Scrapbooker to Cardmaker: Working with Flourish Stamps

Today continues the Scrapbooker to Cardmaker series. Last time the videos talked about stamps and inks you might start with if you are new to stamping.  If you are new to stamping or just want to make a card, there is a video link below.

This card uses the same stamps as above with some pastels thrown in.  You could use a soft distress ink if you didn't have pastels.

This one uses the same technique as the sample above except it is embossed with clear rather than gold powder.  It creates a tone-on-tone look in an usual color combo:
