Colorful Embossing with Stencils…

I just love a good stencil. I think THIS one from Tim Holtz is awesome. I decided to do something a bit different and try embossing with a stencil. Here is the love child from the two…

I started by tilting the stencil and taping it down on some of my favorite cardstock and applying a good amount of Versamark ink. I then lifted the stencil and put down several rows of different color embossing powders using a straw that was cut up to control the placement. Then I heat embossed it and the shine is just gorgeous…

For the greeting I used THIS stamp set that you’ve seen me use a lot lately. If you are looking for a classic sentiment stamp set, this is the one! It seems to work with any style of project. I just love it. I finished the card by adhering it to a top folding, white card base. I hope this inspires you to try some embossing with stencils. Thanks so much for stopping by!
