Welcome to the Team Stamp It Fall Themed Blog Hop and Giveaway! We have an awesome kit for one lucky winner this month so read through to the end to find out how to enter. And don’t forget to visit the other blogs participating in the hop to get more entries. Here is what I came up with.
I decided to highlight Stampin’ Emboss Powder in copper for my cards today. Copper is a great compliment to fall colors and can really give an ordinary project a lot of impact! For this first card I thought I would see if I could heat emboss with the help of a textured embossing folder. I chose the pretty Petal Burst folder which I opened and then applied Versa Mark ink to the side that has the raised areas between the petals. Then I carefully placed my piece of Shimmery White Cardstock in the folder and ran it through the Big Shot. Here is a picture after adding and heat setting the copper embossing powder. It did move a little and got powder in areas I didn’t want it but I decided not to worry too much because I was planning to go over the entire panel with ink.
The next step was to add color with Stamping Sponges. I chose Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. I lightly patted the sponge on the top of the ink pad and then worked in a circular motion from the outside in, starting slightly off the edge of the paper. This worked great and it was quick and easy do. I wanted to stick with the copper theme so I heat embossed one of the leaf images from Vintage Leaves on Black Cardstock and cut it out with the Big Shot. I chose a simple greeting from Jar of Love for both cards.
On the second card I wanted to keep it a little more simple so I grabbed a card from the Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection for the background. The leaf is heat embossed and cut out from a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock that I sponged with the same colors of ink as the first card. I love the way this turned out and will definitely be trying this technique again.
Bonus Project! For this card I heat embossed the wreath image from Circle of Spring on Crumb Cake cardstock. I used the same four colors as in the above cards but applied the ink to the image with Blender Pens.
I also added Versa Mark ink to the edges of the square panel and heat embossed with the copper powder. This can be an eye-catching alternative to just adding another cardstock mat. The larger panel has been stamped with the Hardwood background stamp in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and matted with Rich Razzleberry cardstock. The card base is Old Olive.
