I stamped this simple Thank You card with Stampin’ Up!’s Just Believe stamp set. The secret ingredient to create this shadow card is the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig which allows you to stamp precisely where you want to.
I started by stamping the center circle in Sahara Sand ink, then, using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I lined up the circles on either side.
I stamped the flowers in Sahara Sand ink first. Then I inked up the stamp again first with Versamark ink and then with Midnight Muse before stamping slightly to the left of the first using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to create the shadow.
I use the Versamark ink first so that I can emboss the image with clear embossing powder. The Versamark ink keeps the ink wet long enough for the embossing powder to stick so it can then be heated for that great classy, embossed look.
In this picture above you can really see the embossing. After I embossed the flowers, I used a Blender Pen and a little Midnight Muse ink from the pad to just touch up a couple of tiny spots where my stamped ink didn’t cover fully. The blender pen and ink provided great, complete coverage.
And did you notice the rhinestones? <3 Love, love, love! I hadn’t planned to use rhinestones, but I couldn’t help it. I’ve been thinking I need to start “Rhinestones Anonymous”. I want to put them on everything!! And when I discovered that using the tip of the Piercing Tool to pick the Rhinestones up and place them right where I want them – well, it just fed my addiction!
