Background Stamps and the Spotlight Technique. We had such fun on Tuesday, playing with two of the Background Stamps. I chose the Festive Foliage from the Annual Catalogue and Candy Canes from the current Mini Catalogue.
If you wondered if Evening Evergreen Ink on Evening Evergreen card would work, well just look at this card! Wonderful, and then adding gold heat embossing on Evening Evergreen Vellum – WOW. A length of Gold Shimmer Ribbon and some InColor Jewels in……Evening Evergreen of course. STUNNING
Or all gold embossing with no spotlight, so elegant. Add a mat of Gold Foil to bring it up to another level (yes, I did gut the foil!)
Then Candy Canes in Real Red on white with a black mat. Die cut a circle from the candy canes and replace it with White Heat Embossing on Real Red.
Which, of course, means you can do the opposite too. I can’t decide which one I prefer, how about you? Let me know in the comments.
Or how about White Heat Embossing on Real Red card AND Red Foil for the spotlight. Not sure it needed the Gold Shimmer Ribbon, although it ties in with the Gold Foil mat behind the spotlight.
Or how about black on white with Real Red and White Heat Embossing for the spotlight, with a gold foil mat? I did say we had fun. I made a massive EIGHT cards in just over an hour. So although it was a longer than usual Live, that means that each card took less than 15 minutes to make, even with heat embossing and die cutting. Not bad for an afternoon’s work! Now settle back and watch the Replay.
