Be Patient with Yourself Card

Here's a card I made using the January Stamp of the Month, Bloom & Grow.

To achieve this look, I stamped the seed packet frame with Versamark on white paper and sprinkled it with clear embossing powder, then heating it to set.  I sponged ink over the top of this starting with Canary in the center and working in Juniper and Crystal Blue toward the outer edge. Because of the "resist" pattern created with the embossing, the design stayed white while the rest of the paper absorbed the color. Once this was completed, I stamped the sentiment with Black ink.

The paper, ribbon and dots used on this card are all from the new Chelsea Gardens collection.

As you can see from the image below, there are lots of great garden related phrases in this stamp set. Remember it is only available in January 2018. You can order for full price ($17.95) or get it discounted for just $5 when you place a $50 order.
