Two Challenges, Embedded Embossing and More!
I wanted to create a card using the colors from this week’s CCMC177 Create with Connie and Mary Challenge along with the Stamping411 SSC231 Sketch Challenge. Both sites have excellent Design Teams and other entries that provide plenty of inspiration each week!
Stamp the floral spray from Friends Never Fade using Versamark™ ink onto River Rock cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Navy Embossing Powder (retired) and heat emboss with the Heat Tool. Once the image has cooled, emboss again with the Big Shot™ and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (this creates the Embedded Embossing layer). Mount our homemade Designer Paper onto Night of Navy cardstock.
Also stamp the focal image with Versamark™ ink onto a piece of Lucky Limeade cardstock and again onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock- apply Stampin’ Emboss® Navy Embossing Powder (retired) and heat emboss with the Heat Tool. Once cooled, cut the flower out from the Whisper White embossed piece, color the center with a Stampin’ Write River Rock marker and adhere over the Lucky Limeade flower (paper piecing the flower in the image).
Another alternative to the Navy Embossing Powder (EP) would be to ink the stamp with Night of Navy Craft ink and heat emboss with Clear EP, or ink with Versamark™ ink, then ink with Night of Navy Classic Ink and heat emboss with Clear EP.
Using a Brayer, apply Night of Navy ink onto the smooth interior side of the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and emboss a piece of Lucky Limeade. Adhere this layer to Night of Navy and River Rock.
With the Big Shot™ and the Designer Frame (rectangular) EF, emboss a piece of Lucky Limeade and Whisper White. Carefully cut around the edges and lightly sponge with a Sponge Dauber.
Layer the card according to the sketch, adhere the 5/8” White Satin Ribbon Bow and mount onto the Night of Navy card base to finish off the card.
