Hi friends! Today’s card is for the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, “Rainbow,” but it’s also a texture challenge. For this challenge, I decided to use a puffy-embossing technique I learned from Marta Debicka – Drop of Sunshine on YouTube. It is a really fun technique and a great way of adding texture and dimension to your crafty projects!
I first stamped seven different animals from a few different Lawn Fawn sets (I will have the sets listed below) so that I could colour each animal a different colour of the rainbow. I used the following Ohuhu alcohol markers:
Red Elephant: R1, R2, R12
Orange Mouse: YR170, YR250, Y120
Yellow Elephant: Y120, Y3, Y030
Green Owl: GY1, GY2
Blue Hedgehog: PB7, B070, B220
Purple Mouse: V030, V250, V230
After fussy-cutting and die-cutting my images, I used Elmer’s School Glue, Black Ranger Embossing Powder, Honey Bee Stamps Perfect Bricks Background Stencil, and a heat tool to create a puffy embossing effect. I did this by mixing some embossing powder with the glue, spreading it over the stencil, and heating it. While simple, it adds a lot of interest to the card!
Before assembling the card, I stamped a sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s Dandy Day Stamp Set onto the card front. I then attached everything to the card base. I used foam squares to elevate each of the animals.
