Hello and welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop for March!
I love this months theme of Embossing Techniques!! I decided to challenge myself to create a card with Embossing Techniques that I don't often use. I decided to use a decorative mask and Embossing Paste and also Heat Emboss an image in White on coloured card stock. It was fun creating this card starting with the embossed background layer and then deciding what to put on top. Here is my completed card.
- Start with a Basic White card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half
- Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 10cm x 14.3cm
- Using a Palette Knife mix a tablespoon of the Embossing Paste with 1 drop of the Petal Pink ink on your silicone mat. Ensure that the colour is evenly mixed
- Secure your Basic White piece of card stock with tape and the floral Decorative Mask secured over the top. Spread the mixed embossing paste over the top of the mask using the Palette Knife. I have spread the embossing paste in the centre of the piece of Basic White card stock. Set aside to dry. Once dry use dimensionals to adhere to the card base
- Stamp the flower in Versamark™ ink on a piece of Petal Pink card stock. Sprinkle with White embossing powder and set with the heat tool. Colour the petals of the flower with a White Stampin' Chalk Marker. Die cut using the coordinating die. Secure to the card front using Dmensionals
- Stamp the sentiment in Versamark™ Ink on a strip of Basic White card stock.Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder and set with the heat tool. Trim closer to the letters and use Treasured Tag Punch to cut both ends
- Cut a 10cm length of the Petal Pink Organdy Stripe Ribbon and a 9.5cm length of the Fine Art Ribbon. Secure both together with Tear n' Tape and adhere across bottom of the flower stem using Dimensionals. Then using Tear n' Tape to secure the sentiment abel to the top of the ribbons. Banner both ribbons at the ends
- Secure three Brushed Brass Butterflies to card front
This was a fun way to create the background layer and colour the stamped image to make the Embossed image pop. It is something that I definitely will try again.
