Hello Crafty Friends!!! Welcome to the Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop! I’ve created a couple mini cards using the Gratitude stamp set where I’ve gold embossed the images and used watercolors to fill in with color. These are great to create in batches for the Thanksgiving table.
Have fun with your watercolors and allow them to seep into the grooves of the embossed image. You can’t go wrong!
I’ve filmed a video of how I created these little placards which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

SUPPLIES FOR SHARI’S CARD:
Hi all! Kristina here. Have you all seen the November 2017 card kit yet? It might be my favorite kit so far! This kit is packed with TONS of awesome things for making cards. It even includes a 6×8 stamp set–a first for a Simon card kit!
One of the things I love about the new Kind Flowers stamp set is the large floral image (the stamp set is available outside of the kit as well). I decided to make that the focal point of my card. I first stamped the image in Barely Beige ink (and left the stamp positioned in my MISTI tool) and colored it with Copic Markers. Then I put the cardstock back into my MISTI and stamped the image again using Clear embossing ink and applied Simon’s Antique Gold embossing powder over the top. Then I heat set it.
Why would I wait to heat emboss until after the coloring was complete? Because the ink in Copic Markers will eat away at embossing powder. It dissolves the embossing powder and it can potentially ruin the tips of your markers. Because of this, it’s best to color first and then do any heat embossing.
I finished off the card by cutting out the floral image and adhering it over the top of some gold foil striped patterned paper. I also stamped the individual “kind” stamp from the stamp set and gold heat embossed it. Then I used the coordinating die from the kit to cut it out and pop it up over the top of the floral image.
I hope you enjoy today’s video! Thanks for stopping by! You can pick up the November 2017 Card Kit HERE, or you can subscribe to receive this kit and future kits automatically.
