Seek and You Will Find – by Heidi Blankenship

(SALE in our Coffee/Tea Sectionlast day today!)

Heidi shares a card of encouragement today that was quite simply made, yet super striking. She started by taking a fun watery-themed piece of paper (Graphic 45) and doctored it up a bit with some embossed stenciling atop the design – soooo pretty! She also added some more dimension with Glossy Accents. Take a look:

SeekAndYouWillFindCardHeidiBlankenship1 500x600

This is just so watery and luscious!

The paper is from Sun Kissed by Graphic 45.

The scripture stamp is one of many in our Farmhouse Series.

I love how the white sentiment on black paper just POPS here against all those blues.

On this close up you can better see the stenciling (which was heat embossed in clear).

Heidi intentionally did not stencil over the large turtles as she wanted them to stand out. They are accented with glossy accents for a glossy sheen and added dimension.

A FUN way to dress up an already pretty sheet of paper!

You can find Heidi’s post on her blog here.

Delicata 600x257

Delicata Inks a big time FAVORITE of our design team

The beauty of this ink is that it looks equally as lovely used as is or embossed.

Without embossing it has a lovely metallic luster; however, it embosses beautifully as well. A wonderful dual purpose ink.

These inks coordinate beautifully with our Luxury Pearlescent Cardstock as well as the Bazzill Mirror Cardstock .
