This month’s theme is embossing… powder, folders & paste! Oh my!
This month’s theme is embossing. I decided to share a couple of ways to use embossing powder without Versamark Ink. Don’t you love glossy accents on a project? I do. Some of my favorite DSP packs are embossed specialty papers.
I used Tear & Tape to make the striped DSP embossed. I cut a 3″ x 4″ piece, large enough for my can die, and then placed a strip of Tear & Tape on every other stripe. I die cut my can and then removed my release tape to reveal the sticky before adding Clear Embossing powder and heat setting it.
Embossed die cuts are the cutest! I wanted my background to have little bit of shine so I stamped the fruit images from the set in Memento Black ink and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends.
Once I had my pieces colored, I layered them all onto a 1/2 sheet of the Stampin’ Up! Adhesive sheet, face down and then trimmed away any extra sticky sections. You don’t want to run sticky edges through your Emboss & Cut Machine.
You can see through the second release paper for die placement – super easy!
Once your stickers are cut out, remove the release paper and apply your Clear Embossing powder. Heat set and you have cute, glossy die cuts!
I stamped the bubble images in Flirty Flamingo ink onto scratch paper then second generation stamped it onto my Flirty Flamingo cardstock. Then I stamped my sentiment in Memento Black ink before adhering my die cut pieces randomly. I trimmed off any parts that hunger over the edge and then adhered the layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock before gluing it to my Flirty Flamingo card base.
