VIDEO | Stencil Heat Embossing | Pantone Color Of The Year 2021

Try stencil heat embossing three ways featuring the Pantone Color Of The Year 2021. Ultimate Gray and Lightening yellow symbolize strength and hopefulness, just what we need to ring in 2021.

All the details to create these stencil heat embossing card designs are in this short card making video tutorial. Watch here or in HD on YouTube. While you're there I'd love it if you like, subscribe, and share with friends.

Pantone Color Of The Year 2021

Pantone is hit the reset button and graced us with inspirational colors for 2021. For more information on the Pantone Color Of The Year 2021, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, head over to the official Pantone page.

For the yellow in these three handmade cards, I used Lemon Sorbet from Summer Scoops WOW! Trio. This is a gorgeous translucent glitter embossing powder. For a brighter yellow try, Primary Lemon Yellow embossing powder.

To represent Ultimate gray, I used Altenew Silver Stone Crisp Dye Ink for ink blending and Curious Metallic Lustre cardstock. These grays are warmer than Ultimate Gray. You could also use Metallic Silver embossing powder.

Stencil Heat Embossing

Stencil heat embossing is one of the easiest ways to create heat embossed panels. Choosing a glitter embossing powder like, Lemon Sorbet, adds extra sparkle to the background.

Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Peony Bouquet Stencil

Here, I used Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Peony Bouquet Stencil. Peony Bouquet is one of my favorite stencils. I love the arrangement of the flowers and the negative space left in the upper right-hand corner is perfect for small stamped sentiments.

Both of these cards were embossed with Lemon Sorbet embossing powder, but check out how different they look in the close-ups. The glitter has a bit of a silver sheen to it which blends into the Curious Metallic Lustre cardstock. This adds the appearance of more texture to the design.

At first, I didn't like the Lustre cardstock background, but it ended up being my favorite of these three card design ideas. I finished off these cards with Simon Say Stamp + CZ Design Paper Hugs Die and Hugs Die set.

Altenew Scallop Builder Stencil

As you can see above, I didn't allow the gray ink blending to dry all the way before heat embossing. Therefore, the Lemon Sorbet embossing powder stuck to the gray dye ink. To avoid this make sure you allow your panel to air dry or heat set it before applying your embossing powder.

Normally, I would redo the card, but today, I went with it. To finish the card, I die cut Lustre cardstock with Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Hello Dies set and Oyster Gray Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Thanks so much for joining me today. I'd love to know what you think of today's designs. Let me know in the comments below and I'll see you soon with more inspiration.

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme. I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time. I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them. I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid! Here are brief instructions on how to make it: STEP ONE Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles a
