Embossing on Colored Cardstock


NOTICE: It looks like we’re having a bit of trouble with our InLinkz Link-up on our blog.  It seems to have a mind of its own and disappeared from the side-bar.  However, it found a home on the first day of March here.  The DT are trying to put it back where it came from, but until you see it in the usual place on the top right side, you’ll be able to enter here.

Aloha friends!  Niki G. back playing along with our latest monthly challenge: EMBOSSING!  Join us for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking store!


I wanted to go with a tropical feel using the Hero Arts Layering Paper in Blush for my card. (You could use this for a similar look)  I then stamped out all my flowers using just one of the stamps in the Color Layering Hibiscus stamp set and heat embossing with Versamark ink and Zing! embossing powder in Rouge.  The center of the hibiscus uses Zing! in Butter and the sentiment is from Hero Arts You’re So Kind heat embossed using Zing! in Aqua.


So there ya have it!  A completely embossed design using different colors of embossing powder.  Don’t be afraid to use them on colored card stock for a bigger wow factor!

I hope you’ll join us and have a great rest of the week.

Mahalo for stopping by!!
