I wanted to try something a little different with the Sweet Berries rubber stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Since I had just come back from a quilt show with my mom, I decided I wanted a quilted look, but wasn't sure how I wanted to achieve it. Enter my postman and the goodies he delivered. Sitting out on my desk was a new M-Bossabilities folder (Garden Lattice) that will emboss a 8.5" x 11" sheet of cardstock.
I started out by heat embossing my image with Moss Star embossing powder and then colored it with Copic markers. You can see a little of the sparkle from this embossing powder in the photo on the right - but it has more sparkle in person. Then I ran it through the embossing folder. I happened to set it on top of a "test run" piece of embossed cardstock and knew that was exactly what I was looking for.
I layered the colored image onto dark blue cardstock and then lined it up the embossed area of the larger piece and adhered it. Dylusions Ink Sprays were used to give color to the circle with my stamped sentiment. (These stamps are part of the set.) The final step was to adhere this to another piece of white cardstock and add some faux stitching to the two inner white panels and the circle.
