Succulent Stamp and Butterflies -Bold and Bright

Newly released and boldly gorgeous- JustRite has a new large cling stamp that has the full coverage needed for a card.  The size of this stamp is 4"x5.25" so it fits on an A2 card nicely. 

Background stamps are also great to use for texture on cards, tags, ATC's , scrapbook pages, mixed media projects and so much more.  

My background stamp is from JustRite PaperCraft Succulent - Background Cling Stamps  and is great for experimenting with embossing and inking.  This card actually was easy to make.  

Here are my quick steps 
Step. 1 - I stamped the image onto " Specialty Stamping Paper for Inks"  using Clear Embossing Ink and the  Misti Stamping Tool ( Most Incredible Stamping Tool ).   This helps provide a clear and crisp image.  I am not looking for a distressed image - I really am desiring a crisp clean image.   For this reason, I also did not choose to use distress embossing ink. 

Step. 2 -  I coated the specialty paper with clear  super fine embossing powder (white embossing powder works nicely here as well).   Heat and set with a heat embossing tool/heat gun

 Tip - With products like embossing powders, glitter and beads, I find that clean up is much easier when using a craft tray to help catch all the extra product.  I'm not really great at sweeping and vacuuming so I like to avoid that one task when possible. 

Step. 3 -  Pick some Distress inks and start blending.   I was able to blend gorgeous color combinations on the specialty stamping paper using various Distress Inks and blending tools.

Here is a list of the Distress Inks I used:
Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Rusty Hinge
Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Vintage Photo
I added a small sentiment using JustRite's Small Oval Wishes Stamp set.  This collection has a great variety of all purpose sentiments that seem to cover most occasions.  They are small sentiments that can be added and not overwhelm your beautiful artwork on the card.  

I stamped the word "HOPE" with black ink and covered with clear embossing powder (followed by a blast of the heat gun to set the embossing powder). to give is a crisp clean finish. 

Thanks for stopping here to look and share your time with me.  I appreciate this a great deal.
