Missing you!



No comments

Hope you had a great start to this week! I am just popping in to show you a card with my all time favorite technique-heat embossing which is also the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays#16 and Mark’s Finest Papers#69
Did you see the new challenge is up at Young Crafters Unite which is all about coloring the stamped images and I think this card is a perfect entry 🙂


 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: PTI(Friends ’till the end), Ippity(Bit of Burlap, Regal Greetings); ink: Jenni Bowlin(Chewing gum, Cough Syrup, Brown Sugar), Rangers Distress Inks(Barn Door, Shabby Shutters);embossing:Versamark Embossing inkpad, Rangers Super fine detail embossing powder(clear); embellishment: Pie Lane(Rainbow faceted crystals, self adhesive leaf)

Well, I started out with the LilyPad Cards Sketch but then while making the card I just went in an altogether different direction (a girl needs to let go sometimes..ha!) but I was playing with my favorite technique- Heat Embossing and I just wanted to enjoy it.

The Ippity background – Bit of burlap(available for purchase with me) looks amazing with this technique although I was a bit disappointed with its size. Its small as compared to other background stamps available in the market. Another thing I discovered with this card is that Jenni Bowling inks work really well for emboss resist technique. I have a very limited selection of distress inks, so I looked for alternative and tried Jenni Bowlin instead and Voila…they worked great. The flower you see is colored in with Jenni Bowlin inks. Got to love that 🙂

I also enjoyed doing some heavy distressing of the edges and love the torn and rolled look of them.

If you have any other questions, let me know! We’ll have the answers in our regular Q&A feature on Friday 🙂
Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
