Deep Impressions & Color Burst Fall Card


I am having so much fun with Stampendous embossing enamels and the Deep Impressions technique taught by Fran of Stampendous. Our challenge this month at our local stamp club was to make a Fall or Thanksgiving card with the four sided folded card. I started with two pieces of watercolor paper and sprinkled on several colors of Color Burst, then spritzed with gold iridescent spray to activate the colors and make them sparkle. I cut circles with a Nestabilities die, then cut in half and attached. I die cut a leaf using a Stampendous die and placed it on a craft sheet on an electric griddle heated to 300 degrees. I melted a layer of clear ultra thick embossing powder then added Aged Hunter embossing enamel (beautiful gold with dark green from Stampendous) and then sprinkled some sparkly green on top. While it was still molten, I removed from heat and stamped quickly with an old text background stamp from Stampin' Up. I used more dies for the inside greeting:


I am entering this card in the challenge at Sweet Stampin' to use dies and/or punches and the Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create.

That is one amazing card Karen - love the colours of the background papers and that gorgeous stamp is a worthy focal point against them.
