It’s been a hot minute since I did any heat embossing. I was prepping for my November class, and dug out the gold embossing powder, and decided to play with the emboss resist for the First Friday Free class. It’s such a fun technique, and really allows you to explore creativity and colour blending.
Using Stampin’ Up! paper and inks ensures your colours will match- no hunting for the perfect colours. For this card, I used Balmy Blue, Tahitian Tide and Misty Moonlight inks for the sentiment panel. The Beary Christmas patterned paper offers the perfect background.
This technique is easily applied to any occaision, all you need to do is switch up the paper, ink, and sentiments. It’s also stunning as a background for cards.
To complete this project, you’ll need: Patterned paper, cardstock, clear embossing powder, stamp of your choice, a blending tool, inks, embellishments if desired, adhesive, a paper trimmer, and a cloth to rub off excess ink.
Measurements for this card:
Card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
Balmy Blue layer 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
Patterned paper 4″ x 5 1/4″
Sentiment layer – cut to fit your sentiment or stamped image
Sentiment mat layer- cut 1/4″ larger than the sentiment layer.
