Secret Garden stamped and embossed

Posted by on January 29, 2013 in Uncategorized | 4 comments

I found a beautiful card by Karen Barber and was inspired to create this one:

I stamped the flower images from “Secret Garden” in Versamark on Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I used a Sponge Dauber to add Elegant Eggplant, Riding Hood Red and More Mustard inks (just rub in a circular motion, the embossed images will resist the inks and stay white).  The leaves are stamped in Garden Green on Crumb Cake too.  All the images are die-cut with the Secret Garden Framelits and layered onto the doily and embossed cardstock.

Ink:  Versamark, Elegant Eggplant, Riding Hood Red, More Mustard

  1. Brenda- This is stunning! I didn’t buy the Secret Garden bundle, because I have so many flower sets, but now you have me wanting to order it. LOL!!! Thanks for sharing:)

  2. How clever to show the doily in such a fashion, especially layered on the elegant Lacy Brocade EF. A stunning card indeed.

  3. Thanks Loralee! I really like those little doilies 🙂 They’re pretty thin too so they don’t add extra bulk to a card 🙂

  4. Thanks Julie! I too have a TON of flower sets so it needs to be something special for me to buy another one. I really like this set. You should google Karen Barber – her work is stunning!
