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. Oh how beautiful. These colours against the black are SO pretty and the white embossing looks amazing on those hearts. Well done Kristina!

  2. Love this card. The colours look so pretty against the black. And I love the layout. Your blending is so smooth! I have a long ways to go still with my ink blending!

  3. This card has a fun retro vibe and I love that you’re bringing back the faux stitching, Kristina!

  4. Love this! Waste not, want not! The black and the beautiful ink blending are a gorgeous combination! Circles or other geometric designs would work well for a more masculine looking card. :) Can you tell I’m in need of a few?

  5. Beautiful colours and a really cool & clean design! This is the kind of cards I remember you making back almost 10 years ago, when I started following you, Kristina! :-)

  6. I love this card! Your white stitching lines remind me of when I started following you a few years ago! TFS!

  7. Beautiful, fun card. I love your gel pen highlights — if only I could draw a straight line!

  8. Gorgeous card! I love the ink blended colors against the black card stock! The hearts really pop and the white stitches really finish the card off nicely!

  9. I love what you did with your card. It just goes to show you that stamps you wouldn’t think would work (especially on hearts) can do the job. Multipurpose. Yeah! Beautiful card.

  10. I just love this card–the colors, layout, added details of stitching and embossed hearts. Very nice, Kristina.

  11. I love this idea! The use of color is perfect for the black background. The video showed techniques I’ve never tried. Thank you!

  12. Love the way you used all the blended pieces. Makes everything coordinate so we’ll. And the faux stitching? Perfect!

  13. These are so pretty, Krisitina. I love the black against those berry colors.. and your blending is like buttah (as Laura Bassen would say)!
