Archive for the ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’ Category



I was able to combine 2 Splitcoast challenges with this card…the Technique (TLC690 -make a doodled frame) & the Clean & Simple (CAS481 – teacher or grad card). 

While I was pondering the doodled frame, I thought hmmm..I could make the greeting look like a chalkboard & white emboss the greeting. Then doodle a frame on it & around it.

After I white embossed the greeting & die cut it, I used the white pen to doodle the inside frame & the black pen to doodle the frame outside. The teacher tools were colored & fussy cut. The white hearts are part of the greeting on the inside & I inked just them & stamped them. I didn’t want to heat emboss them, so I used the white paint pen to make them stand out more.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Congrats to Connie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS587) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I liked the layout & shape of her main panel but I used different images, different colors & made mine a Thank You card. I also used the colors from Tuesday’s Color Challenge (CC685).

To make my card, I die cut the vellum centerpiece then stamped the greeting w/ black Stazon. The flower scroll was stamped using Brilliance moonlight white & a little pink added to back side w/ a Prismacolor pencil. I used a white pencil on the back side to add the highlights to the greeting. It’s attached to a dot embossed bg that I used a white marker to highlight the dots & edge it. The pink bg was embossed w/ a corner folder after die cutting.

Here’s a look at the inside.

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC648) & THIS was my inspiration.

To make my card, I used a background I made quite a while ago. It’s a technique I learned around 1999 (yikes!). Easy & fun to do. All you need is white glossy or semi-glossy card stock (it needs to have a coated surface) & art tissue that bleeds when wet. Not all tissue paper will do this, so check what you have first. I have some Spectra Art tissue & I know it bleeds so that’s what I used. Pick some colors you like but be aware that contrasting colors (like red & green) will make brown. Tear some pieces & place them on your card stock then mist it w/ water. Wait a minute or two then remove the tissue & let it dry. You want to leave the tissue on long enough to bleed the color onto the c/s but not long enough to dry there, or it will stick. 

After it dried, I placed it into my Misti & stamped the mailbox image on top. I wanted it a bit darker so I coated it w/ black embossing powder & heated. I used a white Posca paint pen to add the white dots to the flowers & border around it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!
