Father’s Day Cards with Embossed Acetate!

Another post by Our VERY Talented KimberlyRae from Kreations by KimberlyRae!

Hello Everyone and Welcome!

Father’s day is coming up and I want to share some cards I made for the men in my life.

I used products from  Concord & 9th,  Avery Elle and Altenew and Distress Oxide inks.  Plus, some Heat Resistant Acetate!

Now, you must know,  it’s a zoo around this place.  When I start a card I have an idea in my head and as I go along BAMMM another flies in and BAMM another and another!  You know what I’m talking about, right? ðŸ˜‰



I started out with Concord & 9th’s Triangle Turnabout stamp and inked up with my lightest color first and up to my darkest color, turning one click for each color.  I then set it aside and inked up another in a different color scheme.

The inks I used for the BLUE card:  Broken China OXIDE, Faded Jeans OXIDE, Altenew Industrial Diamond and Altenew Jet Black.
PURPLE card:  Wilted Violet OXIDE, Altenew Midnight Violet , Altenew Industrial Diamond and Altenew Jet Black.
GREEN card:  Altenew Volcano Lake, Altenew Lagoon , Altenew Industrial Diamond and Altenew Jet Black.



Then, after the pieces were all dry, I placed one-by-one  in  my ‘sparkle box’ and spritzed it with Glitzy Spritzy shimmer spray from Lindy’s Stamp Gang [any glitzy spray you have on hand will do].  That completes the turnabout stamping.

Now, onto the embossing-  I Cut  ‘Hot off the Press’ Heat Resistant Acetate.  In this case, for my A2 sized cards.  Make sure you leave enough at the top for a flap to fold over.

I put the acetate into my Stamp positioning tool and centered the large ‘Dad’ stamp.



*VERY IMPORTANT*  Use an anti-static tool all over the acetate!  You can wipe it clean with a tissue later.

Ink up your stamp with VersaMark and emboss with white embossing powder.  I used  Ranger, but any white embossing powder you have on hand will do.  I put my piece down flat on  my craftmat and heat embossed it.





I made multiple cards so I just left the stamp in there, until I was done with all of them.

Then, I heat embossed the three Avery Elle VELLUM envelopes in the same way.  These envelopes are heavy duty and do not wrap…they are a breeze to work with!  I’m totally going to mail these in the envelopes.



I’m real happy with my cards…I hope my guys are, too

Thank you, for visiting…please, let me know if  you have any questions…see ya soon

Hugs and Blessings,

See-through Circle Card with Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy by Mary Polanco

Hello everyone!  I'm so glad you are crafting with us as we have a blast with this super easy, but WOW card!  Today's card features Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy Stamps.  I started off the card by stamping and coloring the elephant from the Lawn Fawn Slow Down and Enjoy stamp set. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color them in both warm greys and cool greys.  (I'm saving the warm grey elephant for a future project).
Once my coloring was complete, I worked on the background and made it as simple as I could.   First I ink blended Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick to get an ombre look.  Then I put a Hero Arts Stencil over it to get a tone on tone look.  Lastly, I spritzed the panel with water to get a more distressed look.  Once complete I used a circle die to cut through the inked up panel as well as the Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock.
I placed the front and back of my elephant together using foam dots and nestled him into the circle.  I finished off the card by …
