Viva Decor Meets Stampendous

First of all I stamped the orchid using Stampendous Jumbo Cling Orchid stamp (CRS5032) onto a white piece of card and embossed the orchid with Stampendous aged black embossing enamel (FREG026). Using a dusting motion I colour tinted the orchid using Viva Decor's my paper world paper soft colours dark carmine red 402, Sunny yellow 202, and orange 300. Once I achieved the shading I wanted I cut out the orchid using some tweezer scissors. I inked up the word stamp from Viva Decor's my paper world silicone stamp set Happy Birthday (400301700) with Viva Decor's 3D Stamp paint using a mix of  carmine red 912 and copper 904 which i mixed on my heat proof craft mat. I stamped the image 3 times and on the 3rd stamp I masked off the bottom of the scalloped card so as not to get any words on the edge. I layered the orchid onto the card using some Pinflair Glue Gel.

In the version below I used vellum paper instead of white card stock, and instead of the black embossing enamel I used Stampendous shabby white embossing enamel (FREG027).This is a quick and easy way for all you who do parchment craft to colour tint your parchment. I used the Pinflair Glue gel on the back of the orchid in the areas with the most embossing powder, and instead of it being raised like the first version I spread the glue gel thinly. As a result the background words can be seen through the orchid.

Baby cards

Today's make is two baby cards . I have used Viva-Decor 3d stamp paint rose metallic and Paper soft-colour (rose) from my paper world collection . For the baby boy card I have used 3d stamp paint light blue and paper soft colour light blue . I have used the Viva-Decor silicone Birth stamp set for this project.The 3D stamp paint gives a lovely sparkly, three dimensional finish in contrast to the subtle appearance of the paper soft colour.  The most difficult part of the project was choosing which of the stamps to use as there is such a varied and appealing choice in this set.
