Background stamps and clear embossing!!

Background stamps and clear embossing!!

Hey everyone....

It's Ashlee here with you today and I have a set of cards to share that I made using WOW! clear gloss embossing powder to create awesome designs on coloured cardstock. These are perfect to use as a main feature on simple cards by adding a sentiment and some sequins for even more shine!!

Steps for embossing...

- Select your coloured cardstock of choice.

- Use an anti static tool to get rid of any static so that your embossing powder doesn't stick all over the place.

- Use a stamp positioner for stamping so that you can stamp multiple times if need be (especially with large images just incase you miss a piece)... stamp using embossing ink, I used the WOW! embossing ink pad its a slow dry ink giving you more time to add your powder. 

- Tip on clear gloss embossing powder to cover the whole stamped area.

- Tip off excess/return to jar and then heat set using your embossing heat tool.

For my set of cards I used the awesome "Woodcut floral" background stamp and then added some sentiments cut using each cards opposite colour of cardstock...

The sentiment die cuts were done using the "Ei-Ei-o word", I just love this die!!

I then added some Crater lake sequins to each card to finish them off...

Hope you enjoy this matching set and feel inspired to get out some clear gloss embossing powder for your cards, Hugs Ashlee.

(P.s sorry for the shine on the cards It was very hard to capture them without getting shine because of the awesome gloss finish from the embossing!!)
