I have used the gorgeous Strawberry Stamp Set for both of my cards. The stamp set also has a coordinating die. For my first card, I stamped the image onto white ultra smooth card stock, and used Copic Markers to color the first layer. Next, I pulled out my Polychromos pencils and pencil sharpener, and started adding details. This is my favorite way to add depth to my cards. With a sharp pencil tip, I am able to give extra attention to the smallest areas.F2DE20EB-8FFB-43CD-8173-828446746E32

To make the card front background, I stamped the strawberries in all four corners of the panel with embossing ink. I poured WOW! Super Fine Platinum Embossing Powder over the embossing ink, then tapped the excess powder off.  I used my heat tool to melt the embossing powder. This was my first time using Platinum, and it is beautiful! For the heat embossed sentiment, I used WOW! Super Fine Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder to heat-emboss. I cut the sentiment and strawberry image down, and added them to the card base with thin foam squares.

For my second card, I used Polychromos Pencils to color the strawberries on colored card stock.

I used my stamping platform to stamp the image onto the top right corner with light ink. Once I finished coloring, I put the panel back into my platform, and restamped the image, this time with embossing ink. I poured WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder over the ink. I melted the powder with my heat tool, then repeated the process in the bottom left corner. Next, I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink, and poured WOW! Super Fine Primary Ebony Embossing Powder over the ink. I melted the powder, then trimmed the panel. I mounted the panel onto black card stock, backed it with craft foam, and attached it to an A2 size card base. My last step was adding a few Pretty Pink Posh Jewels.
