I started by stamping out the outline version of “Hey You” from the appropriately named, Giant Hey You Stamp Set. I used Versamark Ink along with Clear Embossing Powder. I used my go-to rainbow Distress Oxide Ink Colours: Spun Sugar, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina and Seedless Preserves. Using a sponge dauber, I just swiped the ink over the letters then took a tissue and wiped the ink off the embossed portions of the stamp.
I then fussy cut each letter. As you get to know me, you’ll find out how much I love to fussy cut (is that weird?)! And of course, I added foam adhesive to each letter!
To keep the emboss resist theme going, I used the Diamond Deco Background stamp with the same clear embossing powder. I lightly inked the edges and corners with whatever Salvaged Patina ink I had on my dauber. This brought out the design only slightly as I didn't want it to over power the sentiment!
I lined up the letters onto the embossed panel and foam mounted that to a white card base. It was at this point I decided to add a few scalloped “embellishments”. Those sweet, little bumps come from the Accents (Background Builder) Stamp Set. They were also heat embossed and inked in the Carved Pumpkin Ink.
I really love how this card turned out and hope you do too!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day and see you soon!
