I used the CTMH Level 2 Sweetheart paper pack to create this interactive slide card. You will notice that the Hollyhock bird has a black outline that was created using the 2-step outline stamping technique and was embossed using Black embossing powder.
After the slide has been pulled, the hidden flower bud was also created using the 2-step outline stamp, and the leaves were colored using the CTMH colored pencils.

This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. If you would like to start from the beginning, please visit this link. While there you will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way. Let’s get started!
If you are coming from Kelly's Blog, you are on the right track! You will find variations for this technique's use through this hop.
This 6x6 card was made using the Originals pattern "Background Bar" (pg 75). The larger heart was stamped at the "background" using Cotton Candy ink, and the smaller heart was stamped using Versamark and embossed with Baby Pink powder. This element was then cut out, leaving a small border of white, and then "popped" with foam tape to the center of the Tulip cardstock mat.
2. Stamp additional images in Versamark ink. Sprinkle with contrasting color of embossing powder.
3. Tap off excess powder. Set with craft heater.
Here you can see a visual demonstration of this technique.
Thanks for stopping by! Continue onto Heather's Blog to continue the hop!

This standard size card was created using the new CTMH MyReflections Level 2 paper pack Sophia.

The rabbit was adhered using 3-D foam tape giving a raised appearance.

It has been such a crazy couple of weeks - busy with school, church, and so much more. I was eating lunch with the kids this afternoon, and it hit me...it's been TWO weeks since I posted a Creative Corner!
So....let's correct that problem. Do you need some inspiration?
Happy Scrappin'...I will be back on Thursday to post another Creative Corner...hopefully, the pictures will be straight! :0)
