Around The World on Wednesday Blog Hop


This month is a technique challenge...Embossing! 

I do a lot of dry embossing in my card making so I decided to dust off the heat tool and share a card with Heat Embossing! 

I used a brand new bundle I just received called Conversation Bubbles along with Friendly Gnomes.  

Here is my card: 

I stamped and heat embossed the bubbles on Basic White card stock with versa mark ink then added clear embossing powder.  After I heat set the embossing powder I blended inks (Polished Pink, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie) to add some color and interest 

The gnome and mushroom were stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin' Blends

For the greeting, I stamped the images on Basic Black card stock with versa mark ink and then added the white embossing powder. 

A bit of ribbon and this card was complete!

  1. Wonderfully vibrant Shel! Love it. xxx

  2. Such an adorable way to highlight this adorable gnome... love the colors of your Emboss Resist blended background. x

  3. I love this! It's such a cheerful thank you note and the resist turned out beautifully. I love the contrast the black and white greeting lends too.

  4. So very vibrant! I love the way you've done the white on black sentiment. It really pops the white on bright colour bubbles in the background. Great idea!

  5. Very nice card. All in softness. I like the colours used for the background. Thanks for sharing!
