Emboss it!

Today at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, we're focusing on Embossing. I love heat embossing and I love texture embossing. So, I decided to do both for this card. 

I'm in SPRING mode. I can't wait for green grass, flowers and sunny skies! I just love this new little stamp set {Petite Petals} from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. There is also a coordinating punch to go with it. This was perfect for this card!

I got to try the {Stained Glass} technique for this card. I've never done it before, so it was a little challenging, but once I figured it out, I was on FIRE! 

Stained Glass Technique:
1. Stamp the image onto Vellum with VersaMark. 
2. Emboss with White Embossing powder and a heat gun. 
3. Punch the image out. 
4. Turn the image over and sponge/color the back side with ink or markers. 

* To make the stained glass flowers really pop, I backed them with white cardstock.

Cardstock ~ sahara sand, whisper white
Ink ~ strawberry slush, pumpkin pie, lucky limeade
Stamp Sets ~ chalk talk, petite petals, everything eleanor
Tools ~ paper trimmer, paper snips, petite petals flower punch, arrows embossing folder, dimensionals, anywhere glue stick, glue dots, 1 1/4" circle punch, white emboss powder, heat gun, vellum, corner punch
