White embossing on patterned papers and a giveaway

Just recently a lovely friend van the Hero Arts Flickr gallery sent me a gorgeous paper pad from Prima Marketing, called Botanical. I had been looking for these papers everywhere and found out that shipment from the USA had tripled in the bygone months! I had accepted not to buy them at such a high price and wait until I could find them nearer home. 



This is the first card I made with one of the papers and found out that white embossing  was really effective. I stamped the Postcard Tag stamp directly to the paper and also the Lupine flower in the middle. After embossing I stamped a couple of postmarks and adhered three dragonflies to the center of the flower.


Stamped directly to the patterned paper with the design block Silhouette stamp and found a stray butterfly in my scrap basket that just hit the spot. Stamped a sentiment, added some lace and my card is ready.



I stamped with the new Leafy Vine stamp from Hero Arts, direct to patterned paper.
I had just pictured how it would look on this paper and I really love this stamp. I punched out six circles on corresponding paper for each side of the card and attached in one go with a strip of double sided tape.
I found this design on Pinterest.

Now I have a giveaway:



This stamp and me don't go together, so I would rather give it to somebody who will use it and have fun with it. I will pick somebody on Tuesday per random org.I will also send one of the above cards with it.

have a lovely Sunday!
Jacqueline.

  16. The white embossing adds a crisp effect...beautiful over patterned paper.
    I can't imagine that you don't get along with that stamp..Have you tried inking only the bird or flowers with markers? if so, how did that turn out?
