Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Hello Friend Wishes Stamp Set. I've created a set of rainbow colored hello themed cards using the embossed resist technique. I love the bold and bright Distress Ink colors.
I die cut several rectangles and frames from smooth white cardstock using the Dotted Detail Frame Die. I stamped the large scripty "Hello Friend" greeting from the Hello Friend Wishes Stamp Set with the Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Ink. I used the MISTI for precision stamping each time. I cleaned the stamp really well and stamped the greeting again using Versamark Ink, then I slightly shifted the paper and stamped the greeting again with Versamark Ink. I heat embossed the greetings with clear embossing powder.
I applied Distress Ink over each of the embossed greetings using Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch Inks. I placed the Simon Says Stamp Swirls and Dots Stencil over each background for a tone on tone look. The Versamark Ink and embossing powder around the greeting give a great dimensional effect to the large greeting.
I stamped additional phrases from the Hello Friend Wishes Stamp Set on black cardstock strips using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I adhered the embossed resist panel to the center of a top fold card base and adhered the Dotted Detail frame around each panel before adhering a black embossed greeting strip along the bottom of each panel.
Each card was finished with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Hero Arts pearl gems and tiny, tiny clear gemstones.
