My favorite carry over combo is Birthday Blossoms and the Pansy Punch. The punch works well for several stamp sets, especially the beautifully drawn images in Birthday Blossoms. Wanting to do this stamp set justice, I chose to stamp with white on black.

Stamping on Black

Stamping on black can create great results. It creates a striking image that you can use in your design. To get different shades of white, I stamped with Whisper White Craft ink. WW Craft is a pigment ink that works different from our regular dye ink pads. The ink stamps off bright white but when dries it becomes semi transparent. This can be read as gray when compared to bright white.

The bright white flowers were first stamped in WW Craft ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The addition of the embossing powder kicks up the whiteness to match the card stock and give a look of depth, creating a background of flowers and leaves and a foreground of white embossed flowers. Cutting out the flowers was simple and fast using the Pansy punch.
