12 Days of Embellished Ornaments: #7

Day 7 of 12 days of the Embellished Ornaments sampler!

This one was a little tricky but I was determined to use that Cup of Cheer stamp set.

The card base is Blackberry Bliss, then a layer of 4″ x 5-1/4″ white card stock then another layer of Blackberry Bliss card stock.  I embossed a 1/2″ strip of gold foil card stock with the Boughs & Berries embossing folder.

First, swipe your Embossing Buddy across the card stock to get rid of any static or oils from fingers.

Carefully use a sponge dauber or marker to ink up just the words on the inside of the stamp.

If I missed any little parts or it was too tight for the dauber, I used my Blackberry Bliss marker to fill in.

Before stamping the blackberry, carefully ink the wreath with versamark.

Stamp on your paper but don’t add the gold embossing powder yet!  Wait a minute to be sure the Blackberry Bliss ink has dried.  Otherwise the gold powder will stick to it also.

After I stamped it, I can hardly see the versamark inked wreath but it’s there.

The Versamark area won’t dry while you are waiting.

Pour your gold embossing powder over image.  Tap off excess.  Remove any unwanted bits of powder with a little, dry paintbrush.

After you heat your powdered areas, cut with a #6 circle framelit and embellish! I used some gold sequins and rhinestones.  I touched a gold sharpie over the rhinestones to make them look more gold tone. Add some gold cord and a gold ornament topper.

I also embossed the middle banner separately on another piece of white and cut it out.  I glued it right over the exact area so it is embossed gold for the banner.
