VIDEO: Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Embossing Through Stencils

by Lydia Evans

Hello everyone! Lydia here and I'll be showing a couple of different looks when heat embossing through stencils using the Flowing Butterfly Stencil.

DSC02727To start, I took the Flowing Butterfly Stencil and placed it onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. I then used a foam blending tool to add Embossing Ink through the stencil. When the image was covered, I removed the stencil and heat embossed it using Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. I did this three times to create three panels.

DSC02728The first panel, I ink blended Parrot, Lagoon, and Deep Iris Inks to cover the whole panel. I also added some splatter using Iridescent Ink Spray to break up the solid ink blending. The second panel, I colored in the butterfly using small finger daubers and the same colors of ink that I used for the first panel. For the third panel, I used the circle stamp from Simple Shapes XL Stamp Set to stamp over the embossed image using the same green, purple, and blue inks as before.

DSC02729To finish, I added simple sentiments from Sentiment Strips Stamp Set, heat embossed using Pure White Embossing Powder onto Jet Black Cardstock.

Great technique Lydia that makes gorgeous cards. IMy favorite is the one with the finger daubers, although the thought of using a shape stamp is also very interesting. Thank you so much for showing and have a great weekend.
