The first card I’m sharing is starring the Majestic Peony stamp set. This image is stunning! I stamped my image in embossing ink on Arches Cold Press Watercolor paper and heat embossed with Champagne Embossing Powder. To stamp the image, I used my Misti Stamping Tool and the Misti Corners.

I colored in my image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I really enjoyed coloring this image and love how well the colors blended on this card stock. The colors I used are Violet, Deep Blue, Light Green, and Green.

I heat embossed a sentiment from the Happy Fall set onto Black Onyx card stock with white embossing powder and trimmed to a thin strip. Then added to my card front with black foam squares.

The Happy Fall stamp set has many large sentiments on it but I fell in love with the skinny sentiments. For my next card, I ink blended a piece of white card stock using Walnut Stain, Rusty Hinge, and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink. After it was dry, I heat embossed a leaf from the Layered Leaf Prints in Gold Embossing Powder.

I attached my small ink blended panel to a white note card with craft foam for dimension. The small sentiment is from the Happy Fall stamp set. I stamped in embossing ink onto Black Onyx card stock and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

Super clean and simple but very striking!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I’ll have more for you tomorrow!
