Posts Tagged ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’


For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC828) we’re visiting The Stationery Studio & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely picture. I really liked the look of the gold embossing on the maroon bg.

My card is all on the one maroon layer, so I did a bit of masking since all the images are separate. The maroon is actually a bit darker in person, & not quite so red. I started w/ the pumpkin, stamped & embossed it, then masked & stamped the cornucopia. After masking those, I stamped all the other smaller images & embossed them as well. The greeting is two, put together. The Thankful was stamped/embossed first, the I inked the Be letters (from You’re the Best)  & taped over the rest so I wouldn’t stamp it & added it on top.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Dagmar, the newest Featured Stamper (FS766) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & uses so many great techniques. I chose THIS card to case. I kept the winter scene inside the masked shape but used different images & dies & made my scene a little bigger.

For my scenic Christmas card, I die cut the large scallop circle & used the reverse mask to cover all but the area where the scene would be. I used a curved mask to cover the sky area & sponged in the water, then used the reverse part to mask the water & sponged in the sky, leaving a white area between the two. I cut a bunch of masks for the rocks, since mine were all individual stamps, & stamped in the rocks. I covered the rocks & water & stamped the different size trees along the rocks. I used the scallop shaped mask to cover the scene, then stamped the snowflakes w/ white ink & embossed w/ holographic powder (it’s a little hard to see). A white Posca pen was used to add ‘snow’ dots to the sponged scene & also a little stickles for sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to October!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club October Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year.

For my cute gnome card, I colored & die cut the gnome & stamped the box onto another piece & colored it. I decided to cut a slit in the box to insert the gnome rather than masking & stamping the gnome inside the box. Here are a couple of pics showing the process.

I used a craft knife to cut along the lines on the top of the box.

You can see the opening I created.

The gnome is now inside the box!

On the rectangle on the right, I stamped the snowflakes w/ silver ink & heat embossed w/ a clear, sparkly powder. Both rectangles were backed by narrow layers of red & green. The clear star gems were added & I used a red Copic to color the center one.
Here are the Copics I used:
