SC 009/11…

Anyone for Embossing?  Heat Embossing, ie.  Yep, another week & another new challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations

As well as the sketch provided, I thought it would be a great opportunity to dig out those Heat Tools & to do a little Heat Embossing.  How long is it since you have used your Heat Gun?  I know it has been some time for me.  With all the new products coming out from Stampin’ Up!, we seem to forget about our favourites sometimes.

Base Card – Pumpkin Pie – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm – once scored & folded in half
Layer 1 – Early Expresso – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 5/8 x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – Early Expresso – 4 1/2″ x 2″ or 11.5cm x 5cm
Layer 4 – Whisper White – 4 3/8″ x 1 7/8″ or 11cm x 4.5cm

Layer 6 – Whisper White – 1 3/8″ x 2 7/8″ or 3cm x 7cm

Close-Up of Greeting…

I adhered the DSP to piece of Early Expresso using Snail Adhesive & set aside.

I rubbed my Embossing Buddy over both pieces of Whisper White Cardstock, stamped my image using first Versamark, then Early Expresso Ink, stamped direct onto the longer piece of Whisper White Cardstock, poured Clear Embossing Powder over the top & heat set with my Heat Tool.  I adhered this piece to the longer piece of Early Expresso Cardstock.

Close-Up – Double Bow & Pearl…


I inked my image in Early Expresso Ink, stamped off onto a scrap of paper & then around the edges of the small piece of Whisper White Cardstock, before embossing my greeting/sentiment in Early Expresso Ink.  This piece was adhered to another smaller piece of Early Expresso Cardstock.

I adhered a piece of Satin Ribbon along the bottom half of the longer embossed Whisper White piece, adhered to DSP, then to the base card, tied a double bow, attached a Flower Brad & a Basic Pearl to the centre. 



The sentiment cardstock piece was adhered across the top using Snail Adhesive & SU Dimensionals.

??????Basic Pearls were applied randomly over the embossed images.
