Seascape & A Technique Challenge

Hello everyone!  It is time again for another BS & J Productions challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me.  This time our challenge was to make something using a technique.  I chose to make a card using a Heat Embossed Embossing Folders Technique I saw on Jennifer McGuire’s website.

The Heat Embossed Embossing Folder technique is a very simple but fun technique.  To do it you just put Versamark Ink on the debossed side of the embossing folder.  You want it on the debossed side so the background is what gets the ink on it and not the raised part.  Then you run it through your Cut & Embossing Machine.  I ran it through 3 or 4 times to make sure you get all the Versamark on the card stock.  Then you sprinkle clear embossing powder and set it with your Heat Tool.  By the way, I used a retired embossing folder for this but you could use any folder you have.  I love how the clear embossing powder darkened the Pool Party cardstock just enough to make it look different.

Next I cut out the Seahorse in Fresh Freesia card stock.  The die you use for this is from the set called Sea Life.  It has a coordinating stamp set called Seascapes and you can save 10% purchasing them together in a bundle.  This particular die does not totally cut out the Seahorse so you have to snip it in a few places to release it from the card stock.  I layered that on top of a piece of Basic White cardstock and a slightly larger piece of Fresh Freesia card stock.  Then I cut out the little fish using another die from this set.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Artistically Inked.

Now, let’s go see what technique Buffy and Jackie used.  I am sure I will learning something new from these incredibly talented stampers.

  1. Susan this is a beautiful card! I love this technique and the way you’ve used it on this card. It makes the “sea” look so much more dimensional. Great layout on a lovely card!


  2. That is so cool! What a beautiful card! I haven’t seen that technique with adding the embossing powder…will have to try it. Thanks for sharing it!


  3. This is definitely a “WOW!” card, Susan! I love that technique; I haven’t seen it with embossing powder before, but it adds so much. Love the fish and sea horse (this bundle is on my “next” list).
