A Little Love

Hello crafty friends, how are we all? I hope alls well in your crafty worlds. This month's challenge is all about our favourite embossing techniques so here's my inspiration..... There are so many great embossing techniques that it's very difficult to choose a favourite. In the end I went for a simple resist technique around the edges of my card. I stamped hearts from the Layered Hearts Stamp Set and embossed them with Opaque Bright White and Avocado powders. I then spritzed the card with water and carefully added distress inks to build up the colour. I couldn't resist adding some sparkle and added a strip of double-sided tape through the centre with Sparkles in Jade sprinkled on top. Finally I added a Big Words sentiment using Iris powder on top. I hope you like it and best of luck with the challenge! Sarah xxx

Spring Egg Shrine | Favourite Embossing Techniques

Hi everyone, It's Fran here with you today. My latest project takes on the theme of the month, favourite embossing techniques. I have showcased a couple of mine in this Spring themed egg shrine, complete with the sweetest tiny bird and nest. Read on to find out what they are! The project started out with a plain papier mache egg decoration which I attached to a 3D metal cake mould tin via a cotton reel. I glued a selection of paper flowers on top of the egg, then added flowers and painted all with chalk paint. For my first favourite technique I stamped a honeycomb design stamp from WOW!'s Hearts & Twine set with the Ultra Slow Drying clear ink pad and sprinkled with Clear Gloss embossing powder then melted with a heat tool.  Next I sprayed gold mica spray ink over to create a resist effect with the clear embossing on the surface of the egg. Into the the wet spray I added Rose Gold embossing powder onto the top of the egg and melted to g

Susanne's Favourite Embossing Technique

Hi everyone! Our April theme is "Your favourite embossing technique"! That's really easy for me, because this is my most used technique. Embossing resist! I LOVE to use Brushos on a embossed background. I used the " Hearts & Twine " stamp set and embossed the circles with clear gloss powder on watercolour cardstock. As I wanted the heart to stand out, I used Memento Luxe Love Letter instead of clear embossing ink. I wet the background and sprinkled some Brusho Sea Green on top. The Birthday comes with the "Just Sayings" stamp set. I stamped it with StazOn Emerald City randomly onto my card. I cut the "happy" with a CUTplorations die and covered it with Salsa Embossing Glitter. Finally I adhered it with foam dots to my card. Thank you for stopping by today. xx Susanne. Supplies: WOW!

  Hello everybody, this is Laurence(laury55) to share my favorite technique, or at least one of my favorite techniques as I love to use embossing powder in different ways. First use your stamp with your embossing pad and WOW clear Gloss embossing powder. You may now use your brush with gelatos, watercolor or distress ink in one or different colors. The melted powder will act as a resist.     This technique works well with a large stamp or a smaller one that is repeated on your background. I used a stamp of the Wall Art  set and stamped a few times. The flowers are heat embossed with   WOW Vanilla White. I used double sided adhesive and a die "hello", removed the paper and covered the die cut with WOW Sparkles Jade. I hope you will be inspired and show us your favorite technique with embossing powder!
