Katzelkraft - Simon Says Stamp and Show - Embossing

Hi everyone, hope you're all well! My day on the Katzelkraft blog today and I've made a Valentine's card using stamps from the Katzelkraft 'Love' stamp plate

The shoe was stamped on watercolour paper, coloured with distress ink, then cut out and embossed all over with crystal embossing powder so it has a lovely sparkle, this means that I can enter my card into Simon Says Stamp and Show some embossing this week :).

I stamped the white paper doily with one of the heart stamps in spun sugar distress ink and this is completely embossed with the crystal embossing powder which has made it slightly translucent and given a very pretty effect. The small nestabilitiy die cut and embossed heart is stamped with the 'Love is in the air' stamp and Victorian Velvet distress ink and the background piece is dry embossed with a cuttlebug hearts folder. I punched some butterflies and spritzed them with pink mica mist which I also did on the flowers and ribbon. To decorate I've added lots of dots to the background, the large butterfly and the doily with a silver pearl pen.

Enjoy your day and thanks as always for your lovely comments, one of these days I'll catch up with returning them!

Hi Chris! This is a very gorgeous Victorian style card and I love that sexy shoe over the heart doily. The punched heart on the flower is such a pretty touch along with the butterfly. Great embossed background!
Hugs, Cami
