Essential Embossing Dry and Heat Embossing Technique

Essential Embossing
Dry and Heat Embossing Technique
Using dies to dry emboss

Hello there!!!
I'm on the Craftin' Desert Divas Blog
sharing some embossing techniques that are quick and easy!

Select your die/ dies to create your emboss background.
Position your die with removable tape ( washi tape) and run through your die cutting machine.
Repeat this process several times, until background is complete.
***TIP*** Be sure to use a rubber mat under your cardstock to ensure the die does not cut through the cardstock.

Choose your word die and die cut several times.
Use one to heat emboss, than adhere to the others to add dimension.

Assemble your card and add embellishments.

CDD- Stunning Stencils

Hey there!
Craftin' Desert Divas is sharing Stunning Stencil creations all week!

I'm on the CDD Blog today sharing a card using the hexagon square from 

The suplies I used are listed below
Other supplies... craft spatula (plastic knife would work too)
Stickles Glitter Glue.

I began with my die cut hexagon and separated the frame from the center. 
I taped the center to a protected area on my craft space and secured the stencil over it. 
Next, I dabbed some ink onto my work space than added a small amount of texture paste.
Mix the two together.
Cover the stencil, smooth and even.

Remove the stencil carefully and wash to remove the paste.
All the stenciled cardstock to dry.

Dry the stencil and adhere to cardstock.
For this step you can place the stencil anywhere you choose.
Ink up black cardstock with white ink.
When finished, die cut the black cardstock with Fancy Frame Die.
Stamp and color your images
I used Copic Shades: 
C1, C3, Y11, Y13, Y15, RV10, RV02, R35, BG11, BG15, YG09.
Stamp the sentiment onto vellum paper and trim. 

Assemble the card onto white cardstock,  size A2.
Embellish with sequins, a cord bow and glitter glue.
