I can’t believe how limited this stamp set is! It’s only available until February 15th! Can you believe that? WHAT??? Yep, so if you want to get your hands on it you’d better do that quickly! Place a qualifying order with me and choose this stamp set from the “Sale-A-Bration” Catalog.
This card was so fun to make! First of all, I wanted it to open differently than a typical card. So, I just scored the 4 1/4″ x 11″ cardstock at 3″ and 2″ so it had this unique fold.
I added some of our gorgeous Regals DSP Cardstock on the front for the stripes. The plane was embossed, but not in red embossing powder. This is one of my favorite techniques, my friend!
So all you do to create an embossed look out of any color is to place your stamp on a VersaMark ink pad first. Then- without wiping it off- stamp again in the ink color of your choice. This will help keep the ink wet while you pour some CLEAR embossing powder over it. SAY WHAT? Oh yeah- it’s pretty dang cool! Then you just heat set it as normal with your heat tool.
Pretty cool- eh? It’s such an easy little trick to add some texture and gloss to your projects. Just make sure that if you need to stamp more than once, you clean the stamp off after you add the “color”. You don’t want to be inking up your VersaMark pad with other colors. (Yep- lesson learned the hard way). Hey- don’t forget about the 20 cards I’m giving away from these blog projects!! You can see how to grab those at the bottom of this post.
