Video - Textured Sticky Sheet Embossing and Diecuts

I love discovering new ways to use crafty products and in my newest video here I am sharing a new variation of my Metallic or Hot Camo Technique with specialty embossing powders on scor-tape sheets. The result is a gorgeous textured look and since there is no camo pattern, I am calling it Textured Sticky Sheet Embossing.

Just look at those butterflies with that glorious mix of texture and color! This is the card I show how to make in the video and the butterflies were made with dies from Tim Holtz and Sizzix cut out of Scor-tape sticky sheets. I dumped on Aged Teal and Aged Gold Embossing Enamels from Stampendous and Seth Apter's Deep Sea Embossing Powder and then melted them with my heat gun. The butterfly stencil in the background is from Visible Image and Soar is a favorite die from Quietfire Design.

I am loving the Slimline cards (that fit into a legal size envelope) but find taking good photos of them in my set up is not easy. Trust me - this card and the embossed textured bird is gorgeous and easier to see on the video here. I mixed Aged Copper Embossing Enamel from Stampendous and Seth Apter's Rustic Indigo and when that was melted, added some Steel Blue Chunky Glitter on top on both birds. The bigger bird is a die from Poppy Stamps and the little one from Impression Obsession. The stitched slimline die is from Whimsy Stamps and the "dear friend" sentiment is from Sue Wilson and Creative Expressions. 

**I am not crazy about the name of this technique I came up with (Textured Sticky Sheet Embossing), so if after watching the video you think of a better name for the technique, please share it with me in a comment on this video. If I choose your suggestion and you live in the USA, I will mail you the card I made in the video and a new die set to say Thank You.**

I love how the butterflies turned out. Haven't tried using sticky paper to add the embossing powder, but it's something to try.
