Black & Gold Christmas

Capture d_écran 2018-03-25 à 12.30.58LAYERED Embossing Powders at CAS Mix Up, I mean this technique can really get addictive 😛  I started by adding gold modelling paste onto my card base with the Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil.  While it dried, I die cut a black piece of card stock, added clear Wink of Stella and clear heat embossed 3 times.  Trying my good friend Mac’s approach, while the EP was still hot, I stamped “Merry Christmas” inked up with Delicate Gold Pigment Ink.  To seal the gold inked sentiment, I added another layer of  clear EP.  A gold string was threaded through one of the perforated edges, looped and glued to my card base.  Three black enamel dots were added as an embellishment.  Don’t forget to pop over, the Design Team and videos will certainly inspire you.

Thanks so much for stopping by, HUGz, JoannaIMG_2533IMG_2529

  2. Wow….so unique, so classy and absolutely gorgeous. Love how you added another layout of embossing powder after the stamping the sentiment in the gold. Never thought to do that and it looks amazing. Will be giving this idea a go. The black and the rich gold looks fabulous. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration and thank you for the shout out x. Also wanted to say I agree………..this fun technique is so addictive x

  5. This is gorgeous Joanna! I love your laying of embossed stamping, and that beautiful sentiment panel. I have not tried stamping into hot embossing powder, but must give that a try. This looks amazing. The gold cord knot is another perfect embellishment! xx
