Shake, Tap, Drop! Sponged Embossing


Hello! Today I am demonstrating a simple design that pops with all my Stately Flowers! Grab your embossing powder for this fun “sponged gold” technique using your daubers!  I promise you’ll look at your powders in a whole new way after this for adding artistic, one-of-a-kind elements to your cards!  Today I am using the Mock Orange from Stately Flowers 11. My inspiration for today's card was the gold and turquoise packaging I saw for a bottle of perfume at Ross! Inspiration is everywhere if you get out and look! Please enjoy!



Supplies:
Gina K. Pure Luxury Good as Gold (3 ¾” x 5”), White (3 7/8” x 5 1/8” and scrap approx 7/8” wide by 2-3" long), and Blue Lagoon or Passionate Pink (3 5/8” x 4 7/8”and A2 sized cardbase, 4 ¼” x 11”,  scored at 5 ½”) cardstock
Tsukineko Versamark pad, Gina K. Blue Lagoon or Passionate Pink ink pad
gold embossing powder
Adhesive, MISTI or acrylic blocks, heat gun, sponge dauber, scissors, adhesive foam squares

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love this technique, I think I prefer the powdery look and the tag on a diagonal best, but they’re all stunning! Thanks!
