Pastel Embossing

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend I know I had one. I attended a special demo meeting Saturday morning called 'Diva Day'. It's a special day for special demos and it was a lot of fun.

We were served breakfast, then we did several make n takes. We were shown some cards that Tamye Dunbar did at Founders Circle last week. I am going to use those for my Stamp a Stack in October. Way too much fun...

I digress and back to reality. I did this card for a challenge recently on yahoo. The late night Stampers group challenge 38. We had to do something with our pastels and I having discovered how wonderful they are to work with and the color intensity is so fantastic..well anyways, it was intense.

I call this pastel embossing and it really isn't that difficult to do and not as time intensive as I thought so here is a tutorial for you.

  1. I used the Cameo Coral CS for the base, this time however, I cut the card on the 8.5 edge at 4.25"
  2. Take the Bermuda Bay CS and cut accordingly. Make sure you have enough for the saying.
  3. Using your Whisper White CS take the Boy Beary Stamp and stamp with black stazon.
  4. Now take your Versa Marker and color in the bear. Quickly coloring in with your pastel colors.
  5. Now take you Versa Marker again and go over what you just pasteled but make sure you clean the pen between color changes.
  6. Make sure you work quickly here as you will cover the picture with clear embossing powder then heat.
  7. Use your modern label punch to punch out the saying. Attach it to the extra Bermuda Bay that you edged with the scallop edge punch with snail adhesive.
  8. Attach that piece with stampin' dimensionals.
  9. Use the Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and tie a bow with it.
  10. Then attach the bear, then your saying and your down.
I actually really like this card and I am impressed at how bright the pastels are. I hope you like and want to try it. Until tomorrow have a great day.
