Archive for the ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’ Category



This is for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC667) & Stacy chose a lovely Etsy shop. For my card, I was inspired by THIS picture. I love the dark bg w/ the pop of bright blue.

To make my card, I put the rather large Winking Birds image into my Misti, then used a really small ink pad to ink just the branch I wanted & stamped it onto black c/s.  I happen to still have a bunch of Tsukineko’s dauber duo ink sticks so that’s what I used. You could do the same w/ any small cube pigment pad or marker. Since it’s in the Misti, it can be stamped repeatedly to get it good & wet. After I stamped it, I used an embossing powder that I mixed to get the color I wanted. It’s a half & half of a blue pastel & a candy green. It turned out just the aqua color I was looking for.  The background aqua piece  was first die cut w/ a stitched rectangle then I used a narrow inset die on it. I had to cut it 3 times to span the width of the bg. First I cut both ends, then was happy to discover if I lined up a portion on the already cut area, it would cut the remaining center almost perfectly. It’s similar to my resizing tutorial,you just have to be a little more careful when lining up the die. I die cut some little birds out of the same aqua color & added them to the branches & on the greeting circle.

Here’s a look at the inside. I stamped the entire bg image on it w/ a lt teal shadow ink. Adds a little something but it’s still light enough to write on.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Jo Anne, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has such a cute little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the giraffe in the frame but used different images, different papers & a different embossing folder.

To make my birthday card, I first stamped, colored & die cut the cute little giraffe. Then I made a polka dot frame & die cut some greenery to go around him. The white bg was embossed in a folder before adding it to the orange polka layer. I used just a section of a die to cut the tab w/ the greeting then attached it to the frame. 

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

A big congrats to Mandy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS603) on Splitcoast! She has such a pretty gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I liked the emboss resist & the masked off lower section, so I kept those. But I used different images, different colors & added a die cut image on top.

For my card, I put the white panel in my Misti, masked off the lower 2/3 of it & stamped the poppies w/ London Fog ink. After coloring them in w/ Copics, I overstamped them w/ white pigment ink then heat embossed them w/ white powder. I masked them off then stamped the flourish, embossed it, then sponged in the tumbled glass Distress ink on the background. A separate poppy image was stamped, colored, embossed & die cut w/ the matching die & I added it on top. After stamping the greeting, I added a turquoise layer & some dots w/ metallic white dimensional fabric paint & a few sequins.

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