Helping Me Grow

Sometimes, stampsets will make you dream of spring.  Add in a fantastic name like Helping Me Grow, and you’ll be dreaming of spring in no time!  (And I’m sure it has nothing to do with the winter weather!).

This card is from Siara Acdal in Honoka’a, Hawaii (wishing I was there right now!!). I love that this card has just one colour, Wisteria Wonder, paired with the white.  If you have ever wondered how to get the image bright white on coloured cardstock, the answer is White Embossing Powder.  There is a difference in the quality of embossing powders, and Stampin’ Up!’s is exceptionally good!  To heat emboss, you need embossing powder, versamark (or ink that stays wet for a few minutes), and a heat tool.  Stamp the image using versamark, sprinkle on embossing powder (and shake off extra), and use the heat tool to heat the image until it “plasticizes”.  It’s one of my favourite techniques!  If you are looking for a colour to start with, white or clear are a good start!
