Hello and good day to you!  I’m going to be out of town for a few days for my Copic certification classes.  I want to share this video post with you before I go.  So exciting!  I hope you will enjoy the video.

    I am using the Magnolia Rhapsody cling stamp set from Penny Black.  The “Sending You LOVE” sentiment is from MFT though I’m not sure which set as I forgot to write down the name.  Also, it appears this set is no longer offer as I was unable to find it anywhere.

    I started by stamping the Magnolia Rhapsody with Ranger distressed markers in Worn Lipstock, Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint and Ground Espresso onto letterpress (110 lb) cardstock – an Ellen Hutson brand. Next, I soften the image by running a wet paintbrush over the inks.  Distress inks react to water.  And surprising, I don’t know if you can tell in the photograph (and video), but the image raises from the paper after being wet – adding a 3D effect without any embossing.  I’m not sure if it is because of the letterpress cardstock.  But I’m really loving this look!  So neat!

    I carried the design to the inside of the card with a partial stamping of the Magnolia Rhapsody.  To complete the card, I stamped “Sending You LOVE” sentiment with VersaMark ink pad onto a piece of black cardstock and heat embossed with Ranger’s embossing powder – white.  Then fussy cut into a banner flag, foam mounted onto the card panel and finished with enamel dots.

    (TIP:  To prevent the embossing powder from sticking to the non-stamping area of the cardstock, rub the cardstock with the Inkadinkado embossing magic bag first to loosen the static cling from the cardstock).  

    Finished card size: 5″ x 5.50″
