Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.
This Week's Challenge...
~ Embossing ~
~ Dry or Heat ~
Here is my Design Team project...
I wanted to have both types of embossing on my project today, so I had to think of how to incorporate dry and heat. It did not take long to decide and come up with an idea. I also knew I wanted to use my oxide inks with white embossing powder since they always looks great together. The key would be to find the right stamp.
The flower is an oldie by Inkadinkadoo. I prefer to use my older stamps with VersaMark ink just in case there is any residue. I heat embossed the flower on white cardstock with white embossing powder. Then I used three shades of Tim Holtz oxides: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, and abandoned coral to add some color.
The yellow card stock was first cut with the stitched rectangle using my Cuttlebug (C plate) and then the circle was cut out from the center. Lastly, the cardstock was placed in the the swiss dots embossing folder and it went through the Cuttlebug (B plate) creating raised dots.
The stamped sentiment (included with a magazine subscription) was heat embossed on vellum. As long as you move the heat gun back and forth, the vellum will not warp.
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Embossing" challenge. Our sponsor this week is Leslie from our very our DCD Design Team and it is a CTMH stamp set.
