Embossing is a wonderful technique to add to your scrapbooking repertoire. Shelli Gardner shares her technique.
Materials and Tools:
crystal clear embossing powder
embossing heat tool
batik, All Around Alphabet and Alphablocks stamp sets
Ultrasmooth Vanilla, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Only Orange cardstock
Tempting Turquoise, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Only Orange craft pads
1. Stamp a border, flower accent and title with the VersaMark pad on Ultrasmooth Vanilla cardstock.
2. Liberally sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped area, then shake off excess powder.
3. Heat the embossing powder until it melts, then let it cool completely.
4. Tear edges of the border and flower accents, then cut out title letters. Use sponge daubers to add color over the embossed areas. Note: the embossed areas will resist the color.
5. Create a subtle border by repeatedly stamping the border stamp with VersaMark ink, down the side of the Ruby Red 12 x 12 inch cardstock. Attach embossed border to the page.
6. Crop and layer photos onto corresponding colors of cardstock, and then attach to the page. Attach torn out flower to page.
7. Using the All-Around Alphabet, stamp 'Basking In' with VersaMark ink at the top of the page. Mount the title blocks beneath the stamped words.
