Posts Tagged ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’

The Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC707) is a fabric site full of colors & patterns. I was inspired by THIS fabric for the bright colors. From the thumbnail, it looked floral to me so that’s the direction I went.

Instead of embossing resist, I did the reverse on my background. I sponged on the Distress inks, dried it w/ a heat gun then used my embossing buddy over to make sure it was really dry. (It probably would have been easier to emboss, then sponge, but sometimes it’s hard to get all of ink off of the embossing & I wanted it to be really crisp & white.) Then the azaleas were white embossed on top. The white front was die cut twice w/ a stitched curve die to make the split thru the center. After adding the greeting, I die cut some tiny flowers out of leftover background pieces & attached them.

Here’s a look at the inside. The azalea image is a 2 part stamp & while I only used the outline on the front, I used both here on the inside. There’s also a matching die for it, if you’re interested. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS645). So a big congrats to Michelle! She has a lovely gallery & after browsing her entire gallery, I kept coming back to THIS. I kept the Hot Air Balloon theme & layout, but I used dies instead of a stamp, different colors & a shaving cream bg instead of a watercolor bg.
 My version is pretty simple..I sponged a white piece of c/s w/ yellow & orange Distress inks, then die cut one of just the yellow for the outline & the inserts out of the red/orange part. The greeting was white embossed on black & the sky circle is a remnant piece of  shaving cream bg.

Here’s the inside. I used the negatives of the balloon & clouds as a stencil to sponge thru them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s CAS Challenge (CAS537) is all about June weddings. So I have a really quick wedding card.

The wedding couple, greeting, & candles in the corner were all white embossed on turquoise felt card stock. It’s not really made of felt, but it has that same textural look to it. It’s backed w/ a WFD (wrinkle free distress) background I made w/ Distress oxide inks. the flourish across the top was cut out of the same paper & I added a few pearls on it.

Here’s the inside. I flipped over the negative of the die cut for the front & used it as a stencil on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
