New at SU blog hop - Stampin Up Awesome Silhouettes

new at su blog hop by stampin up demonstrators

embossing and blending card with zoe tant and stampin up amazing silhouettes
Welcome to our February New at SU blog hop. We're sharing card making ideas using products from the Stampin' Up! Spring mini catalogue. I've chosen to share a make using the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set.  Inspired by Chelsey Christensen who embossed this image I took a slightly different tack and came up with this design. 

To create this card I clear heat embossed the tree stamp.  Then using Stampin' Write markers I added fine dots using different shades of green to the foliage and browns to the branches and trunk keeping the lightest green, Soft Sea Foam and brown Sahara Sand to just gently colour over the respective areas and fill in the white space.

I blended on some grass using the negative from the die cut grass and then added the die cut over the top.  I love the pebbles do you?  These have been ever so popular and if you find them out of stock do come back and look again as they will return.  

You can add more texture with an embossed band, here I used Pool Party with the Painted Texture folder.  I also added a fun modern sentiment from Flowing Flowers. 

You can make a simpler version using the same techniques and here I used an embossing folder called Hammered Metal.  The brass butterflies are perfect for a touch of lux.

Some stamp sets grow on you, and this is one of them. The details like the pebbles and the sponging add such visual interest. Lovely work! I'm sure it will be a treasured card.
