Mer embossing

med Gazellen, naturligtvis! Denna gång på Core’dinations cardstock, från baksidan. Och spegelvänd utskrift…

och sen fram med sandpapper och slipkloss.

Jag testade embossing med Gazellen för ett tag sedan – det blev enormt bra, speciellt denna som jag gjorde med vellum:

och en närbild:

Jag bytte bara skärmattan mot en embossingmatta, kniven mot en embossingnål, i övrigt precis som när man skär ut, förutom att jag spegelvände motivet i print-funktionen.

In Sweden we celebrate Father’s Day today. This is the card I made for DH

These lovely Steampunk Stamps can be found at StampAttack. The cogweels are embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder in gold and pearl copper, while the more intricate picture is embossed with Stampendous Stamp’n’Bond and covered with Noris Art-Metal in variegated gold. Both these products can be found at The Craft Barn. The cardstock is from a DCWV Metallic Stack.

Panduro had a sale recently, and they had Prima papers too! Guess who stocked up on them? I’ve used them a lot these past weeks. Here are a few of the LO’s I’ve made.


The tag comes from one of Kevin’s t-shirts, I painted it with Crackle Paint and added a rub-on.


Flowers from Prima and PYHobby, the pearl white brads are office type brads which I have embossed (pointing downwards, instructions there), the photo mat is of my own production, stamps and journalpaper from Prima, chipboards from K&Co, except the swirl which is from Panduro. Painted with Crackle Paint and added Distress Ink.


Flowers from Prima, Wild Orchids and PYHobby, the leaves comes from an interior design shop, the leaf border is stamped, embossed and alco inked on acetate (instructions in an earlier post), flower centers (half pearls) are bought at Tradera.


Prima and Wild Orchids flowers, chipboard swirl from Panduro, brads are embossed with UTEE Britez Fuchsia.


Flowers from the same places as all the LO’s above. The chipboard swirl was really piggy pink so I added some red Staz-On to it. Journal tag/calendar from Webster’s Pages.


The photo mat is of my own production, but can also be bought from Svartvik Paper, this one is stamped with Prima stamps and Staz-On ink. The title is a SEI rub-on, flowers are Prima and Imaginisce, the belt buckle from K&Co, but I added some Crackle Paint to it as it was in wrong color.


A wooden Domino piece, distressed. The lovely screw brads comes from Creative Club.


The large brad lower left comes from Panduro, the hook and eye on the right is from one of mom’s sweaters (don’t tell her!).

That’s enough of Prima for today – but don’t worry, there’s more (I just ordered another pile of them…)

I found this lovely sketch and challenge at the Handarbeta blog – go check it out, you have until August 8th to participate!

Here’s my take on it:


The background paper is a Bazzill Smoothie, Walnut Cream, which I have stamped with a script stamp and Saddle Brown Staz-On, then with a flower stamp and embossed with clear EP, added some Distress Inks and misted the whole thing. Some of the brads are embossed (check out below) and some of the flowers have been stamped, inked and misted. The photo mat is handmade paper of my own production, but it can also be bought from Svartvik – with its lovely structure and raw edges it goes so well with Distress Inks.


Stamped with opaque white Staz-On and embossed with holographic EP on acetate.


I put Alcohol Ink on acetate and cut with an Ellison die – Daisies.


There are two coats of Stickles on the center flower, and all the chipboard flowers are painted with Crackle Paint.

Don’t forget to check out the challenge at Handarbeta, and also check in what’s happening at CropStop this week!

As a china painter, I have tons of the glazed tiles around, and I started thinking about altering them instead of painting.


Put on the alcohol inks directly from the bottle, blend them with your blending tool to desired “pattern”


As soon as the alcohol ink has dried completely, stamp and emboss, but be careful… Be sure to work on a heat-proof working area and don’t touch the tiles until they have cooled off! They get very, very HOT!

This is another tile I made with different colors and a different stamp


You don’t want to emboss? Try this one instead


Attach peel-off stickers to your tile, add alcohol inks as desired, let dry completely and remove the stickers. Easy, huh?

Another thing to do with alco inks and embossing is your own transparencies. Be sure to use a transparency that is heat resistant (I use the overhead films made for laser copiers, they work great and can be found at a very reasonable price).

Stamp your image, add embossing powder and tap off excess powder. You don’t have to be THAT careful, as the powder won’t attach to the transparency as it does to paper. Stray powders can easily be removed using your fingernail after heat embossing. Put on the alco inks as desired – directly from the bottle if you want – and blend/mix them. Let dry. If you get alco inks outside the image, don’t worry. It can easily be removed using a Q-tip dipped in alcohol (rubbing or denatured). You have to be a bit careful, though, when using these transparencies, as the embossing gets a bit brittle. But they sure look nice…!
