Happy Sunday! This week at Scrapmaster’s Paradise, I would like to present to you the stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral! This has been in the catalog a while, but I still just absolutely love the style of these flowers. This week, I will be sharing projects made using this stamp set.
Here is my first Fifth Avenue Week project for you:
- This card was made using one of the color combos I posted for World Card Making Day, this would be WCMD Combo #2, click here to play along!!
- The rose is from the Stampin’ UP Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set. I stamped the flower in Stampin’ UP Chocolate Chip Craft ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossed powder so that it would be waterproof for coloring. I colored it in with the Aqua Painter and I took ink from the lids of my Bermuda Bay classic ink and Pale Plum Craft ink.
- TIP: Make sure the tip of your Aqua Painter is very wet at the tip so that you get this nice watercolored effect when adding color to your stamped image.
- TIP: To get ink onto the lid of your full sized Stampin’ Pads, close your ink pads and squeeze them in the center. This will push some of the ink from the pad onto the lid so when you open the ink pad, you will have ink ready to add to your aqua painter!
- The sentiment was made from the Stampin’ UP Simple Letters Bigz Alphabet for the Big Shot machine!! This is one of my most recent purchases!!! I cut out my letters from raw chipboard (Stampin’ UP Long Board) and then covered them with Pale Plum Craft ink and heat set them with my Heat Tool.
- TIP: When you heat set Craft ink, the true color of the craft ink comes out! You can watch the color transform before your eyes!! Use tweezers to hold your letters down so they don’t move when heat setting them (some times smaller letters tend to blow away, like my dot for my I)
- Background paper is from the Stampin’ UP Bermuda Bay designer patterns pack.
- The base of my card is a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock.
