Lovely Lace Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!

  • Lovely Lace cards in Pink Pirouette
  • New Photopolymer stamp sets on Clearance Racks
  • Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin BOGO - until Oct 10 2016

May Flowers Framelit and Lovely Lace

I used a technique of inking the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder with a brayer before running it through the Big Shot to create this card.  Then I added the May Flower Framelit flower over the top of the brayerd image. 

The card was difficult to photograph.  It came out looking like a shade of Peekaboo Peach rather than Pink Pirouette.  The color is actually Pink Pirouette with the sentiments stamped in Mellon Mambo. I originally tried Basic Black, and then I tried Rose Red for the sentiments, but Mellon Mambo was my final choice with Pink Pirouette images.  Basic Black overpowered the card and Rose Red seemed too faded.  Mellon Mambo added just the right amount of pop.

I used three different sentiments, all from the Rose Wonder stamp set.    I also cut both a Whisper White and a Pink Pirouette flower using the May Flowers thinlit die, and then offset the white underneath the Pink Pirouette layer to give the flower a bit of dimension.  Without the Whisper White layer, the flower seemed to blend into the background image.

Lovely Lace Embossing Folder brayed with Pink Pirouette ink on Whisper White card stock created this effect

This photo (above), shot at a different angle than the other cards captured the true Pink Pirouette colors of the original card best.  Click for a larger image to see the details in the double flower.

Here is a shot of all three cards together.  Depending on how the light hits each card, you see different shades from Peekaboo Peach to Pink Pirouette, even though all three are the same Pink Pirouette.  This is shot in nature daylight.  Anyone else have difficulty photographing Pink Pirouette?
