Monochromatic Poppy Parade – Embossing with Stencils

Welcome to the weekend friend, Today I have a clean and elegant card using a rather bright colour for our Monochromatic Insta Hop challenge. This week’s featured colour is Poppy Parade. With the colour being so bright I went with adding it in small doses – so to speak.

I created a frame and added a panel of Basic White Cardstock which had been embossed in the centre with a mask from the Foursquare Decorative Masks.

HOW TO DRY EMBOSS WITH A MASK/STENCIL

I’d seen a fun technique and though I’d give it a try for this card. Have you every tried dry embossing with your Masks or Stencils? It’s so easy to do.

Use the same sandwich you would do like you would do for die cutting. You may need to add a shim depending on the calibration of your machine ie: if it doesn’t feel like there’s enough resistance to apply the image of the mask onto the paper.

I die cut a small section with the Elegant Borders dies and added to the bottom of the card for a decorative border. Another one of the border dies was used to blend through to create the little pattern on the butterflies.

The sprig was die cut 3 times from White Cardstock and layered together to add depth as well as making it more stable. I added the Linen Thread and the Cork embellishments to help create a more natural look and thereby toning down the Poppy Parade. The simplicity of this card made it fitting for a Thinking of You sentiment working well with the minimal colours.

I hope you try out embossing with your stencils to see what fun backgrounds you will create.

Emboss Resist Technique – Inked & Tiled Stamp Set

The Emboss Resist Technique is so simple but yields such effective results. If you have not heard of this technique – you heat emboss an image and then when you add colour over it, the heat embossed image ‘resists’ the colour and the stamped image shows through while the colour is in the background.

Inspired by Susan Wong’s creation for the Global Design Project GDP404 – Case the Designer Challenge I wanted to recreate the blended circle element Susan had on her project along withe the colour palette.

I stamped the leaf image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set inVersamark and heat embossed it in White. Then I blended a range of blue inks from lightest to darkest, over the samped images. I wiped back the colour off the leaves with a tissue which brought up the white.

For the matte layer I cut apart one of the cards from the Kraft Notecards & Envelopes pack. This pack comes with 20 notecards and envelopes plus a box to assemble which you can put the cards in once you’ve created them. It’s great for gift giving.

The card had a score line in the centre so I added some additional score lines using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

I added some leaves in Garden Green die cut from the Meadow Dies to resemble the trees in the original image. Another leaf die cut from the Kraft notecards tied the matte layer in with the focal image. You can see another card I made some years back using the Emboss Resist technique here.

I kept the rest of the card clean with a simple White heat embossed sentiment with the ‘happy’ taken from the Ringed with Nature stamp set.
