Stamping Inkspirations Embossing Challlenge

 Hello friends! It is time for another Stamping Inkspirations blog hop. The theme for this month is to do our favourite embossing technique. There are 21 of us participating this month so I hope you enjoy all of the amazing projects.

My favourite technique is Heat Embossing. When I saw this done for the first time, I was totally hooked. I had to have all of the stuff right now so I could do this on my own. I did things a little different than just heat embossing for my card though, I did emboss resist.

I started with a card base of Pear Pizzazz. On top of that I added a piece of Basic White cardstock that I stamped my sentiment on using Mossy Meadow ink.  The sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set. After the ink dried, I embossed it using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folder. I matted this with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock and added it to my card base.

On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped a background using a stamp from the Quiet Meadow stamp set. I used Mossy Meadow ink that I stamped off three times as I wanted it to be very light. I had to stamp the image about 10 or 12 times to fill up the entire piece of cardstock. After I was sure that the background was completely dry, I stamped my bamboo images from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set using Versamark ink. I mounted both stamps onto one block so I could stamp them at the same time. I added white embossing powder from the Basics set and heated it to melt using our heat tool. Once it was cooled, I used a Blending Brush to add Pear Pizzazz ink over the bamboo images. When I had the amount of ink I thought looked good, I used a piece of paper towel to wipe the Pear Pizzazz ink off  of the embossed bamboo images. That makes the images really pop. I then matted this piece with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock. 

I used my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends to colour a piece of White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon and tied it around my stamped piece. I then added this to my card front using dimensionals.
