Our 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog officially launched this past Saturday. We hope you have enjoyed browsing through it and creating your shopping lists. As we do so, here’s an inspiration introduction to our new Mystic Romance Collection.
Mystic Romance is full of elegant stamp and die sets that we’ll show you plenty of ways to use. Today, we are playing with the collection’s Embroidered Rose Stamp & Die Set, the Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set and the Mystic Impressions Embossing Folder to create two beautiful cards.
Love You Card
Take a look at the Embroidered Rose Stamp & Die Set in your catalog, page 20. It includes 3 sizes of roses, plus coordinating stems and leaves to match. The embroidered look on these images allow you to stamp with one ink color and still give the stamped image color variance – producing texture.
After creating your two roses, consider your card layout. The Mystic Impressions Embossing Folder as your background gives life to your stamped roses by continuing your theme. Plus, the embossing folder looks elegant across three coordinating cardstock colors as shown.
Lastly, make sure you sentiment stands out. A simple sentiment will work. However, the Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set matches the design of your roses and therefore coordinates perfectly for your handmade card. Stamp and emboss the ‘Love You’ sentiment.
Complete your project with that extra gold flair, to complement this Mystic Romance Collection. Die cut a Journey Circle out of our new Mirror Gold Cardstock. This gold shimmer will really make your sentiment pop! Add more gold with our new Fashion Gold accents and a strand of the Journey Gold Thread.

Miss You Card
You can’t stop there! Keep using your new Mystic Romance ideas for sweet cards, like this Miss You Card. Give your Embroidered Roses a different look than the card above. Pop your rose stamp up with the stem stamped flat on the panel giving beautiful dimension to your project. Keep your roses as the focal point with a solid Whip Cream Cardstock panel instead of directly on the embossing folder. You can still use the Mystic Impressions Embossing Folder as a nice background accent, but not a major focal point.
Add your sentiment from the Embroidered Greetings Stamp. Then complete your look by giving a sweet subtle shimmer with Sparkle Silk and a couple of Cut Rhinestones.
