Did you know that you can emboss an image even if you don't have the particular coloured embossing powder? I embossed the sentiment and guitar on this card. This would be a great card for a teenager.
This is how to emboss without coloured embossing powder. Ink your stamp with VersaMark (#102283) as usual, then ink the stamp with the coloured ink then stamp onto the card. Apply Clear Stampin' Emboss powder (#109130) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). So if you have Clear embossing powder you can emboss any colour you require. The guitar is from the Country Livin' stamp set (#c141925, #w141922), the sentiment is from Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178) and the splotches are from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (#c130517, #w130514). The splotches were stamped with Crumb Cake ink (#121685) and Dapper Denim ink (#141394) using the stamping off method. Dapper Denim ink was also used for the embossing.The cardstock is Dapper Denim (#141419) and Very Vanilla (#106550) with Moroccan Designer Series Paper (#141645). The oval was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372), and the banner was cut using the Bunch of Banners Framelits (#141488). Stampin' Dimesionals (#104430) were used to attach the sentiment to the card.
Now, I wanted to show what a difference just a couple of changes can make to a card. Here is a very basic card using the same stamp sets as above -
Then using framelits and the Dapper Denim splotches-
Then adding a piece of DSP, reducing the size of the Very Vanilla card and embossing the guitar and sentiment as on the first card.
