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.

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″

Materials:

Petal Palette Split Coloring Technique Card

Okay, it’s no surprise how much I am digging on Petal Palette. I really hope you’re a fan of this stamp set, because I’ve made a couple projects with it so far (Wedding Card and a Top Secret Project TBA), and I have a LOT more planned. I think the split coloring technique looks awesome with this set!

If you’re not a fan of the basic black strip across the card, you could certainly use ribbon. That would look LOVELY! I can just picture this card in all sorts of color combinations!
What color would you use?

Measurements:

Rich Razzleberry Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Basic Black Strip: 1/2″ x 5-1/2″

SERIES: Tag #1 Snowflake Sentiments

Welcome to my 3 part video series for my Christmas Tags this year! Here’s our first tag using the fun Snowflake Sentiments Bundle. I love heat embossing with metallics and the silver really goes well with the Smoky Slate background! The edgelits in this bundle are just stunning, and I love how it adds a whimsical touch to the snowflakes!

Ombre Heat Emboss Technique

Yes, today is Wednesday. I know, I normally air Melissa’s Kre8tions Live! on my YouTube channel. No, I am not going live today. I’m in the process of moving, so I’m bringing you a regular, good ol’ fashioned tutorial!

This is a technique I learned from watching our CEO Sara Douglass at OnStage in Brisbane, AU! No, I wasn’t actually there. But as a Demonstrator, I was able to watch the replays online! Woohoo! If you want these perks too, ask me how to get in on the fun!

This is such a fun technique, I’ve decided to call it the Ombre technique, though I don’t know if it has a real name. . . It makes such a gorgeous sentiment though!
