Katherine says,“As soon as I saw this stamp the idea of the sunset colour scheme popped into my head. The stamp ‘Chase your dreams’ seemed appropriate for this theme.”

 

Stamps Katharine used…

Mama Makes: Mama X Charlotte Floral Corner; Floral Circle; Floral Sentiments

 

Other materials…

White mixed media card

WOW! Embossing Powder: Super Fine Metallic Gold

Distress Oxide: Abandoned Coral; Squeezed Lemonade

VersaFine: Onyx Black; Smokey Grey

 

Step-by-step…Sunburst Floral Card

 

 

 

1 Cut the white card to 10x10cm. Wipe over it using an anti static pad, then stamp with the Floral Circle stamp in embossing ink. Cover in Fine Gold embossing powder and heat.

2 Cut a circle to fit the centre of the embossed image, and use this as a mask. Using the Abandoned Coral ink, blend colour out about a cm from the masked area then blend in the Squeezed Lemonade towards the edges of the design. It should resemble a sun set.

3 Back the embossed card on a piece of 11x11cm dark grey or black card. This helps to make the card really stand out.

 
 

4 On a square blank card, stamp the Floral Corner stamp with grey ink, in diagonal corners.

5 Using the Floral Sentiment set I stamped the words “Chase your dreams” in the centre of the circle with black ink.

6 On the back of the embossed circle add some 3D foam pads and stick to the centre of the card.

 
 
 

To finish the project: Lightly buff the embossed image with a tissue or cotton pad to bring out the gold and take off any excess ink. This really makes it shine.
