Regarding Dahlias Greeting Card

Stampin' Up! Regarding Dahlias Greeting Card

Stampin' Up! Regarding Dahlias stamp set Greeting card by Trude Thoman http://stampwithtrude.blogspot.com

If you like shiny cards, this card is for you! There is shine all over it from the silver foil paper, to the rhinestones and Fancy Foil Vellum.

I used watercolor paper for the dahlia stamp. First I heat embossed the flower with Encore silver ink and silver embossing powder. Then I sprayed the dahlia with water in a Stampin' Spritzer until the water pooled up in each embossed petal. Then I sprayed it with Rich Razzleberry reinker mixed with rubbing alcohol in a Stampin' Spritzer. If the sprayer doesn't deposit enough color the first time, rewet the flower and spritz again...or use an aqua painter to touch some of the color on a few water filled petals. Let it dry real well and then cut it out, sorry, no framelits to cut it out so get the scissors out and do some fussy cutting.

Before you put the reinker filled spritzer away, cut a piece of the cotton ribbon, spritz it with the water and then with the color. Let dry.

I don't recommend using the heat tool to dry the dahlia because it changes the appearance of the embossed image, removes some of the shine.

Here's a Stampin' Up! video that demonstrates the Stampin' Spritzers.

These are the items that I used to create this card. Click on any item to go to my online store.
