Dandelion Dreams Embossing

I’ve had the Dandelion Dreams stamp set for a while, but haven’t really used it much yet. So, I decided to make a special birthday card using this stamp set, some distress inks, and embossing.


How I made this card:

I used the ink blending tools to add distress ink to a piece of watercolour paper. I then spritzed it with perfect pearls mist and used my heat tool to dry it quickly. Then I added some water droplets for texture, drying that again with the heat tool.

Using Versamark ink, I stamped the dandelion stems and flowers. I then heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

Keeping bling to a minimum on this card, I added some small adhesive gems to the flowers.

I then used a sentiment from the same stamp set, heat embossed on vellum.

Once the front panel was finished, I adhered it to a card base, rounding the corners as a finishing touch.

Scroll down to the end of this post for a photo of another card I made using this design.


Products used to make this card:

  • Clearly Besotted Dandelion Dreams stamp set
  • Distress inks – Peacock Feathers and Evergreen Bough
  • WOW embossing powder
  • Vellum
  • WRMK Corner Chomper
  • Adhesive gems

Different colours: 

I loved this design so much, I thought I’d recreate it with different colours:


This background used three colours of distress ink blended together – seedless preserves, picks raspberry, and shaded lilac. I also added some extra bling to this card.
