Hello readers and happy Wednesday! Today really is a great day to "enjoy today!" The sun is finally shining bright and it's supposed to be 80 degrees here in Massachusetts! Despite the fact that I was walking into work this morning, it really was a beautiful day already by 7 am! So. . . if you follow me on Instagram and Instastories, last weekend I accidentally heat embossed a black piece of cardstock with black embossing powder and what I thought was going to be meh turned out gorgeous! I had intended on dipping the black cardstock into my container of silver embossing powder, but was interrupted by a mob of hungry cats (also called a "clowder" - fun fact) and then the dipping went awry. Oh, if all of my accidents turned out so well! This was serendipity. A fortunate accident.
Also a great chick flick starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale by the way! : )
Consider yourself warned that ALL future heat embossing might be black on black. . .
*Full supply list at end of post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Basic Black cardstock. I cut a sheet of Basic Black cardstock measuring 5 1/4" x 4" and heat embossed it in Black embossing powder using the retired French Script stamp. Hello happy accident! Using the Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched dies, I cut a rectangle out of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Memento Black ink on the lower left corner of this scalloped rectangle and then adhered it to the card base with Snail Permanent Adhesive. Using White Stampin' Emboss powder, I heat embossed two of the orchids from the Climbing Orchid stamp set on Daffodil Delight cardstock and die cut them on my Big Shot using the coordinating Climbing Orchid dies. I stamped two small flower stems in Tuxedo Memento Black ink on the white cardstock and adhered the orchid petals on to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative weekend!
