Die Cutting Distress Inks Heat Embossing Techniques

Color Your Day: How much color

How much color is to much color? How do you use the color wheel to figure out which colors go together and which do not?  I learned a lot in the Color Your day class. I even went as far as to purchase a pocket color wheel so I could really start getting in deep with learn about colors. How much color do you need to add? As much as you want! Or as little as you want.

I chose to use the instructors go to color scheme for my card. Grays with a splash of yellow. I inked up the Gradient Stripes stamp set with Altenew Ink. I heat embossed the Mega Succulent stamp set with my favorite silver embossing powder and then blending on some yellow ink and die cut it with a circle die cut…

As a finishing touch I used some Silver Adhesive Foil Paper to die cut the word hello and also used it as my card base! I LOVE that it has adhesive on the back!

And that’s a wrap for today!

    Beautiful card! I love the striped background

  2. Very pretty! I struggle with adhesive -backed foil paper on my cards as words. Usually the paper is quite thin and when placed over embossing is bumpy, not the look I wanted. Do you think adhering to a cardstock first would give me that “regal” look I’m going for?
