Without further ado keep on reading the post. ↓
To begin with, I started by stamping with embossing ink the Tropical Stamp Set in a white card panel. Next, I white heat emboss the card panel by applying Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder, and heat setting the powder with the heat tool. Then, I did a little bit of embossing resist technique by inking it up the card panel over the white heat embossing with Wilted Violet, and a hint of Peacock Feathers both Distress Oxide Inks. Once, I was done inking it up the card panel, I clean the excess from the inks with a dry cloth, and I trimmed the edges of the card panel. Right after, I silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Born to Sparkle Stamp Set with Metallic Silver Embossing Powder in a piece of white card stock, and I ran the sentiment through the die-cutting machine along with one of the stitched rectangle from the Rectangle Stax Set. Lastly, I adhered the backing of the inked background to an A2 side folding white card base with foam mounting tape followed by the sentiment which I also adhered with foam mounting tape for more dimension.
For the next example, I kept the same idea for the ink resist part. However, for this example instead of stamping, and white heat embossing the whole white card panel, I partially cover the center of it with a piece of masking tape. At this point I had many ideas in mind as after white heat embossing, and inking the card panel, I could had cut the inked piece, I could had added thread to the edges. But, I remembered the I had the WOW! Embossing Pen. So instead of cutting the card panel, I drew two lines with the help of the ruler edge, and I white heat emboss them both with the same white embossing powder that I used for the card panel. Lastly, I silver heat embossed another sentiment from the Born to Sparkle stamp set right in the center of the two lines, and right after, when the silver heat embossing was done, I trimmed the edges of the card panel, and I adhered the backing of it to an A2 size white side folding card base with foam mounting tape.
To finish both card off, I had to add a little bit of sparkle to at least one of the cards so, I decided to adhere some of the Shimmering Pool Mix Jewels for a sparkly look.
