Aloha!!  Welcome to Makeover Monday!!

Greeting card created with Stampin' Up's Henna Hearts Stamp Set for Makeover Monday. #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Heat Embossing, #Handmade Cards

A simple image included in the Henna Hearts Stamp Set is the focus of today’s Makeover Monday card.   

To begin, I stamped the image with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  I colored parts of the image with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Dark Marker.  

In addition, I added several layers. The silver layer is actually heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder.  To do this, I applied VersaMark Ink directly to the card stock, sprinkled with Silver Embossing Powder and used the Heat Tool.  

To complete, I added several Rhinestones and a bow,

Here are the dimensions:

Fresh Freesia, 11 X 4-1/4, score 5-1/2
Basic White, 5-1/8 X 3-7/8
Basic White, 5 X 3-3/4
Fresh Freesia DSP, 5 X 2

I am enjoying coffee in beautiful Maui as I write this post.  (I will post pictures later today on my Facebook Group Page, Stampin’ Gala Stampers Group.)

I used the new Henna Hearts Stamp Set to create this card.  It is stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  Next, I added a little color with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Dark Marker on the heart.

Today’s card has more detail that the Simple Sunday version.  

To start with, I spotlighted the image by using the Layering Oval Dies, adding a silver scalloped border and elevating it with Dimensionals.  

I also using slightly more designer series paper and embossed the Basic White panel with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

On the inside, I added a very thin strip of Silver Foil Sheets.  It makes a huge difference.

So Much Love

Welcome to Simple Sunday, where I create a simple, but beautiful card.

Today’s card includes my favorite 2019-2021 In-Color, Seaside Spray.  This is one of my all-time favorite blues.  I used the Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in one of the image from the So Much Love stamp set.

If you would like to own any of the 2019-2021 In Color products, now is the time to purchase them.  The retirement list will publish March 24, 2021.  After that time they are only available while supplies last and I can assure you that they will go very quickly.

I also colored and fussy cut one of the flowers for the inside of the card.  I added a strip of DSP and a small bow and it was just enough to spruce up the inside.  I hope you like this card.
