Layered Stamping + Heat Embossing with Kristina Werner

Hi all! Kristina here. Today I have a fun card for you featuring the Tropical Silhouettes stamp set and lots of stamping!

This card is basically a stamped background adhered to the front of a card at a diagonal, with faint stamping coming from underneath the edges. Looks complicated, but it was actually very easy.

I first stamped the background using the Tropical Silhouettes stamp set and four colors of Simon ink: Hollyhock (for the flamingo), Jellybean, Fern, and Leaf Green. I also blended the background a little bit.

Then I added lots of gold heat embossing. I stamped the dot pattern from the stamp set, the flamingo, and swiped the edges with Versamark to add gold embossing as well.

I placed the stamped and embossed background on top of a white card base just long enough to get placement for the sentiment and the two leaves, then I removed the background. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and gold embossed, while the leaves were stamped in Simon’s Fog ink.

I hope you enjoy the video! There are lot of little tips throughout the video, including one on cleaning your stamps super well so you can use light inks with them without color transfer. Enjoy!

  1. This card is so pretty and unique. Who would have thought that leaves would make such a great card. Thanks for all the tips and techniques you showed us in this video. Interesting about the green ink still maintained on the stamp.

  2. This was definetly a very difficult, time consuming design to see first off, but you broke it down & really made it more manageable. Aren’t some inks weird that they stain stamps more than others !
