Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please give a warm welcome back to special guest designer Kelly Rasmussen! She made a cool card using a technique by stenciling with translucent embossing paste. Check it out and enjoy!
Hello, crafters! I’m so happy to be here today to share a birthday card using Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp products.
Often times I don’t plan out my cards, I just start with a background and see where it takes me. For this card, I started out by using the Hero Arts Honeycomb Stencil with Wendy Vecchi Translucent Embossing Paste. Once dry this gives a very similar appearance to clear heat embossing. And like heat embossing, it works great for the emboss resist technique.
For the resist color, I used Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks applied with a Ranger Foam Blending Tool. I chose these three colors because they blend seamlessly and create a subtle gradient of color.
Once I had the background done, I knew I wanted a larger sentiment and so I turned to the Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings set. All of the messages in this set are gorgeous and any one of them would have worked for my card, but I chose the birthday message. I white heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Fog Cardstock, which is a great light grey color, but still allows the white text to show up.
To coordinate with the message panel, I mounted my stenciled background onto a top folding Fog card base. I thought some natural wood tones would look great with the color scheme so I added some May Arts Natural Twine and a Hero Arts Little Clothespin holds the message in place.
I hope you enjoyed my card! And I want to give a huge thanks to the amazing people at Simon Says Stamp for having me as a guest today. :)
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to Kelly for being our guest today!
