In The Trees Black Emboss Technique

Have you ever had a project that you wanted to use black embossing powder on but couldn’t find any? Good news, you can emboss in black without having to use black embossing powder! Today’s project features a set from the Occasions catalog that launched this month, In The Trees. I really love this set, and knew right away I wanted to emboss the tree before coloring it. I love how the embossing powder adds texture and shimmer to this project.

The colors I used for the leaves are Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. I think the contrast between the light and dark leaves is beautiful. The Soft Suede tree trunk adds a nice, natural element.

I also used the Aqua Painter with Soft Sky for the shadow under my tree. I love the watercolor effect this gives my card, but a Blender Pen would work really well, too.

Background Bits Card

I love the Background Bits stamp set with this beautiful little flower. Coloring rubber stamps with our Stampin’ Write Markers gives a very beautiful effect to stamping. I’ve also used our Whisper White Craft ink paired with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to create a statement that really POPS against the Basic Black cardstock. The pearls are a nice touch that really turns this card into an elegant creation.

Party Time Shaker Card

I love a good shaker card, but what if you don’t have anything to “shake”? Just use 1/2″ circles! Heck, you could even use all the little bits of paper that come out of the thinlits and framelits. I’ve used some Dapper Denim and Silver Glimmer Paper circles inside this Party Time Shaker Card and love how it turned out!

This is a simple shaker card for both beginners and advanced crafters alike. The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set makes for some fun embellishments around the frame. I love a good shaker card, and one of my favorites that I’ve made is my Jar of Love Shaker Card using some beautiful sequins. What would you put in yours?

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Mat: 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
Frame: 4″ x 5-1/4″, cut a 3/4″ border
Sentiment: 1″ x 3-1/2″
Scrap: Approx. 3″ x 3″
1/2″ Circles: 12 cardstock, 5 Glimmer Paper

Sunken Images Card with Paisleys & Posies

I really have been loving the Eclipse cards lately, but this is more like the reverse eclipse card that I did with the Painted Harvest stamp set and the alphabets framelits dies. The idea is to have a detailed stamp behind a framelit cutout to make the image appear to be “sunken” into the card. Using different metallic embossing powders is a fun touch to this different card. I can’t wait to play around with this technique and other bundles! What bundle do you have that you think would work well with this technique?

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 7 – Weather Together

The next card in my Clean & Quick Cards Series is this easy, white embossed present card with a simple sentiment. This card is VERY clean with just a few elements that really make it stand out.

With minimal supplies this card could be replicated with a variety of stamp sets and materials. Using this format, you could make a card for just about any reason in a matter of minutes!

I’m a huge fan of white embossing on a darker colored base, and the Crumb Cake base on this card is absolutely perfect for this technique! The glitter enamel dots give a pop of color and can easily be changed out for pearls or rhinestones to keep it neutral.

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
