Welcome to the Graphic 45 blog! Let's kick start this week with a fabulous #SimplyG45 Stamping and Embossing tutorial. Embossing is great for any of your paper crafting projects but looks especially dreamy on cards. This card and tutorial are both by Brand Ambassador, Kasia Bogatko. Kasia has used our Communique paper collection, and Imagine Stamps to create this show-stopping card.
#SimplyG45 – Vintage Card
Stamp Embossing on Vellum
“Hello Graphic 45 Fans!
Today I have for you a quick and simple project. I decided to make a card! This is not my domain, but sometimes I have to make a card and I wanted to show you how it can be easily done. You do not need much experience and products, just a little time. You can prepare a project in any style, I like vintage and I tried to stick to it here. I used Communique collection, very stylish and vintage.
Choose your favorite papers, maybe flowers, it all depends on your imagination. Remember that a very simple way to add a piece of space is to separate layers from each other with pieces of 3d tape, or simply cardboard. I don’t like flat projects and always make this 3D trick with mine.
On today's occasion, I also wanted to show you how to use stamps in a different way, not just by simply stamping on paper. Just a piece of vellum paper, embossing ink, and embossing powder. In my project, I used clear acrylic stamps Dream from Imagine collection.
First, you have to stamp the chosen design with embossing ink on vellum paper. Then – use your favorite embossing powder – black, gold, white – any color you want to. Melt the powder with the heat tool and you will get beautiful, shiny print. Now just cut the pattern and it’s ready to use.
I believe that now such quick and simple projects will not be a problem for you. Try to get inspired by my video tutorial and the tricks shown. You will certainly receive effective works that will please many recipients.” ~Kasia
