Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop - Floral Affection

Welcome back to the 2015-2016 Stampin' UP Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! 
I am so blessed that I get to create and inspire with these amazing Stampin' UP products and share with you all here for another wonderful year! Remember that every other Thursday, all 20 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Please keep hoppin' thru them all....you do not want to miss anyone of these amazing ladies!

This week we are showcasing our Artisan projects for the Stampin' UP Facebook Page this month. For this project, the team was to focus on the Love & Affection Stamp set, Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and/or New In-Colors. So I picked a combination of them all to use together!

I am totally loving this Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with the flower bunch!  I was able to use it twice on this project in different ways. First the background is the embossing folder thru the Big Shot several times in different angles. Then I took my bone folder and flattened the raised areas. Second, I can show you a step by step tutorial on how to color and emboss and color again.
I used a half of 8.5x11 piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. You use Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach Classic Ink Pads with Sponge Daubers.
 You want to first sponge on the Peekaboo Peach randomly.
 Then you want to sponge the Flirty Flamingo nearby.
 Next sponge on the Watermelon Wonder around the other two.
 Add another round of Peekaboo Peach to fill in the area.
 Now select a section of the coloring and emboss it with the Floral Affection TIEF.
You can see how some of the cardstock comes thru the color? No worries....
 
Color it in with more ink on the sponge daubers!
 Now cut it out with your Paper Snips. (Careful as it will tear!)
To finish off, sponge the edges of it. Ta-da!

Don't forget to add some Peekaboo Peach splatter with your Aqua Painter and Ink, some cut leaves with the Love & Affection Stamp Set in Old Olive Cardstock and Classic ink, a layer background DSP from the Playful Palette DSP Stack and some stamped letters from the Labeler Alphabet Photopolymer Stamp Set!
