A little break from the Top 10 today to bring you a fun and really easy card I created over the weekend with the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set from Stampin UP and some Black and White Embossing powder.  Heat embossing was one of the first techniques I learned as a stamper and I still get a kick out of watching that amazing powder transform my cards….

Stamps:  Regarding Dahlias page 91, #130324 – wood #130327 – clear

Ink:  VersaMark #102283

Card Stock:  Basic Black #121045 – 4-1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5-1/2 and 4 x 5-1/4 for the art piece.

Tools & Embellishments:  Heat Tool #129053, Embossing Buddy #103083, White Embossing Powder #109132, Black Embossing Powder #109133, Dimensionals #104430

  1. Stamp and emboss the Dahlia twice, bottom left and top right of the art piece, cover with white embossing powder, shake off excess and heat set.
  2. Stamp the sentiment in between and then also emboss with the white embossing powder
  3. Stamp the flowers again, top left and bottom right and emboss with the black embossing powder
  4. Attach Dimensionals to the back of the piece and attach to the card front.

As you can see, a very easy card to create and it would be great for a beginner class to show them the heat embossing technique.  You could also do this on Whisper White card stock and change the Embossing Powder colors – how about going wild with Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo?  Wild Wasabi and Pool Party?  Or – try embossing it all in gold – so elegant!.  You can view all of Stampin Ups  embossing powder color choices on page 167 of the big catalog.

Hugs and Happy Stamping,

and if you need stamping supplies I would LOVE to be your Demonstrator!
