I stamped the flower in embossing ink and then heat embossed with Hero Arts (my new favorite) gold embossing powder.slide02

I painted the flower with my pink and orange Zigs.

I added the sentiment, inking up the stamp with pink and orange inks.

AAA Cards Challenge #47: Spectacular Embossing & an Exciting Announcement

Well Hello! Thanks for visiting today. I’m so excited to have you here because I have a fun announcement to share with you. With this post, I have the honor & privilege of joining the ladies at AAA Cards as one of 3 new members of the AAA Cards Design Team!

AAA new DTThis week’s Challenge#47 is Spectacular Embossing.

Here’s my card:

IMG_0714cropsquare  I am truly “Giving Thanks” to the ladies at AAA Cards for inviting me to be part of their team! I had fun with this card and used a couple of my favorite techniques, sponging/ink-blending and emboss resist. I learned these techniques from Laura Bassen in her “Craftsy” class.

After stamping my image in VersaMark and heat embossing with clear embossing powder, I did some ink blending on top of the butterfly. I really enjoy using this stamp! The sentiment if from PTI’s Scripted stamp set. I highly recommend this set.
