Embossing tutorial "Get Well Card"

Good Morning!

I am excited to show you a card I made using different techniques, I wanted to make it bright and a touch of softness so it will have a cheerful calming effect on the receiver that is not feeling so well.

One of the techniques I used was stamping and embossing with this ribbon


To get these effects follow the written tutorial just below the image




  • For the area highlighted in black:  Cut a piece of ribbon to cover area you want this effect. (I used masking tape to hold it in place)
  • Stamped over the ribbon with a waterbased ink, (I used "VERDIGRIS" Antiquites by Ranger) and  gave it a minute  to dry.
  • Keeping the ribbon in place stamp over it again using Watermark resist ink pad ... (Tim Holtz's Watermark resist Dual- Purpose ink pad by Ranger )
  •  Remove the ribbon and  sprinkled genereously with Clear Ultra Thick Embossing Powder  and use an Embossing Heat Gun to melt it.
  • The area highlighted in red you will see I did the same thing with the Doiley only this time I just pressed the doiley into the ink pads.  Voila!!!!!!  Easy Peasy!
Not very straight with the camera so it seems!!! lol

 Today I am playing in a challenge over at Stamp with fun Challenge #71 , The Challenge this week is "Lace Doiley"Join in on the fun!!!!

Have a terrific day.
