7/25 Stampin' Up! Fancy Fan Embossed Card for GoDiva Swap


This is the card I made for the card portion of the GoDiva swap at Convention. I just LOVE this color combo. I got it off the Color Coach . . . Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist. How do you like the letterpress plate being used as an embossing plate? I think the whole ink and roller thing is cool, but I like that I can get even more mileage out of my letterpress plates by using them for embossing, too. I created a video for you to show you how to do this.



Another thing that I did on this card that actually looks really cool IRL is that I embossed the Chocolate Chip Doily. It's a very easy technique. All you have to do is ink up your stamp in VersaMark ink and then go directly to our Chocolate Chip ink pad and ink it up right over the VersaMark. Stamp, put clear embossing powder over it and heat with the Heat Tool.

Hope you don't mind, Kay! I put a link to this tutorial on my blog.One day SU! will think we are mature enough to handle the letterpress plates here in AUS ... and this will be really helpful. (I just know I will forget where I saw it ... if I didn't bookmark it now!) Hugs xxaxx
