Lots of excitement today over at AAA Cards as we start a new challenge and introduce six new team members! YAY!
I have a bit of a thing for messing up when I use heat embossing, but it always looks so cool on cards I see around blogland that it's a technique I'm working on improving.
Here's my card with a quote thats seems very relevant:
I made sure I used one of those dusting pads before I stamped the quote using versamark ink and heat embossing it in sparkling white. At the same time I stamped and embossed the flower and stem. The technique might have been out of my comfort zone, but to compensate I stuck with my favourite colours and smooshed distress ink over the embossing.
I then die cut the whole thing with a stitched rectangle, but changed my mind and re-cut it with a smaller rectangle, if you look carefully you'll see the double row of stitching on the left that this caused. I then used a small spiro circle die for the flower head and raised it on pads for a little dimension.
Stamps: Visible Image, Thank You set & Take Chances
Inks: Ranger distress, picked raspberry, wilted violet, cracked pistachio; Versamark, clear
Embossing: WOW!, Sparkling Snow
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles; Xcut, spiro circle
