Sparkly Colored Heat-Embossing

by Jessica Frost-Ballas September 19, 2019 13 Comments

Good morning! Jess here with a sparkly way to add some color to your heat-embossing!

I just love the new Birch Forest Background Cling for a frosty winter card! And I really love that the actual stamp is of the sky and the outline of the trees, not the trees themselves. So to start I placed the stamp on the lid of my MISTI so I'd be able to stamp a few times and still get a crisp image. I started by inking the bottom of the stamp with Cornflower ink and stamped it onto an A2 panel of Hero Hues Dove White cardstock. Next I cleaned off my stamp and then inked the middle with Navy ink and stamped again. Finally I cleaned off the stamp and inked the top with Intens-ified Black ink and stamped again. At this point I had the three ombre colors of my winter sky.

After carefully cleaning my stamp (this cleaner is the best for getting ink off stamps!) I reinked the entire stamp with the new Clear Embossing and Watermark ink and stamped over my ombre sky. And while the embossing ink was still wet I heat-embossed it it with Sparkle Embossing Powder. I love how it looks like you used a colored embossing powder and you could easily substitute this technique with any shade of ink to suit your projects!

Next I stamped the sentiment from Winter Forest Animals onto Hero Hues Cherry cardstock and heat-embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I stamped the cardinal from Winter Forest Animals onto Hero Hues Dove White cardstock with Versafine and heat-embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I colored him with Copic markers before fussy-cutting him. I also trimmed my sentiment down to a thin label. To finish my card I adhered the panel to a card base of Hero Hues Nautical cardstock and added my sentiment and cardinal with foam mounting tape. I just love the pops of red amongst all that frosty blue and white and I hope you do, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!

Thank you for including an explanation of how the stamp is made…I assumed it was the trees that would be stamped and wondered how you were able to get the 3 background colors! Love the pop of color the bright cardinal brings!

Very cool card, love the sparkle! I think that is a clever idea on the ombre background, I will have to try it with different colors.

So happy to see what you did with the birch tree. I literally just cut out a bunch yesterday to come up with a Xmas card.
This will definitely give me some ideas what to do. Love your card.

It’s gorgeous Jess, I love this stamp! The idea of using three inks for een ombre effect and than put the stunning glitter embossing powder over it is awesome. Great for the Holidays. Thank you so much for sharing and have a wonderful week.
