Dandelion Wishes Thank Yous

When I think of the stamp sets that are my favourites from the Annual Catalogue, Dandelion Wishes comes to mind every time! Those dandelion seed heads with the seeds flying away in the wind just do it for me. And I thought they would look great embellished in a metallic powder on Basic Black. Needing some more thank you cards for customers, I used Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes as my card bases, which are 3 1/2" x 5", so a little smaller than a regular card size.

Take a closer look:

  • The smaller sized card means the Copper Foil that I used for the matte was 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" and I didn't need as much as for a regular sized card base (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). To save even more foil, you can use a Rectangle Stitched Framelit to cut away the inside of the matte and save it for something else, leaving you with a frame around the edge.
  • I set up the dandelion image from Dandelion Wishes and the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts on the same acrylic block. I used the Embossing Buddy lightly on the Basic Black cardstock piece so that I didn't get a lot of powder on it that would be hard to get off. It is important to use it though, because the Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder does tend to cling where it's not wanted if you don't.
  • The image and sentiment are inked up with Versamark Ink and stamped on the black cardstock. Then the Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder is sprinkled over the stamped areas and the excess is tapped off lightly. The Heat Tool is used to set the embossing powder until it melts and turns shiny.
  • The Basic Black panel is adhered to the copper foil matte and added to the notecard base. This is a very simple card to complete, but it packs a punch!

The next Paper Pumpkin kit will include some beautiful DistINKtive style stamps for photorealistic images. You'll want to sign up or reactivate your account by April 10 to get in on this one! I, for one, am really excited to get it!
