Embossing With Cover Die

Hello Everyone it’s been a while I updated my blog post. Today I have this fun technique to share with you which a lot of card-makers already know but maybe haven’t used in a while. But for someone new into card-making this can be a totally new technique. The technique of embossing with cover die. I am guest designing for The Flower Challenge #52 for the month of January and this month’s theme is Embossing.

And here is my card.

I got super excited when Simon Says Stamps released the Diecember Release this December. Yes I spelled it right it’s Diecember. So, Diecember is the release of all these beautiful dies from different companies. I picked a few fun ones. To create a fun background I used Chunky Hearts Cover die. this project to cis called

The Technique

The technique is using your metal cutting dies with the embossing sandwich in your die cutting machine. That is using the soft squishy mat instead of your regular cutting plates. With this technique the die does not cut through the card stock but just leaves an impression on it. I then cut the panel to be 3 and a quarter by 4 and a half inches.

I then added color on the raised hearts with the help of Distressed Oxide ink in Spun Sugar and blending brush from Taylored Expression.

The Focus

Even though the background was extra special, I still wanted the focus of this card to be my floral clusters.

I stamped the two flowers from the Maker Forte stamp set designed by talented Alex Syberia on watercolored cardstock using Versamark Clear watermark in and embossed with Wow White Embossing Powder. This beautidul flowers are watercolored using Karin marker in color Cherise.

Then I stamped the leaves on vellum using the same sticky ink and embossed using wow gold embossing powder. I then fussy cut the flowers and the leaves with the help of scissors.

Since I love dimension on my cards, I popped some flowers using foam tape and some directly on the panel with liquid glue. Same with the leaves.

The Sentiment

For the sentiment of this card, I stamped one of the sentiment that reads “You’re the best ” which is included in the stamp set on a matching color card stock strip and embossed with the same gold embossing powder.

For the final finishing touch I added some pale pink sequins from my stash in the card.

I added this panel on an A2 card base using strips of 3M foam tape at the back.

This finishes my card. Hope this inspires you to create projects using your cover dies.

Hugs

Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Reselase and Thank You card

Hello and Welcome to my blog. Today’s post consists of the card that I made using Simon Says Stamp Stamptember release. I ordered this stamp set on the first day of the release. But unfortunately, it arrived around the beginning of the third week. But as they all say better late than never. I was dancing with joy when I received it in the mail that day. Because these stamps are all limited edition. You won’t be able to purchase it after the stock is over.

This is a big stamp set with one large flower cluster, a couple of other flowers and some leaves with some beautiful sentiments.

Background:

I repeatedly stamped a panel of Neenah Solar white cardstock 110 lb with one of the small flower images from Simon Says Stamp Stamptember stamp set called Beautiful Day 2 with Versamark ink. Changed the position of the flowery each time to create like an organic pattern. Embossed those with Gold Embossing powder. I have been into ink blended backgrounds lately. So I picked distressed oxide inks from Ranger. One was Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers. Got to love how the distressed oxide inks blend so smoothly.

The Focal Image:

To create the focal image I stamped one of the flowers with the stem image from the stamp set with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. Which was then colored using Distressed Inks in colors Seedless Preserve and Lucky Clover. Using the Watercolor brush with a simple flat wash of colors. Then I added it with foam tape on the background panel.

The Sentiment:

The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I stamped and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black strips of cardstock. Cut into banners and mounted with foam tapes on the panel.
