Hey Everyone! Martina aka Frau Pony, back again with some cards. This time I grabbed a bunch of Lindy’s Embossing Powders to get creative.
These Embossing Powders come in a great variety of colors and you’ll surely find the perfect match for your next project :)
I recently started to create more with my Embossing Powders from Lindy’s and have to admit that I should have started so much earlier with this – It’s super fun!
To test this – new to me – technique, I am creating three different cards. I’ll be using different Embossing Powders on each card and am trying to give each of them an individual look with some added color.
Let’s get started!
One thing that is really important to me when I’m using Embossing Powders, is the use of an anti-static tool on the paper as a very first step of the process – you get much better results this way.
After that is done, I can stamp my image onto the paper. Since my stamp is a really big one, I’m using my stamping platform to get a nice and crisp imprint.
Then I’m starting to add Embossing Powder to the imprint. Not too much. I’m trying to cover not more than a 3rd of my image on random places.
To get the excess Embossing Powder off, I quickly turn my paper – trying not to move the Embossing Powder – and dab slightly on the back of the paper.
I repeated these steps with a second, different colored Embossing Powder. Again, adding the powder in random places, still keeping some spots left for a third color.
Dabbing off the second color the same way, I did with my first Embossing powder.
With my last Embossing Powder – this time the lightest color – I just covered the whole paper and shifted it slightly.
I melted the Embossing Powder with my heat gun and wiped off any excess Mica with a dryer sheet.
To finish this background, I added some Glory of the Seas Magicals.
For my second Background, I added some Time Travel Teal Magicals and repeated the same steps as on my first background.
The same for background three. I first painted some Ohm Pah Pah Pink onto my background and repeated the same steps as for the other backgrounds.
To finish the cards, I glued the created backgrounds to card bases and added some die cuts and sequins.
