Color Blocking | Heat Emboss | Mandy's Flowers


Ok if you don't like heat embossing then this is definitely not the card for you! 😂

Watch the video here

So my fabulous mother in-law gave me this Archival Brilliance ink. I didn't really know what to expect from it but the shade of it is called Platinum Planet. I was going to use clear embossing powder on the black cardstock for a tone on tone look but I'm very happy that I went this route. As you can see the Archival ink is a beautiful silver color. I think it is so pretty. Now I had a hard time finding it on sites that I normally buy from (no links below for it)  so I'm not sure if this certain color is discontinued but there are other ones to choose from. I bet they are all just as pretty.


I used the Modern rose background stamp and the Archival ink to stamp an entire A2 Simon Says Stamp Black cardstock panel. This was a left over piece from something else. I also heat embossed this panel with clear embossing powder. Not a necessary step.

Then I used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Pop Up card die for the windows on the black panel. I only used 3 of the square/rectangle layering dies that come with the Pop Up card die. If you have this die it is a easy way to get that multiple window look with out having to buy another die. Ya know versatile is my jam, right?! 😁


After cutting out those windows I used the black panel to pencil in guidelines on a piece of Neenah solar white. I'm using the Mandy's Flowers stamp set for inside the windows. I stamped these 3 images with Distress Oxide ink (Candied Apple, Peacock Feather, Wilted Violet). Then I heat embossed those. The Distress Oxide inks emboss really well and they are very vibrant. I use these a lot instead of investing in multiple colors of embossing powders.

Now I can layer my top panel over the white cardstock. There are some thin areas of the frame so I use a combination of my ATG and liquid glue.


I also heat emboss the sentiment. This is a combination of 2 of the sentiments in the Mandy's Flowers set. But I used only the "picked" word from one of them. That way I could have 2 fonts. I layer the panel on to a Neenah card base and color in just the flowers with a glitter pen. (More shine is ok!)


Then I pop up the sentiment with some foam adhesive circles. The inside I stamped with the candied apple Distress oxide ink again but didn't emboss it this time and I also masked off the lower portion of the stamp. Then I took one of the negative pieces from the black window panel and adhered that below the flowers. I was going for a pretty floral container.... I think it looks a little odd but I'm going with it; it's cohesive.

Wizard Themed | Witt & Sass Stamps | Make a Scene with Copics

Hello Everyone! I know your probably wondering "Where is the video Jessica?" 😁 It's been a moment since I have created a card without a video. Sometimes things don't go as planned but I'm so very happy with how this creation turned out and was very excited to give it to my sister.


For this I used the freebie that Amy the creator of Witt & Sass offers. There are some great additional images and sentiments! All other stamps came from the totally adorable Magical Creatures set. 



I printed and colored in the cauldron with Copic markers. The sentiment, H (hanging on the wall) and the badger are all from the Magical Creatures stamp set. Everything else I drew in.  Including the colorful sprinkled bubbles floating up from the cauldron. Which I'm using as my focal point for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (it's just a controlled splattering lol). The bubbles are made using various copic colors gently pouncing the brush end tip to form the dots. A few are from a Signo white gel pen and some have a coating of Glossy Accents over the top to add texture and shine. 


I colored the darker parts of the badger with cool and warm copics, which I really like mixing those two tones together. The frame was added around the H and glossy accents covered the middle. I used a versmark ink pad to add embossing ink all around the edges of the cameo die cut. I tried using the Versamark pen at first but that was slow going and the ink was drying quickly. Framing the entire image in gold embossing powder.


For the inside I stamped the lion and added a few flying keys around the sentiment that says "Happy Birthday to my favorite mugglel". Since I stamped directly on the card base I colored very lightly so that it wouldn't bleed through to the back, coloring just the scarf and the keys.
