Video: How to Stamp Emerging Corners with Wild at Heart

Hello! Today I show you how to make “emerging corners” with my Wild at Heart set from Gina K. Designs.  The partial inking or embossing of one or more corners (or top and bottom as shown in one sample) of this bold reverse image flower frame will add a lot of style and interest to your cards, and create so many new layouts, with ample space to showcase your favorite images and greetings in the open area.  So many options, you choose how thick or thin your corners will be!  I use the perching butterflies from my Stately Flowers 10 set (which were still out on my desk from last week!), perfect for resting on the edge of these stamped reveals, and finish with simple coloring with the coordinating inks pads and a water brush. Please enjoy this clean and simple design! I hope you will subscribe to my channel.
