For my card this week, I've done a combo of dry embossing using the big shot and heat embossing. This technique is called double embossing and it's super cool!
It's also very easy to do! You just ink up your embossing folder with versamark (or you can use colored craft ink) and a brayer then run your folder through the big shot as usual. Next, you dump your embossing powder over it and heat emboss as usual. You end up with embossing powder on the de-bossed part of the paper (the part that's indented, not raised). Very cool! Just look:
Stamps: Spooky bingo bits
Paper: Whisper white, basic black, tangerine tango, rich razzleberry, brights DSP stack
Ink: Basic black, rich razzleberry, versamark
Accessories: Spider web embossing folder, pewter EP, circle and scallop circle punches, simply scored, basic black polka dot scalloped ribbon, dazzling details
And here's a final helpful hint: You'll want to ink up the side of the folder that has the SU logo on it to get this look. This is the new pewter embossing folder and it looks so cool and spooky on this card! And notice I used Spooky Bingo bits again without the bingo stamp! I love that they are made to go together AND that they stand on their own as well!
You'll have to forgive me for all the Halloween cards, you know I LOVE Halloween so there is a good chance that every single card I post until the end of October may be a H-ween card, lol!
As for the rest of the card, here is what I did:
- The tangerine tango base was distressed by taking my black ink pad directly to the paper.
- I used some sticky strip to ruffle up the basic black polka dot ribbon.
- I used my simply scored to create a medallion of razzleberry cardstock and then layered some punched peices to complete it. I also sponged the edges with basic black ink and then edged the whole thing with dazzling diamonds! The new DD makes edging medallions super easy instead of having to mess with glue and glitter
