Do you remember when you first fell in love with stamping? I do … it was when I saw the magic of heat embossing. I couldn’t get enough … and I still emboss on almost every card I make.
After many years, my old embossing gun was ready to kick the can … so I recently upgraded to the Milwaukee Embossing Gun (the one Jennifer Maguire uses and recommends), and I love it. It heats so quickly and evenly … and makes embossing even more fun.
One of my favorite embossing techniques is emboss resist … it’s like an extra dose of creative magic. For this card, I used Versamark Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, and Hero Arts Snowflake background … together wtih Hero Arts Silver Spray Mist.
When I spray, I always stamp my image on a full piece of cardstock, because I find the *over-spray* that happens around my image to be very beautiful. For this card, I stamped my Lowercase Christmas Greetings (this is one of my favorite Hero Arts sets … and it’s a steal for only $8.00).
I’m entering this card in the Snow Challenge at CAS*ology, because while it is inky, it still has clean design elements.
Here’s another holiday design featuring the same great Lowercase Christmas Greetings stamp set. This time I punched lots of branches from silver glitter designer paper and made a holiday wreath … decorated with silver stars & sequins.
