Video: Morning Glory Hugs

Hi everyone! I’m back with another card and video using our new Morning Glory Border and Brushed Hugs stamp sets.

I started off by stamping our Morning Glory Border stamp on watercolor paper (Strathmore 300 Series Cold Press) with our Noir Dye Ink.  It’s an intense black ink and is waterproof when it dries! I started watercoloring the florals and foliage with Schmincke and Winsor & Newton watercolor paints. For the flowers, I blended a red and yellowish paint. For the leaves, I stuck to one green watercolor paint. Generally, I like using different shades of one color to add more depth to my painting but I chose to keep the leaves simple on this card.

After the panel was dry, I die cut it using the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangle dies to add stitching to the edges. The largest dies cut the panel into an A2 (4.25in x 5.5in) panel.  Then I heat embossed the large hugs sentiment over the painted panel and then completed the sentiment by stamping the “sending big” in our Noir dye ink.  I embellished the card by adding our Dew Drops (7mm and 5mm) around the sentiment.

    Love the card, it’s so pretty. Thanks for sharing. Can you tell me what you use to press your into the bigger red rubber stamps? I’ve since you use it lately in your videos and I’m wondering what it is. Sorry if this has been asked and answered. Thanks for your help.

    I love your stamps and all of your products actually. Your videos are really great too – I always learn somthing when I watch them. Like Susan Pella I would also like to know what the tool is you are using on the background stamps. Looks very interesting.
