Ink Blended & Heat Embossed Die Cuts with Kristina Werner

Hello, all! Kristina here. Today I have a fun card for you with ink blending, heat embossing, and die cutting.

I started out by ink blending a background on a piece of cardstock that was cut to a full card size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I used three colors of Distress Oxide Ink: Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, and Seedless Preserves.

To maximize the entire ink blended background, I cut off a 1.6″ strip off the long side and set it aside for the card front. I used the larger portion for die cutting as many hearts from the Nested Hearts die set as possible. I ended up with five hearts.

I then took the Geometric Pattern Builder stamp set and stamped and white heat embossed the patterns on the heart die cuts.

While I had my heat embossing tools out, I also stamped and embossed the “Hey There” greeting from the Big Greetings 1 stamp set onto the a black piece of cardstock cut with the A2 Card Curved Edge die.

Assembly of the card was simple with the ink blended strip adhered to the left edge of the card and the black “hey there” piece adhered with foam squares to the right edge of the card. The hearts were then adhered and a white dashed line drawn using a white Gelly Roll 10 pen.

Thanks for stopping by today! :)

  1. Stunning card Kristian, I love the colours with the black. Thanks for the tip of the white dash line, the white of the embossing pops indeed more with that.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Beautiful blending of those gorgeous colours, the white stitch line really did pull it together that bit more at the end, thank you for all advice during video.
