Project Life / Pocket Scrapbooking with Technique Tuesday
We're loving the new June stamp and die from Technique Tuesday. This month I chose a few papers from Gossamer Blue and challenged myself to use vellum and embossing powder for these cards. Here's what I came up with for this month. You could also use most of these cards as embellishments for the front of greeting cards. They would make lovely cards for friends and family.
All dies and stamps are from Technique Tuesday unless noted otherwise.
This card is my favorite! The individual photo I took of it was blurry (sad face). So, I'm using the group shot to feature this one. I thought this card would be wonderful on the front of a greeting card also.
I used some flair buttons I had left over from the cards I made with May's stamp and die. You can see those cards HERE. I used white embossing powder and heat embossed the stamped image onto vellum.
For the card below, I cut the butterfly from black cardstock, covered it with VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder, then I heat embossed it. Love the glossy effect. I cut the butterfly from the patterned paper, removed it, and inlaid the black butterfly. I then backed it with pink cardstock.
I used the butterfly I cut from the patterned paper above, for the card below. Using the same technique, I embossed the butterfly with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is also embossed. However, I used white embossing powder so it would show up nicely on the black paper. The tiny heart is from February's die release.
For the final 4x6 card, I inked the butterfly die and the ran it through my Big Shot using the rubber mat (the squishy one) between the paper and the cutting plate. I saw this technique on Jennifer McGuire's blog and had to try it. You can watch her technique video HERE.
I also used the Remember die and stamp set from April's release. You can see those cards HERE.
Here's a picture of June's stamp and die.
