Hello, good to see you again. I have a lovely autumnal thanks card for you today. This card features stamps from the A6 Leaves clear stamp set from Colourific. This stamp set has a variety of leaves of different sizes and either as the outline or the bold full stamp. I used this stamp today with a masking and emboss resist technique to create a beautiful decorative panel.
Autumnal Thanks card Process overview
Mark off an area for embossing with masking tape. Stamp a variety of leaves with versamark ink and cover with Pure Platinium embossing powder. A stamping platform is useful as you can leave the leaves in the same position to stamp in ink outside of the masked area. Once you have heat set the powder, remove the masking and reposition over the embossed area. Ink up the leaves with a dark grey ink and stamp. When the masking tape is removed, you will have a continuous stamped image between the ink and embossing.
Position masking tape again, masking off and exposing only the embossed area. Using a blending tool, apply distress oxides in a gradient. When complete, remove the tape and buff the embossing with a dry paper towel. This will remove any excess ink from the embossing.
To finish, add a layered die cut thanks and colour corresponding the sequins. Foam mount this card panel onto an A6 (UK size) black card base with a 1/8″ border.
