March Stamp Class – Heat Embossed Sympathy Card

By | March 14, 2014

Hi there

I hope my fellow Kiwi’s are ready for the fast approaching cyclone.  We’ve made sure things are secure outside and have our candles ready – just in case.

This is the second card we made on Wednesday night – this one combines a few techniques – dry embossing, heat embossing and watercolouring.

We heat embossed the tree image then used blender pens and ink from the ink pad (squish the ink pad together so that some ink goes onto the lid then used it as a palette).  I find that having the image heat embossed gives it some depth and the colouring is a lot easier.  The card stock is the Core’dinations which we gave a light sanding to expose the core colour.
I even remembered to take a photo of the inside this time!

Supplies:
Stamp Set – Lovely as a Tree, Thoughts and Prayers
Card Stock – Old Olive, Early Espresso Core’dinations, Whisper White
DSP – Polka Dot Parade
Ink – Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
Other – Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Windows Collection Framelits, Stampin Sanding Block, Blender Pens, Sponge, Dimensionals
