Embossed Bouquet

I've started working on a mini-album (ok, it should have been finished by now, but life intervened) and today I'm sharing the front cover. I started with the Mix and Match Album #2 from Creative Cuts and More (in Bazzill Kraft).  This is a super cool little set - you get 2 each of 4 pre-cut pieces of card stock, each one 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". You can order different sizes of album rings separately.

I started by stamping my gorgeous Baroque Bouquet Cling Jumbo rubber stamp directly onto my card stock. I added a bit of color using regular colored pencils from my daughter's art stash.  I added sponging all around the outer edges of the page. Then I stamp Versamark ink directly to the card stock, and poured Deep Impressions Clear Embossing Powder over the whole thing. I heated it from underneath, and once it was all melted I applied a second coat.

My buckle was made using a buckle from Buckle Set #2 and covering it with Shabby White Enamel. It has cool flecks of gold in it, and looks fabulous once heated.  I finished it off with a bit of ribbon. I'll be sharing more album pages in the near future, so stay tuned.

Don't forget about my weekly blog candy! See the Stampendous Saturday post for all the details :)

Beautiful start Taylor! I love the distressed edges on the kraft, I have a small addiction to kraft cardstock!
