These are the cards I made for Creative Heat Embossing this month. On the first card I swiped my Versamark pad randomly along the sides of a panel, then embossed with WOW Primary Sherbert embossing powder. The tulips are die cut from gold cardstock with a Penny Black die. I saw this technique on a card but cannot find it now. If it is yours, please let me know so I can give you credit.
The second card background was made by plastic wrap all crumpled up and smooshed in Versamark, then I pounced around randomly first not covering the entire panel and embossed with Zing Grapefruit e/p. Then pounced again in some of the bare spots and embossed with Wow Primary Sherbert e/p. I cut a heart with a Die-Namics die and stamped a greeting with a Lawn Fawn stamp.
I LOVE the first card with the swipes of your versamark pad. It makes for a very artistic and modern background ... especially with the fabulous Sherbert colour of embossing powder!! The gold die-cuts just sing on this background. The Valentine's card is so pretty with the mix of pink and red embossing powders for the background, and then repeating the colour with your pink heart with red sentiment. Beautiful cards Brenda!! xx
I just love the sherbert color with the gold on your first card Brenda - what a great background just using the Versamark pad - very graphic looking! and your mix of colors for your valentine background is so pretty! Isn't it fun learning how to create different backgrounds with this technique! Julia xx
Now I can't wait to do this technique again with all my various colored e/ps! Both of your glossy designs are beautiful, Brenda! From a distance that heart design looks like the background is made from lipstick smooches! Fun! Hugs, Darnell
Wow Brenda, I'm in awe of that elegantly contemporary with the gold flowers. Both cards are beautiful but that one just jumped off the screen ♥
Two great techniques and super cards as a result. Hugs Mrs A.
Super background technique and I LOVE all your beautiful cards. So pretty!
I love the artsy background done with the ink pad, Brenda! A great idea and a perfect background for these pretty tulips! The second background is perfect for a valentine! I love how you mixed the pink and red embossing!
Your tulip card is sort of like color blocking but with a more artistic flair. I love that color of embossing powder. the heart is more of the random look but I think I like the tulips best. Great cards. TFS on this new blog.
The first card is so artsy and modern with the embossing powder in almost blocks down the sides. Love the gold tulips and sentiment. And the mix of pink and red on the second one is perfect for Valentine's day.
Gorgeous cards. I definitely am going to try this technique. Thanks for the inspiration.
I have been to visit the new blog and love that all these techniques are in one spot. So much easier to find now! Both of your cards are very cool and beautiful Brenda! You have some interesting embossing powders. I love the names, although they could make one want sherbert or grapefruit. Both of which I love. LOL Hugs, Brenda
Two beautiful cards, Brenda! Love the gold flowers and the artistic background! Lovely background with the heart card, too! Love the pink heart! I’ll have to check out the new blog, how fun!
Lovely bright results from this technique, fabulous cards, and I’m loving the new blog xxx
Great techniques on both cards and I'm glad you're finding new ways to use craft supplies you already have. Everything old is new again it seems!
Fabulous backgrounds Brenda,
love your cards
I love your inky swipes of the pad and then heat embossed which frames your beautiful tulips brilliantly, Brenda, and the combination of red and pink embossing using scrunched up cling film makes a wonderful background to your pretty pink heart and a lovely valentine sentiment..perfect! x
Your techniques look very wonderful and beautifully created as well.
Saw this technique on Darnell's blog too and thought it looked brilliant must have a go sometime.
Love the colours used,
Lots of crafty love and hugs from my house to yours. Jenny L.
Two beautiful cards, Brenda! Love the graphic look and the color combo of the tulip card.The random pattern of the plastic wrap of the second card is awesome! Looking forward to seeing what you'll create for the February session!
Terrific Valentine twofers. Love the second one using the plastic wrap.
