Video: XOXO Cover Plate & Emboss Resist

Dec 27, 2021 Mindy Eggen

Welcome friends! Mindy here with you today to share inspiration using the XOXO Cover Plate and an emboss resist background.

I have a video walking through this process that you can view down below or HERE on the Hero Arts YouTube channel.

Cover plates dies are a lot of fun because you can use them for shakers, hot foil with them, die cut inlay technique or add any background design behind it. I am going for a background design using the All My Heart Peek-A-Boo stamp set.

I stamped the hearts image in Embossing & Watermark ink and heat embossed with White Satin Pearl embossing powder.

I am using Reactive inks in Taffy, Berry Smoothie and Thistle to ink blend over my background with blending brushes.

I'll use the Nesting Rectangles die to cut out my XOXO panel and also the background panel.

I also cut a piece of Pitch Black cardstock just slightly larger than my die cut panel to add a black border.

To tie the black into the card more and make the sentiment pop, I am heat embossing this sentiment from the Signpost Stamp & Cut XL set. This sentiment is stamped in Unicorn Pigment ink and sprinkled with White Detail embossing powder which is my favorite way to do white heat embossing.

After adding my panels to a side-folding card base, I will add the sentiment to the front with black foam squares.

Hope you enjoyed today's inspiration!
