Clear Raspberry

When i saw the beveled window panes in the mini I wasn't too sure about them. But I saw what other people had done and of course then I absolutely needed them. Way too cool. This is my first creation. I am pleased with the result. What do you think?

Ink: Baja Breeze, Not quite Navy, Early espresso, white craft ink
Stamps: Clearly for You, Afterthoughts
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Accessories: Square Lattice & tulip frame  embossing folders, dazzling diamonds glitter, beveled window pane, White Brads, Cherry Cobbler & old olive Chalk


Rubber Inkspirations Tips:
  • To only emboss a portion of your card, only place the portion you want embossed in the folder. Remember, do your stamping first.
  • Use a larger piece of card, stamp your image & adhere beveled window pane. Wait for it to dry & trim excess with a hobby blade. Perfect fit every time.
  • Use a piece of scrap cardstock for a squeegee to spread the crystal effects evenly.

  4. Wanda,
    Have you performed a technique here to make the Not Quite Navy look like denim? Is it because of the embossing or is it just the way it comes across on the screen? I like the look.

  5. The embossed tulips were lightly sponged with white craft ink.
