Inking Techniques to Make Multiple Artist Trading Cards

By LV Handcrafted

Hello friends! This is Linh (or LV Handcrafted on all the socials). In today’s video I’m showing two techniques for creating background panels that you can either cut down or die cut from!  One technique features the ever-so-popular ink “smooshing” and the other features creating monoprinting with a gel plate!  These techniques are fast and easy to make multiples of if you ever need to make the same card en mass. I made a set of 6 Artist Trading Cards (ATC) using one panel for the background and the monoprint for die-cutting.

Using Embossing Powder To Make Embossing Skins

By Katy Ingram

Hello Friends! Katy here and today I have a really fun technique using MBoss Embossing Powders to make paper thin backgrounds, AKA Embossing Skins.

In todays video tutorial I am sharing how I made some backgrounds using embossing powders with an iron, you can also use your heat gun. You will also need some parchment paper/baking paper. This is a quick technique, but so addicting!

The best part, you can use any embossing powder, including the ones that don’t emboss very well any more. This is a great technique to use those particular powders up so they don’t go to waste!

I have lots of tips and things to share in the video, check it out below.
