Stampendous Embossing Enamel

Happy Monday,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and today, I want to share with you the Stampendous embossing enamel that I won in a lucky dip in one of the local craft store some time back.

From the packaging, I was expecting it to be more of a distress type of embossing but it turned out great even for CAS cards.

And this is what I made,

Thank You Card Idea

Step by step instructions

  1. Tape the four sides of water color paper to create a uniform border around.
  2. Use thick brush and wet the water color paper.
  3. Use Distress Markers Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick, transfer the distress inks with a wet brush and color the background.  I deliberately do more pink at the bottom left as I intended to stamp the flowers and to have the brighter yellow and orange at the top.
  4. Let the background color dry up and you may use heat tool to speed up the drying process.
  5. Stamp Lawn Fawn Flutter By with Watermark Ink and emboss with Hero Arts gold embossing powder.
  6. Stamp Paper Smooches “thanks” with Watermark Ink and emboss with Stampendous embossing enamel – Aged Rose.
  7. Ink the four sides with Watermark Ink and emboss with Hero Arts gold embossing powder.
  8. Adhere sequins with Ranger Glossy Accent.
  9. Attach the water color paper to card base using foam tape.

Hope you like this card.

In fact, I would actually try embossing the flowers with the Stampendous embossing enamel as well for my next project.  But for this project, I wanted to try two different embossing powder together and see the effect.
