Stamping Techniques Blog Hop

Hello!  Welcome to our Focus on Stamping Techniques Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Haley’s Inky Scrapper blog, you are on the right track.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of hoppers here.

For today’s hop, I wanted to talk about heat embossing.  It’s always surprising just how much this simple technique can add to a card.  I had finished up my Kaleidoscope Cardmaking Workshop on the Go and was looking for a project where I could use up some of my leftover pieces.  Here’s what I created:

This technique is so simple but so much fun!  I took the “happiest” part of the sentiment and stamped it using our Versamark ink pad and heat embossed it using our Clear Embossing Powder.  Then I took a sponge dauber and sponged Pixie ink over the top of the image to make it pop out white.  I also used the Pixie ink pad to do some tone-on-tone stamping on the piece of Pixie Cardstock.  My last two steps were using some 3-D Foam Tape to pop up the “happiest” part of the sentiment and using my Journaling Pen to add some “wiggle-squiggle” lines around the pieces to help them to stand out.

Now, hop on over to Michelle’s Show and Tell blog to see what technique she has to show you.
