|Stamps: Stampin’ Up Embrace Life|
|Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Apricot Appeal|
|Ink: Stampin’ Up Basic Black, Apricot Appeal, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip|
|Accessories: Sponges, Stampin’ Up Markers, White Gel Pen, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Copper Brad, Versamark Marker, Clear embossing powder and a heat gun|
Stamped the flowers around the edge of the circle using Basic Black ink.
Used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the flower in the center using Basic Black ink.
Colored some of the flower petals on the small flowers and the entire large flower with a Pretty in Pink marker.
Added a bit of Cameo Coral marker to all of the flowers.
Went over the large flower’s center and the edges of the large flower again with the Pretty in Pink marker to get a graduation of color in the flower.
Colored over all of the little flowers and the entire large flower with a Versamark marker and heat embossed all of them at once using fine detail clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Using a circular motion I sponged Apricot Appeal ink in the center of the circle.
Sponged Creamy Caramel ink around the outside of the circle, not covering the Apricot Appeal ink entirely.
Sponged Close to Cocoa ink around the edge of the circle, not covering the Creamy Caramel ink entirely.
Added Chocolate Chip ink at the very edge of the card stock using a sponge.
Stamped the leaves with Creamy Caramel ink.
Colored the leaves in with an Apricot Appeal marker.
Added an outline of Close to Cocoa marker on the bottom of the leaves.
Added a white highlight to the tops of the leaves and the center of the large flower.
Adhered the main image panel to a Chocolate Chip 5″ square panel and sponged Basic Black at each corner of the Chocolate Chip Panel.
Added a 5 1/8″ square panel of Apricot Appeal card stock and a Copper Brad in the center of the large flower.
Here is the finished card measuring 5 1/8″ square.
I hope this tutorial has inspired you to use a warm color in the center of your next project to create a glow.
