A Christmas Make and Take

October 13, 2011

Last weekend I held a workshop for a new customer who wanted me to show her and her friends how to use the heat gun.

This is the very simple card I demonstrated to show how to use the Embossing Buddy, Embossing Powder and Heat Tool.  I wiped all over a piece of Whisper White card stock using the embossing buddy and then stamped the swirly image from the Season of Joy stampset using Versamark ink.  I poured over Gold embossing powder, tapped off the excess and then used my Heat Tool to set the embossing powder.  I don’t know about you but I still get this “wow” feeling when I see the embossing powder change colour.  I  also stamped “seasons greetings” from the Many Merry Messages stampset onto the bottom right hand side, using Versamark  and my stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure perfect placement.  Again this was heat set using Gold Embossing Powder. The Whisper White card stock was attached to scored and folded Ridinghood Red card stock.

I stamped the flower image from the Season of Joy stampset onto Whisper White card using Ridinghood Red ink and had one of the guests cut them out while I did the embossing.  I also punched one 5 Petal Flower from Garden Green cardstock and cut two of the petals away.  I pierced a hold through the centre of the flowers using my Paper Piercing tool and Mat Pack and inserted a gold brad.  I attached the Garden Green flower behind the cut flower to represent leaves and then attached the flower to the card front using dimensionals.

As I said a very simple card but I think it is quite elegant and a very easy one to reproduce.

Bye for now, Kris.
