Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I was working on Valentine treats using the January Paper Pumpkin. 24 containers makes it easy to share. I also made my Valentine Sugar Cookies, always a hit and I even had time to do some crafting.
Today’s project is based on the challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. I decided to try a technique I saw on Pinterest by Melissa Kerman. I couldn’t find the directions so I tried to figure it out on my own and I will share that with you today. You can never have too many Masculine cards!
Curious? Here’s my card:
Stamp: Nailed It, Balloon Adventures, Teeny Tiny Wishes Paper: Black, Silver Foil, White Ink: Stazon, Versamark, Memento Accessories: Silver EP, Copper EP, Build It Framelits, Hexagon TIEF, Urban Underground embellishments, Classic Label Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
Here is the challenge that inspired my card:
Okay now for the Impressions of Tarnished Foil Technique and Heat Embossing:
- Add Stazon Ink to paper on 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of silver foil paper and let it dry. Streaks are good.
- Add Versamark to the top portion of the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
- Add the silver foil to the embossing folder (right side up) and run through the Big Shot and quickly add Silver (or Gold) embossing powder to the panel. Heat emboss.
- Using a sponge dauber and versamark lightly and randomly over the embossed panel. Add Copper embossing powder. If there are areas that look heavy, just use a paint brush to whisk some of the extra embossing powder away. Heat Emboss.
This may not be exactly how it is done but it worked okay for me. Give it a try and let me know if you have ideas on how to do this differently. Always looking to improve. 🙂
I cut a portion of the panel for today’s project and have extra for another card.
