Embossing Class

I held an embossing class with a wonderful group of ladies. Two of the projects are shown below. One of the cards (not shown) is a gift card using next month's Stamp of the Month, Tender Tags, which I will post on June 1 for the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. It will make a perfect teacher or graduation gift so check back. I will post the 3-D project we did this weekend.

This For You card is an example of using a sponging tool to "pop out" a clear embossed image. We stamped the flower onto Colonial White cardstock and then shaded around the flower using Taffy and Sorbet ink.

CTMH Supplies:
Cardstock - Colonial White, Cranberry
Stamp Sets - Delight in Everything, Say it in Style
Clear embossing powder

red crystal
10” Sorbet ribbon

The Aspiration card is an asian themed card on which they embossed the flowers with Red Dragon EP and the sentiment in Black EP. I used nestabilities dies to pre-cut the ovals.

  1. Both cards are beautiful. I really like using that embossing technique. I used it with the large butterfly from the Butterfly Wings stamp set and was very pleased with the affect.
