Hi Stampers. I have a fun technique for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Embossing Mats.  They are kind of a sleeper item in the catalog. The mats can easily be over looked if you don’t know what they are and how awesome they are! Look in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog on page 221, under Big Shot Accessories.

This card starts out with a Basic Black card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The next layer is a 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ layer of Basic Gray CS followed by a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Real Red CS. I used a sentiment stamp from the Geared Up Garage stamp set to stamp “you jump start my heart” all over the Real Red layer of CS in Real Red ink.  I used my Stamparatus so that the placement was evenly spaced, but could be stamped randomly by hand if you wish.

The heart was die cut on the Big Shot using the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies out of Silver Foil paper. At the same time, I used the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies to die cut the car emblem out of Silver Foil paper and Whisper White CS. I used the Silver Foil outer part and Whisper White inner part to create the element in the lower right corner.  Using the same sentiment that I used on the background, I stamped onto the Whisper White inner part using Basic Gray ink. The layers were adhered to the card base using snail adhesive and the car emblem was adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I used the Big Shot embossing mats and the large gears (cutting) die from the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies create the dry embossed gears in the Silver Foil heart.  You can see more about how I did that in the following video:
