Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Anything Goes challenge - Background Embossing with Die

Hullo there everyone .. back again with another DT post for Bizzy Bec's. I am revisiting the Frantic Stamper Saharan Screen Die (do check out Bec's amazing prices). This time I’m Embossing AND Die cutting it. See THIS CARD here card where I used it as stencil..

Used canon Glossy photo paper, blending solution put on generously and added various re-inkers - some distress some dye inks, and moved colour around with cling wrap then removed and *heat dried it. Needs a bit of heat drying to set it.
With large paint brush (just out of edge of photo) splattered the gold paint over the surface.
Using rubber embossing mat, in cuttlebug, I dry embossed the scrap bit of cardstock to make card top. Then die cut the gloss cardstock, which I had backed with double sided tape. In jigsaw like fashion added it to embossed background
 Finished card, also used Impression Obsession Get well soon, and MB Lavish branch. This MB die is discontinued, I discovered, but there are other items available from Bec which are similar..

Shaz this is so beautiful - love the effect of the die cutting and inserting the pieces into the embossed impression. The original piece is beautifully coloured! The finished product is gorgeous.

Gorgeous technique, and I do have glossy photo papers, but I don't have reinkers but plenty alcohol inks, wonder if they would work?

Regine Karpel said...

Have a great day.

FOR THOSE Wondering re Alcohol reinkers:
..(see Connie’s query, above)
They work just fine ... however be aware that they dry more quickly may need more blending fluid.

I’ve actually been going to try nail polish remover as a blending fluid. I’ve wondered if it would work... ???if get round to trying I will share.

Hi Shaz, hope you are on the mend, been a bit flat here too. I love the card you made and you have given me an idea to use some photo paper I have laying around in one of the draws, and a MFT die... now just need some inky drops to play with.... Have a wonderful week... Megan

Cobnut Crafter said...

Gorgeous card and what a fabulous background! Love the colours and the technique with cling film - wouldn't have thought to use so many different mediums - must give it a try. Thanks for inspiration. x Anne

That is gorgeous, I love the colours against the white frame. Beautiful.

Goodness, Shaz, this is brilliant! I love it. Lots of work, though, but well worth it to achieve such a beautiful result.
