Paper Rose | Heat Embossing Three Ways

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the Topflight Stamps blog ! 

It's Jenny here, and today I'm playing with the gorgeous Paper Rose Bouquet of Flowers stamp with heat embossing.  I've created three cards with similar color schemes to show case the versatility of the technique and the stamp!

In my first card, I stamped the image multiple times with embossing ink,  and then heat embossed in pink embossing powder on cream cardstock.

I then blended co-ordinating ink (I used Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry) around the edges, mixed it with water and added a few spatters with a paintbrush, and also a few spatters of clean water to distress the ink a little.   The sentiment is from AALL & Create's Birthday Animals, stamped in black ink.  As a finishing touch I added some clear and pink sequins.

For my next card I use die cutting to spot light the heat embossed image.  I heat embossed the Paper Rose stamp on grey cardstock in metallic silver embossing powder. I then die cut the image using an heart die and edged the die cut in Black Soot Distress Ink.

I die cut some sticky back pink fun foam with the same heart die and adhered it to the heat embossed heart, slightly shifted so it peeped out and then adhered the entire piece to a white card base.  I added a sentiment from the Penelope Dee You Are Amazing stamp set in black ink and some pink sequins to finish.

My final card uses watercolor resist.  I stamped the image all over a panel of hot press watercolor cardstock (which is smoother, and better for heat embossing) and heat embossed in white embossing powder.

I taped the panel down to a board and spritzed liberally with water. I then used PaperArtsy Infusions in Raspberry and taped the powder over the panel in four or five places.  I tipped the board and let the color bleed out and added a little more water to blend. I then let it dry naturally.  When dry, I die cut it with a stitched rectangle die and adhered to a white card base.

The sentiment (from the Penelope Dee set) was heat embossed on grey cardstock in white and die cut with a stitched rectangle die. I then backed it with the pink fun foam and adhered to the centre of the card.  I added pink sequins again as a finishing touch!

Hope this gave you some inspiration for different ways to use heat embossing and your stamps!  You can head on over to my blog to see the additional supplies I used.   Have a great day!
