Happy Little Stampers October 2016 CAS Challenge

Hi there

I'm here to introduce this month's CAS challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.  Every month this year we have had a different technique and this month we would like to see...

There are video tutorials of variations of this technique over on the main challenge blog if you need a little inspiration or guidance.

This challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers and as always
there's a great prize for one lucky winner!

For my DT card I decided to use heat embossing on coloured vellum...

I used just one stamp set on this card, Doodled Flowers by HLS.  I cut three strips of coloured vellum and stamped the images in VersaMark ink before heat embossing with white embossing powder.  I wrapped these around a white cardstock panel and secured on the reverse.  I then stamped the sentiment and simply die cut with a stitched circle die and popped this up over the strips with 3D foam.  The main panel was also popped up for dimension.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Happy Little Stampers - Doodled Flowers
  • Ink: VersaMark; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Double Stitched Circles
  • Coloured Vellum from stash

Challenge entries:
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #445 - CAS
Dream Valley - Challenge #141 - Embossing Wet or Dry

Embossing on vellum can create some really lovely effects so why not join in.  The challenge will run until the end of October.
