Hello friends! I picked up a stamp from Michaels the other day and I wanted to try it out. It is from Inkadinkado.

Card stock : Cryogen White, GKD White Pure Luxury , Pure Luxury In the Navy and Pure Luxury Creme de Menthe
Ink : Memento Black, New Sprout,
Sentiment of your choice
Tools: Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy, Paper Cutter (I use Fiskars), Scissors (Tim Holtz helps reduce pain for those with arthritis!), Quickie Glue Pen, Adhesive,large sponge daubers, Cuttlebug or die cutter, Spellbinders Impressabilities "Flourish", Atyou Spica pen and jeweled embellishment.
Tip: When you letterpress with Spellbinders Impressabilities, just dab the color to the plate. Do not rub. They are very fragile and will bend if you try to rub the color onto the plate.
I used the "Letterpress" technique for the card layer. I placed Memento Ink "New Sprout" on the Flourish Spellbinder Impressabilities plate and ran it through my cuttlebug.
I experimented with different colors of Atyou Spica pens. I decided to give some glits to the layer by adding "Sand" to the design. It is very hard to see the shine - but trust me - it is really rocks!
I assembled the ard and attached a jeweled embellishment to the center of the flower.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card. I always enjoy having you!
