{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Puts the Spotlight on Ironing

Hi, everyone Cornelia here today doing some ironing... .....housework (???) - no way .....stamp ironing, of course!

Lets get started:
Positioned the stamps on my Misti

and heat embossed in clear - you may see the brown smudge on the Authentic - I burned the paper, darn, that has not happend in years.... but no need to worry.

Did some water coloring and after it had dried I ironed off the clear embossing. Put some kitchen towel in between the card and the iron, of course. 

Stamped over with the calla lily in Versamark and embossed in gold.

Needed more stuff, so I took the lily of the valley stamp from the same set and stamped in black

Still not happy. Added some color to the Lily of the Valley - same shade of blue, but darker and some white to the blossoms and some yellow to the Calla Lilies.

Finally satisfied. By the way - the brown burn mark - just went over it with my white pen and its gone.....

Added the sentiment on foam tape, a thin strip of wood paper on the left of the card and rounded the right bottom corner.

My stamp supplies:

Now pull out your iron and get to work ;)


  1. Fabulous techniques...again...and great use of the iron! Such gorgeous colours and layout x

  2. Cornelia does it again....awesomeness.

  3. Wow luv this color and luv what you show us the step by step..awesome card Cornelia..

  4. Klasse !!! auch wenn ich nie bügle ( das macht der beste Mann der Welt) aber für die Technik sollte ich wohl mal wieder ein "Eisen" anpacken
    LG hellerlittle
    PS: keinem wäre der kleine Fleck aufgefallen ....

  5. What a beautiful creation - love that almost translucent look to the lilies!!

  6. Wow Cornelia..your card is Beautiful, Amazing, Awesome, Authentic and Creative just like You! TFS and always inspiring us. Hugs, Nancy

  7. Perfect timing! I already got out my craft iron for another card this week PLUS my very first Stamplorations products arrived today. Love how the black stamping and gold embossing adds to the design.

  8. Love, love, love this card Cornelia!! The blues are just fantastic!! You depicted the flowers in a very unique way by making them not stand out so much. Monochromatic coloring, stamping, and a bit of white is all it needed! Your sentiments are my fav! They weave in and out of the design. Genius, friend!! I love this card.. Seriously awesome work.

  9. Oh, so this is what my iron is for... pretty project! I really love those beautiful calla lilies!

  10. Gorgeous card. Love the blues you have used and the gold embossed lilies:)


We love hearing from fellow crafters! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
