Tropical Emboss Resist

Tropical Emboss Resist

wDSC_0901.jpg

I did a lesson on heat embossing and the emboss-resist technique in my course through the Haddonfield Adult School.  I first taught this lesson in the fall and created a sample (below) with a fall feel to it.  This course is also offered in the winter/spring so I thought I’d come up with an additional sample with a tropical feel for those students dreaming of getting past winter (we are expecting snow again today in Cherry Hill) and on to warmer weather!

Here was the fall sample:

Spring Tree Note Card (and a few variations)

Spring Tree Note Card (and a few variations)

In my last post, I shared a project I created to demonstrate die cutting, masking, and sponging for the Card Making Class I am teaching.  I also created some spring themed cards as options.

Here is one with slightly different colors:

For both these samples, I used “Meadow” Flower Soft to add a bit of texture and dimension.

We had done this same card design in the fall using “Autumn” Flower Soft and fall colors:

I also tried a sample using “Polar White” Flower Soft as snow, although I think I’d like it better if the “snow” were whiter/brighter.

Winter Napkin Card

Winter Napkin Card

Here is another card I made using my Mini Minc Foil Applicator to adhere a decorative paper napkin to card stock to use as a background panel.  The napkin creates a textured panel that looks and feels like cloth, and there are so many different napkins (prints) from which to choose!  (HERE are a few samples I made earlier with a Santa napkin.)

To adhere the napkin to a piece of card stock, you first separate and discard the one (or two) plain layers from the top printed layer of the napkin.  Then, you sandwich a piece of cling wrap between a piece of card stock and the top layer of the napkin (all trimmed to the same size), and run it through your Minc (on the highest setting).  The panel can then be trimmed to fit your card project.  (HERE is a video showing you how this technique is done.)

I added a die cut greeting and some yarn, gold cord and a metallic snowflake charm to the panel to finish it off.

This clean and simple thank you note features the Hero Arts “Snowflakes and Ornament” fancy die (#DI528), a thank you die from Gina Marie Designs (retired?), and Recollections printable glitter card stock.

You can see the sparkle better in the photo below:

This die set also comes with an ornament die that can be used alone or “around” the snowflake frame.  You can see a pretty sample of the ornament die cut combined with the snowflake frame HERE (halfway through Darnell’s post).

Silhouette Daisies

Silhouette Daisies

This CAS card features the daisies from the “Various Verses” stamp set from Gina K Designs (retired?) and a greeting from the “Painted Harvest” set from Stampin’ Up.  Both were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on white card stock matted on black.    A sponged background of Gina K  Ocean Mist and Applemint inks added a pop of color.

Using the same layout, the same mask for the sponging, and the same daisy stamp, I switched up the colors and made a birthday card as well.

On this version, the images were stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink on white card stock.  (The greeting on this one is also from the “Various Verses” set.)  The ink for sponging and the card stock used was Gina K Peach Bellini and Kraft.
