Embossed Cards

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with some embossed cards.


It is so much fun to create 2 different projects when using the same supplies.  I placed assorted acrylic paints from Prima Marketing on a craft mat and then dragged white cardstock through the paint.  This method provides some very different backgrounds for your cards.


I embossed the panels with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder, then lightly inked over the embossed portions with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The ink really highlighted the embossing.   I matted the panel with Bazzill Whirlypop cardstock, then wrapped May Arts ribbon around the panel and inserted a Tim Holtz Memo Pin in the knot. A sentiment from Stamping Bella - Lolly and her Brolly - was added.


I used the same Crafter's Companion embossing folder for my second card and also lightly inked over the embossed portions with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.   I matted the panel with Bazzill Whirlypop cardstock.  To create a vertical card, I wrapped May Arts ribbon vertically, then inserted a Tim Holtz Memo Pin  in the ribbon.  I used a sentiment from another Stamping Bella stamp set -  Abigail the Artist, adding it to a Tim Holtz memo Pin.

Why not try this technique?  It opens us so many possibilities.

Thank you for visiting.

Steph
