You Fill My Days with Joy

From the first moment I saw the Peach Blossom set, I knew I had to emboss it in gold!!!!

Days with Joy
Peach Blossom Stamp set embossed in gold

I used the reinkers with our Fusion Blender to color in the flower.  You can come up with some fantastic color combinations.  You can either put the fusion blender in one of the blender brushes or put it on an acrylic block.   Then put a couple drops of the reinker on another acrylic block.  You would just keep picking up a little of the fusion blender and some of the color depending on how deep you want the color.  It is a nice alternative to color pencils.

Sparkle Silk added to the pedals/Journey Glaze added to the center

I added some Sparkle Silk to the pedals of the flowers and then added some Journey Glaze in the middle of the flower.  Journey Glaze was added to random spots on the cardstock just to give it some added dimension.Days with Joy 2 copy

You can’t tell from the photo but I used one of the stamps from the Brushstroke stamp set to stamp the Buttercream card base.  I used Buttercream ink.  I wanted to add a little something to the cardstock but didn’t want it to over power the card.

I finished the card off with some Gold and Dark Roast silks.  Added Olive Green Satin Ribbon and was done.

I really like how the gold embossing really gives detail to the flower.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Crafting!!
