Awow Blog Hop – Embossing Technique

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world in Melbourne, Australia. Great to have you here for our monthly, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. If you are stopping by from my friend Leonie Stuart’s blog, I’m sure you would have been inspired by her beautiful take on an Embossing Technique.

For my card, I started off with a heat embossed border using the Decorative Borders stamp set. Over the White embossing I blended Pear Pizzazz, Soft Succulent and Parakeet Party inks which created the embossing resist technique. I added a bit more blending in Coastal Cabana on the top part of the Stitched Rectangle panel.

Using the Stamparatus to position my Butterfly Brilliance stamp, I heat embossed the large butterfly in White. Then I coloured it in Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Watercolour Pencils. I used a Stampin’ Blend Color Lifted to blend sections of the colours.

On the card base I layered a piece of Vellum Basics and a layer of Basic White Cardstock embossed with the Hive Embossing Folder. Currently you can get this embossing folder free with a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration.

Inbetween the layers I also added some strips of Textured Shimmer Paper which adds a beautiful subtle textured look.

A wave die cut from Shimmer Vellum and some coordinating ribbon and Opal Dots complete my card with … a bit more embossing for the sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my embossing inspiration and give one of these techniques a try. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions. Don’t forget to follow our hop through for lots of beautiful creations and please leave us a comment as you stop by.

Next on our hop is the very talented Cheryll Miller.
