Hi Stampers. I hope you are enjoying your weekend and experiencing some “Wonderful Moments”. I’m happily stamping in my studio preparing for my heat embossing class this week. We will be using three different heat embossing techniques in this class. The card on today’s blog is the blackboard technique. You heat emboss in white embossing powder on black card stock and it looks like a blackboard – hence the name. 🙂
The three techniques we will do are the tarnished foil technique, the blackboard technique and the Josephs coat technique. I will share the other two cards in upcoming posts. Be sure to come back to see how those are done.
This card starts out with a Blushing Bride card base, 11″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next up was a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS. Before adhering this layer to the card, I rubbed it with the embossing buddy. I used Versamark ink to stamp the bride from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in the lower right corner. The flower from the Better Together stamp set was stamped in the upper left corner in Versamark ink. I then poured white stampin’ emboss powder over both, shook off excess and melting it with my heat tool. After that cooled a little, I used a ruler and a white marker to draw lines around the outer edge of the black layer (as seen in photo).
I adhered the Basic Black layer to my card base with snail adhesive and headed over to my Big Shot. I die cut the wavy banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelit Dies out of Blushing Bride CS. The circles were cut using the Layering Circles Framelit Dies out of Whisper White and Blushing Bride CS. The Layering Circle Framelit set is a great combination of circles and scalloped circles in a bunch of sizes that layer over one another beautifully. I stamped the “for the bride” sentiment from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in Blushing Bride ink onto the top Whisper White circle. These pieces were layered onto the card front using snail adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the interior of the card, I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS and stamped the sentiment and swirls from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in Blushing Bride ink. This was adhered to the inside with snail adhesive.
I’m thrilled with how it came out and I hope you are too! If you want to make one of these cards for yourself, I invite you to come to a local class or order my “class to go” option or order the supplies from my store to make your own. What ever you decide to do, I hope it’s stress free! Remember – “There’s NO STRESS in stamping”.
