A new year and an new term as a DT for the House of Cards for me, and I am very happy to be part of this amazing team. This month our Challenge are embossing and or color inspiration.
Here is mye Star foldet Card.
As you know I love and use a lot of embossing on my cards, and to day I want to show you a non-traditional way of embossing, Coloring with embossing powder.
This technique I spotted over at Jennifer McGuire on Youtube and had to try it.
I have this layered stamp sett from Altenew, where I used the leafs to try this technique.
The way of how you do it is that instead of layers of ink stamping you use Versamark and colored embossing powders.
I did not have many colors to pick from so the first layer, the base I used a light green pingment ink from Colorbox and clear embossingpowder over. Next layer is a powder from Tim Holtz and Ranger, and it have this sandy feeling when you touch it. Since I already had a layer of clear embossing powder this powder become less sandy to touch. The top layer is black embossing from Whistler, my favorite embossingpowder, sadly they are retired.
To get a good result it is smart to use your antistatic tool, cloth or buddy between each layer and let them cool down between each embossing and dont overheat.
I have the die set to this stamp set so I die cut all the leavs I made.
I also die cut this ornamental cirkel from Marianne desing, embossed it and when still in the die I inked up the raised parts of it.
The Star foldet card I have seen lots of on Pintrest and have made one before, and this is a simpler take on it as I wanted to let the leavs and front lable be the main focus.
I lightly inked up the egdes of the roses, and a lace ribbond glued at the back of the front panel with a cirkle to cover it.
The text I diecut from the same paper as the card base of the card. I was planed to emboss it but forgot. Sorry. Emboss your diecuts in embossing powder and they get a 3D effect. You can see it on my Frosty Card. This is also a card with a lot of heat embossing on it, have look for more inspirations.
There are so many ways that you can eboss and use embossing powder. Hope you got inspired and want to try out this fun technique of layered embossing.
And check out the other DT members for more inspiration~
