Inked and Embossed, part one

Hello blog visitors, Kirsten here.  I’ve been trying various things with stamps & embossing folders & I thought I’d share a few with you.  I made a total of five cards, so I will split this tutorial into two & post the second half tomorrow.

I started by stamping the Artemio collaged keys stamp onto white hammered textured cardstock with Old Paper distress ink, then blending Antique Linen DI over the image.

Next I embossed the cardstock with the Without a Lock embossing folder.

Swipe the Vintage Photo & Walnut Stain distress inks over the raised areas – not putting an pressure on the blending tool will achieve this.  Add more ink until you’re happy with how the piece looks, drying in between layers of ink.

I then cut the card with a Spellbinders label die & used it on this card.

On the next piece of cardstock I blended blue distress inks; Broken China, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky, again drying in between layers.

I stamped the Artemio stamp in Chipped Sapphire & immediately applied a dark blue mica powder, fixing the powder with a spritz of water.

Despite the sheen from the mica powder this looked a little flat, so I embossed it with the Lattice embossing folder.

Here is a section cut into a tag on this card.  I used the same embossing folder on the red core’dinations & sanded it slightly.
