Silhouette Stamping and Embossing

One way to create effortless cards is within ink blending and paired with white space, it can make great CAS cards. I have 3 CAS cards for you that are so easy to make and you could make many different designs with this simple technique. Solid creature stamps like this set from PinkFresh Studios are perfect for Silhouette stamping and heat embossing, useful for making quick cards in a hurry that look effortless. Now, go raid your stash and see what stamps you could use for Silhouette stamping and embossing!

Silhouette Stamping and Embossing

Silhouette Stamping and Embossing - Colourful sunset

To start off, die-cut a circle out of masking paper. Now make sure there is plenty of space around the circle to protect your card when you use it as we will be ink blending.  The masking paper from Inka-dinka-doo can be used several times, so you can use one masks for all three cards!

For the first card, we are going to make a very dramatic summer nights sky for the background. Using a selection of blue, purple peach and yellow ink blend from the lightest colour at the bottom up to the darkest colour towards the top. To get a good blend, make sure you go back between the colours. 

Once this is complete, remove the mask for a lovely clean crisp look. Next, using black onyx ink, stamp the fox from the set offset to one side of the circle. In addition, stamp a selection of the floral inside the circle. If the stems don’t quite join up to the edge, use a black fine liner to extend the lines.

Make sure the panel is dry before stamping a few of the butterflies in embossing ink and cover with gold powder before heat setting. Stamp a sentiment from the set in black ink and foam mount the panel onto a white card base. Lastly, adhere a few sequins to finish the card off. 

Silhouette Stamping and Embossing - Fresh Sky

For this second card, use a selection of soft and bright blues to create a fresh blue sky. 

Stamp the elephant, a balloon and one of the start clusters in black ink, trailing the stars across the star. Make sure this is dry before stamping a few more stars in embossing ink to heat set in gold powder. Again, if you miss aligning the balloon up with the elephant trunk extend the line with a black fine liner. 

Stamp the sentiment in black in underneath the elephant and again embellish with sequins, adhering with Gina K Connect glue. Foam mount this onto a white card base, leaving a 1/8 inch border. 

Silhouette Stamping and Embossing - Dramatic Night Sky

For this card, create a dark moody night sky to allow the embossing to pop. Ink blend a selection of blues across the circle. Towards the top of the circle, ink blend black into the blue to darken the colour and create a more moody look. 

Next, stamp the owl in embossing ink along with a selection of stars and heat emboss this in gold. Stamp the sentiment below the circle offset to one side. To draw the eye through the card, stamp clusters of the stars around the sentiment in the same direction of the stars in the circle. 

Again, embellish with sequins and adhere these down with Connect glue. Lastly, foam mount the panel onto a white card base.
