To create today’s card I used Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, a free Sale-a-Bration gift when you place a $50 order (before shipping/tax). You’ll receive (12) 12″ x 12″ sheets of these rose gold and silver foil designs. This paper is only available until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last!
I also used the stamp set, Seriously the Best, and embossed the sentiment with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I love the boldness of the sentiments in this set and when they’re embossed, a beautiful focal point is created.
The beauty of this Designer Series Paper is that you can easily add any Stampin’ Up! color to the white areas. I used Lovely Lipstick ink and applied it with a Sponge Dauber. It’s a good idea to take a tissue or a soft cloth and rub it over the surface of the paper after applying color to pick up any ink that’s sitting on top of the raised foil.
How to Heat Emboss
Rub an Embossing Buddy over the surface of your cardstock (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder). Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it. Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image. Shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool for about 10 seconds to minimize warping of your paper. Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen!
