Jumbo Cling Dahlia

Have you seen the newest Youtube video on the Stampendous! blog?? Its about creating custom papers with the new Jumbo Dahlia cling rubber stamp. Be sure to go check it out!!

I have a card for you today using this same set. I started with some white cardstock that was first spritzed with some Tattered Angels Glimmer mists in Moroccan Sun and Mango. (Let this dry or heat it with a heat gun if impatient) Then with my Dahlia I stamped it on the spritzed card stock in Versamark ink then embossed it with Stampendous! Bark EP.

For the added color inside my Dahlia I rubbed some metallic chalks from Craf-T-Products into the petals. Here is a closeup of the Dahlia so you can see how pretty the colors all combine together.

I also stamped the Dahlia and embossed it with Stampendous! Copper powder on my backgrund layer (which was pre-printed paper from Bo Bunny and added a lovely extra texture). Then with the added flourish in the Jumbo Cling Dahlia set I added some random bits to a scrap of Copper cardstock and embossed that in copper.

Challenge List:
Southern Girls: Use flowers
Paper Pretties: Add ribbon
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge: eyelets or Brads
