2 Stamping Techniques-Watercoloring and Heat Embossing

You've Got This Stampin' Up!


Hello Friends,

Here's another take on the card that I made on Monday.  The focal point has been changed, but it is the same basic card.  For today's card I used the lovely flower from the You've Got This Stamp Set with 2 Stamping Techniques-Watercoloring and Heat Embossing.

You've Got This

About this Card

Love the look of embossing and watercoloring.  To make my Flower, I first heat embossed the whole image (You've Got This Stamp Set) with gold embossing powder onto Shimmery White Card Stock.  Then, I watercolored with Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive Ink.  What a  gorgeous flower!  I also embossed the splatters (Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set) and the "You've Got This".

The Soft Sky stamped background is a stamp from the You've Got this stamp set.  And the washi tape isn't washi tape at all.  It's a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set.  Love the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  It's the perfect accessory to so many card.  I will be sad to see it go.  It's on the Stampin' Up! Retirement List.

Card Making in 3 Simple Steps

Card Making in 3 Simple Steps

Hello Friends,

Love this sweet encouraging card.  And the's super easy to make.   Plus, there's a little magic involved.  At least, it seems that way watching the gold embossing powder turn to shiny, smooth gold  right before your eyes.  I been stamping a long time and the magic of heat embossing never grows old.

Card Making in 3 Simple  Steps

First, I stamped a Soft Sky background with the background stamp from the the You've Got This Stamp Set.  I also stamped a piece of "Sweet Sugarplum Washi Tape" with a stamp from the retiring Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  I'm really going to miss Gorgeous Grunge when it retires.

Next, go over the whole thing with your embossing buddy.  You don't want gold powder sticking where it shouldn't.  With VersaMark Ink stamp the splatters (Gorgeous Grunge stamp set) and "You've Got This" (That's from the You've Got This stamp set, of course).  Cover with Gold Embossing Powder and shake off excess.  Heat Emboss and watch the magic.

Cut the flower and leave pieces with the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies and your Big Shot.  I used Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive, Whisper White Card Stock, plus Gold Foil Paper.  Tip: For a more 3-D look, try curling your petals a bit with your Bone Folder, then pop up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Did I mention that the Botanical Builder Framelits are 1/2 Price?  Scoop them up before they are gone.  They are available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!
