Technique Junkies WWDB Challenge – Get Well

Hello stampers!  Here we are at week 2 of What We Do Best (WWDB) challenge.  This week’s challenge is to make a Get Well card, and a coordinating envelope, using Technique Junkies stamps.  Play along!  We are giving away a $50 gift card to Technique Junkies.  We sell more than just stamps, so get creative!

Today’s card uses Flourished Floral, Dancing Dandelions and Grand Greetings.  If you follow me, I think you would agree that Flourished Floral is my most-used TJ stamp.

Card Details

The darkest cardstock was cut in half horizontally and one piece was embossed in a light purple and one piece embossed in a dark purple, using Dancing Dandelions.

A ribbon was wrapped around the card to hide the merging of the two pieces of cardstock.  Flourished Floral was coloured with Copic markers.  Grand Greetings comes in a set of f stamps, and using just the words “Get Well” from one of the sentiments, I stamped the words out in the same colour as my embossed background.

Tips

  • Having five purple and pink embossing powders, I wanted to test how the colours looked on my dark cardstock.  The colour of the powder is not reflective of how it heat embosses when used on coloured cardstock.  Stamping out my Dancing Dandelions background, I created a test piece.  In doing so, I placed my embossing powders in a row and sprinkled a little bit of each powder over the Versamark in a horizontal fashion.  When heat embossed, a variety of pretty colours appear.  I chose the colours that would coordinate with my project.
  • When using Copic markers, or other markers, on my envelope, I place a scrap piece of cardstock on the inside of the envelope to stop it from bleeding onto the back of the envelope.
