July 2014 - Embossed Embossing

Embossed Embossing Technique
Create a beautiful background using Heat Embossing and
Embossing Folders
-Emboss cardstock with your favorite embossing folder. Gently rub your embossing buddy over the piece. The step makes a significant difference in the finished product.

-Ink up brayer with Versamark, use a “gentle” pressure carefully roll the ink onto the raised surfaces of the cardstock. Your goal is to apply ink only to these raised areas.

-Sprinkle embossing powder onto the entire inked surface, tap off excess. Apply heat.

-Trim or die cut the embossed piece to the size needed for you creation.

-Using Tom Bow Glue to glue your embossed piece to your base seems to work better than tape.

Fancy Fold – Lattice Chevron Punch Card

Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Smokey Slate
Paper:  Very Vanilla Tag 2 ¼ x 3 ¾, Blackberry Bliss 1 ¼ x 5 ¼ (2 each), Smokey Slate 5 ¼ x 4 ¼  Blackberry Bliss Tag 2 ½ x 4 ½, Olive Green 1 ¼ x 5 ¼  
Accessories: Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder, In Color Sequins, Dimensions 4 and also 4 halves for the Blackberry Bliss Tag
·        For the Lattice, start at the end of the strip of cardstock and punch both pieces all the way across.
·        Put the 2 pieces on top of each other.
·        Push the points on top of each other, they will be entwined at this point.
·        Push each point up and down.
·        Hold both ends, and pull and push to make different looks.  If you extend the piece as far as it goes will the achieve the look I came up with for today’s card.
·        Move the bottom then to the top to move the two pieces.
·        I used Tom Bow glue, putting drops here and there, you could use tape but I didn’t want it to move once I put it on top of the Olive Green Strip.
That takes care of July, for August we will be making Glitter Napkin Cards.  In fact, I am
