Hello there! Today’s tutorial is about texture with Fireworks and Embossing Powder! Do you know that you can create a splattered effect with the embossing powder? Let me share the project with you.
Time: 60 minutes
Take a selection of Fireworks! colors of your preference to create the first part of the splatter effect. First, spray a single color over your craft mat. Grab a piece of white smooth cardstock or any type of cardstock and press softly over the mat. Let the paper dry naturally or speed the process with the heat tool if you don’t want to wait a few minutes.
Repeat the above process with all the colors that you wanted to use on your background. In my sample, I used Potter’s Clay, Paris Dusk and Bamboo Leaves.
While the background is in drying process, you can work on the card base. Select a color of VersaFine Clair that coordinates with your background. Stamp lineal images over it. If you want, you can emboss it with clear embossing powder. In my sample, I used VersaFine Clair Shady Lane and don’t emboss de leaves.
In a separate piece of White Smooth Cardstock, I stamped a floral image with VersaFine Clair Glamorous and then covered it with Clear Embossing Powder. Additionally, with a tiny spoon or spatula, I sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder over the flowers and leaves, trying to keep the powder inside of the lines.
With a paint brush, I removed the excess of the powder around the borders of the flower and then, melted the powder with the heat tool.
As you may have noticed, to create the splattered effect, I didn’t use ink, just the powder.
To continue with the process, I resized the background layer in angle. Then, I die cut the floral image with a coordinated die. Additionally, I pasted all the pieces over the card base using crafty foam tape to add more
dimension to the card.
As final touch, stamp a sentiment in a different color and paste over the decorated card with crafty foam.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget that you can use different types of ink and embossing powders to create your own look!
Hello friends! This is Linh (or LV Handcrafted on all the socials). Today I’m playing with Fireworks! I start off by using what would normally be used to create a shaped 3D flower and I cut it out of a scrap piece of cardstock to use as a stencil. I lined that over black cardstock and sprayed the Grape Jelly Fireworks! Then I rotated the flower stencil to offset the petals. I sprayed the Lulu Lavendar Fireworks! And without shifting the stencil, I sprayed a bit of the Lilac Posies. What’s fabulous about these Fireworks! sprays is they are opaque and as you can see are gorgeous even on black cardstock. They have a beautiful shimmer and shine!
Hello there! Today’s tutorial is about a Birthday Card using a background stamp but adding texture and color. To make this, I used VersaFine Clair Nocturne, Clear Embossing Powder and Memento Markers.
Time: 45 minutes
Take a piece of white smooth cardstock, ink well your background stamp with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink and stamp your image pressing hard to obtain a crispy image. You can use any stamping tool.
Cover the stamped image with Clear Embossing Power or MBoss. Melt the powder with the heat tool.
To enhance the details of the stamp, color it partially with Memento Markers. The VersaFine Clair in is a safe ink to work with these Markers or with any type of Alcohol Markers.
Combine the tones of your markers to have different shadows. In my sample I used Memento Markers in colors Angel Pink, New Sprout, Pistachio, Bamboo Leaves, Rose Bud, Desert Sand, Cantaloupe, Tangelo and Summer Sky.
If you want you can resize the stamped layer and paste it over a card base. You can use Tear It! Tape to paste it.
In a separate piece of white cardstock stamp the birthday sentiment using the same products used to create the background. I used VersaFine Clair Nocturne and Clear Embossing Powder.
Finalize your card pasting the sentiment with crafty foam tape.

Versa Clair Fine is now my favorite pigment ink! So versatile and allowed me to create a beautifully colored card in just a few steps. This is one of the few cards that my husband has asked me to specifically make for a friend, it was easy to do with just a few inks, stamps, and dies!
Time: 2 hours
Stamp sunflower images on yellow cardstock with Versa Fine Clair Cheerful and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Stamp leaf images on light green paper in Versa Fine Clair Green Oasis and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Die cut with matching dies.
Place flowers and leaves face down in matching shaping mold and mist lightly with water. As the images are heat embossed, they will stay sharp and crisp. Close mold and pressure emboss.
Remove flowers and leaves from mold and set aside to dry. Once dry assemble flowers with On Point Glue, adding black glitter to centers. (Not shown) Set aside to dry.
Ink the edges of an A7 size card with and ink dauber and Versa Fine Clair Green Oasis. Set aside to dry, as the ink is very juicy.
Sunflowers are a rustic flower, so corrugated cardstock seemed to be a good choice for a background. Versa Fine Clair in Cheerful and Summertime are inked randomly on the corrugated cardstock with ink daubers.
Ink the sentiment with Versa Fine Clair in Green Oasis and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Die cut with die from the Eyelet Frame Gateway set. I trimmed off a portion of the sentiment, then edged the sentiment with Versa Fine Clair in Summertime.
Die cut a Border from the Regal Boarder set using light orange paper. Gently shade the edges with Versa Fine Clair Summertime and an ink dauber.
