Colour blocking with heat embossing (Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway $200 in Total Prizes)

Colour blocking is a great way to create a bold card – it also is a great background to heat emboss on. I used a colour block background with the new Paint-a-flower: Lotus stamp, released today, showing you an alternative way to use a detailed colouring stamp like this. You can use any colour scheme you like, but I was drawn to purples for this card. I trimmed the panel down so I could add a little more texture to the base as well! Colour blocking with heat embossing is a fun easy cardmaking technique, so let’s get started!

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Jenny Colacicco. You can always start at the beginning of the hop over at the Altenew Card Blog here.

Colour blocking with heat embossing

Colour blocking with heat embossing: creating the panel

Trim 1/4″ strips of cardstock in varying colours. Here I used the New Purples Colour Gradient cardstock from Altenew. Next, add wide double-sided adhesive to a scrap piece of card. 

Colour blocking with heat embossing

Start adding your strips of card to the panel, changing the colours for variation. For a fun look, go dark to light for an ombre gradient. Once complete, heat embossing in WOW! Opaque Bright white embossing powder the Paint-a-flower: Lotus stamp set onto the background. 

Colour blocking with heat embossing: adding texture

To add some texture, dry emboss a card panel with the Altenew Diamond Starts 3D embossing folder. Add this to a card panel, before adding the heat embossed panel onto the front having trimmed this down. 

Lastly, finish the card off by adding a stamped sentiment from the Paint-a-flower: Lotus stamp and a few white Nuvo drops.
