Fabulous Florets

Sometimes the best things come in simple packages, and this card is a perfect example of that.  I CASE'd this card from what is obviously a talented demonstrator, but unfortunately I don't know who that is...if you do please let me know so that I can give them credit.

Stamp Sets: 
Fabulous Florets, Petite Pairs
Card Stock:  Confetti Cream, Early Expresso
Craft Ink:  Cherry Cobbler Craft Ink (great for heat embossing)
Punches:  Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch
Accessories:  Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Powder Pals, Gold Glow Smooch Spritz, Color Catcher, Dimensionals

  1. Whenever you are heat embossing the Embossing Buddy is a must, it helps keep your embossing powder stick only where it is supposed to.
  2. When heat embossing you can used Versamark or Craft Ink, I used the Craft Ink.  Both of these inks take a little bit to dry so the embossing powder sticks to it.  Classic ink dries to quickly and the embossing powder won't stick.
  3. The Heat Tool gets very very very hot, so be careful!
  4. When using the Smooch Spritz you need to do it in an encolsed space so you won't get the Spritz all over every thing; I used the Color Catcher.
  5. The closer the spritz bottle is to the card the more concentrated the Spritz will be, the farther away the more spread out.
  6. When using the Smooch Spritz you may need to clean the nozzle before spraying because it can get clogged up, and be sure to shake the bottle well.

That's all for today, and please STAY COOL today.
