In the 5- minutes video below, I’m sharing the process that involves a technique called embossing resist.
I used supplies from the new Blossoms and Butterflies release by Simon Says Stamp and today we are also having a blog hop filled with ideas and inspiration for you.
All the cards in this post are size: C6 (5-1/2 x 4-1/4″ inches)
I also used every single die-cut (nothing was wasted ) and I defo had to try different colours!!
Which colour do you like the most?
The Cardmaking Process.
- I heat embossed the backgrounds on Arches watercolour paper using embossing powders and Simon Says Stamp clear ink.
- Then I applied different shades of Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens over the paper and I sprayed loads of water.
- I allowed this to dry, and I used Dhalia Frame Wafer Die to cut the backgrounds .
- This allowed me to create a dimensional framed composition.
Behind the die-cut flower, I added Craft Perfect Glitter cardstock in a colour that coordinates with the embossing powder used for each card.
I also used Press’n Seal to hold die cuts in place while glueing them all together.
This is not strictly necessary but it helps a lot.
Tiny Words Encouragement stamp set was perfect to stamp small banners to add to all my projects today.
I also used a couple of dies to cut a gift box and a tag.
