Hi friends,

Svitlana is here. Today I want to share two cards made using purely heat embossing.

I’m a big fan of embossing and when an embossing idea comes to my mind I don’t hesitate to implement it.

For my first card I used Indoor Garden Stamp Set. It’s an awesome set with beautiful and stylish images. This is a multi layer one, but you totally mix and match layers.

To start off first cut a panel out of Jet Black Cardstock of 3.75 and 5 inches. Currently I’m loving this size of a card panel in general, which creates a quarter inch margin with an A2 card base. But other than that when I’m working with a dark cardstock I like placing such panel onto a white card base and a margin of this width kind of tones down the darkness of the cardstock.

Next I went ahead and white embossed several images from the set using Pure White Embossing Powder. For images which don’t have a full outline image I just used one layer to kind of finish off an image.

For the sentiment I took one from Succulents Stamp Set and also white embossed it.

Finally I foam mounted the panel onto a Solar White card base. And added several white liquid droplets to accentuate the card.

The second card was much more fun for me ;) I saw the similar pattern on a throw pillow and wanted to replicated it.

And before heat setting it I grabbed a small brush and brushed off the powder from the middle of the leaf. And then I went ahead and heat set it.

I did the same for several more leaves, gold heat embossing them to fill the panel.

I was struggling how to make a sentiment and using a black stripe was my first thought. But it would be kind of off the rest of the card since I didn’t have any black. So to make the design more cohesive I opted to use a Jet Black card base.

Then I was deciding the color for the sentiment. I didn’t want to have it in gold. Since I already had enough gold and also gold embossing on black wouldn’t look very vivid. So I went with white, as I already had the white card base to match.

These are just a couple of tips of how to introduce a new color to a card.

Hope you like my ideas and tips. Have a wonderful week!
