Combine Challenges- Make a Card and Watch What Happens!!!

 Combining Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 541 and Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 564 produce this card: 

My Card


AHSC 541


CDC 564



My card was made with all discontinued products. It's important to use our supplies so instead of pulling out the new colors, I used my stash.
This is not a color combo I've used before so I stepped out of my box and I really like the look. It has a fall feel to me. The gold foil and purple shimmer trim added a bit of glitz. White embossing powder for the Happy Birthday sentiment popped!

The stamp set I used is 

Occasional Wreath Stamp + Thin Cuts




 How I cuts the pieces

Grape-cut 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Green Apple-cutx2 3/4 x 5 1/4
White Daisy-cut 5 1/4 x 2 1/4
Gold-cut 4 x 1
Nectarine-cut 3/4 x 3 3/4
Purple Shimmer trim-cut 3 3/4

Using the "Trapped Color" Embossing Technique to Make Cards

 Trapped color is a new to me technique that I decided to try, to my delight. It involves putting color down on cardstock. 

  • I used Distress Oxides and a rainbow colors in a diagonal on a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 white cardstock. 
  • I then took a detailed lacelike stencil and taped it over the color. 
  • Using my versamark ink pad I pressed it generously over the stencil being careful to not move the stencil at all. 
  • Carefully removed the stencil pulling the cardstock away and not brush it in anyway to disrupt the ink. 
  • I put it in my powder tray and generously sprinkled clear embossing powder over the entire card front.
  • Shake the cardstock to evenly distribute the powder
  • Shake the excess powder off onto the tray and return it to the jar.
  • Take a heater and completely melt the embossing grains till all the covered areas are shiny. 
  • Let oxide inks dry before taking Intense Black ink and a blending brush and go over the entire card front filling in the non embossed areas. 
  • Wipe off excess black ink.

Here is the result:
