Thanks for stopping by today for the Color Fusers blog hop where I am sharing how to create a sea scene using the Beauty of the Deep bundle, heat embossing, Vellum Cardstock plus a tip to create colored embossed elements.
Azure Afternoon is one of our new core colors, and it is such a beautiful medium blue. It reminds me of the Caribbean! So I decided to create a sea scene using the Beauty of the Deep bundle. I love the delicate detail in the stamps and awesome coordinating accent dies available in the bundle.
Using clear embossing, I added images to create a monotone look to the card base and front layer. For the scene, I created several fun die cut pieces, including colored heat embossed fish.
Creating Colored Embossed Elements
Creating colored embossed elements is quite easy. To do this, you need both a Versamark Pad and a Classic Ink Pad in your choice of color. First, ink your stamp with Versarmark, then with the Classic ink before stamping. Once you stamp the image, add clear embossing powder and heat. Your image will now be the color of your ink!
To Create This Card
- Card base Azure Afternoon cardstock 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
- Front layer Azure Afternoon 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Multiple Vellum cardstock coral die cuts
- Angelfish Pumpkin Pie and Vellum cardstock die cuts
- Small fish Daffodil Delight and Vellum cardstock die cuts
Stamp kelp and coral on card base and front layer in Versamark ink and heat emboss using clear embossing powder. Adhere front layer to card base. Create fish by inking stamp in Versamark then classic ink before stamping on Vellum. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder and die cut. Die cut a coordinating cardstock piece for each fish, and adhere together. Cut several coral pieces from Vellum cardstock and add to card front. Arrange fish on card front and adhere in place. Add a sentiment of choice. Finish inside card as desired.
