Stamp Set Showcase Week 7 (4)

Welcome to another day of

  CHALK TALK

And today's card make has been combined with one of Stampin Up's newest Textured Impressions Embossing Folders

 (TIEF) LOVELY LACE

And today you will be sponging your own background and then using a Dry Embossing technique


You will need to make a Whisper White card blank by trimming a piece of cardstock to 14.8cms x 21cms; score the long side at 10.5cms, fold and burnish with a bone folder.

Trim a piece of Kraft cardstock to 14.3cms x 10cms
Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 13.8cms x 9.5cms.

Now to make your background by taking that piece of Whisper White cardstock and blending a combination of the following ink pads and applying the inks using Stampin Sponges. Keep some areas where the colour is pure, but also allow the different inks to blend together to create additional colours on the background. I have used the following ink pads to create my background:

Calypso Coral
Pear Pizzaz
So Saffron
Pool Party
Melon Mambo


Now for the dry embossing. Pop your sponged background into the Lovely Lace TIEF (sizzix logo on the top) and with the fold of the TIEF going into the Texture Boutique first, put the embossing folder between the embossing plates and run through the machine 
Remove the cardstock.
Add a piece of Venetian Crochet Trim and some Linen Thread to the lower third of the card (Landscape position).
Mount this onto the Kraft Card, and mount that onto your Card Blank.
Stamp the sentiment on Melon Mambo ink and use the residual ink on your sponges to create some colour to the background. Die cut through your Big Shot (long Think Label). 
Die cut 2 more labels from Kraft Card. Use these to create a frame for your sentiment. Cut the 1st die cut Kraft label in half vertically, and the second needs to be cut in half on the horizontal 
Using Tombow MP Glue, adhere the corresponding pieces of the Kraft labels to the back of your sentiment label, leaving just a little visible.
Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse of the layered label & adhere to the card. 



I have used gilding was to finish my card, with a gentle touch of my finger to the embossed areas of the card. If you do not have this, then you can get a similar effect by using Memento Gold Ink Pad and finger daubers (also available via my online store)

I hope you enjoy making your version of this card, and I  look forward to seeing them

Happy Stamping
