Simon Says Stamp/Pinkfresh Studio STAMPtember 2021 Collaboration

Hello! It's time for the first of the special collaboration stamps for this year's STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamp - and it's a brand I am particularly fond of (biased a bit much I suppose?) - Pinkfresh Studio! This years exclusive collaboration set - You Are Next Level Amazing - is a beautiful floral set (with Pinkfresh, what else did you expect?) with some (as usual) beautiful and heartfelt sentiments!

While this image would be beautiful colored in, I decided to go for a soft and simple look, with some double layer embossing - one of my favorite techniques! I first die cut a small slimline panel using Essentials: Mini Slimline Essentials, then stamped the flower image in clear embossing ink. Before I added embossing powder, I stamped the sentiment using Detail Black ink, then sprinkled the clear embossing powder over the entire thing. The powder sticks to both inks, and creates one smooth embossed image.

Next, I blended some soft ink colors over the top - Lemon Whip, Peach Fuzz, and Coral Reef. Both stamped images resist the ink, so the florals magically appear as you blend ink over them! So fun and pretty!

I added a bit of white cardstock to mat the die cut image, then mounted with foam adhesive on an Ivory card base. Finished off with a some coordinating jewels in the flower centers, and tucked in the two corners.
