Creating Embossed Backgrounds - Merry Moose

Ink It Up! – Heat Embossing – Merry Moose Card Backgrounds – Stampin’ Up!

By PaperedChef, September 19, 2020

In this tutorial, you will learn how to heat emboss a card background. Several stamp sets are featured in this tutorial including Merry Moose, Rooted in Nature, and Waterfront by Stampin’ Up! I shared tips and tricks for embossing including using the heat tool, embossing buddy, Versamark and embossing powders. First, I stamped trees onto Night of Navy cardstock using Versamark ink. Then, I used White Embossing Powder to cover the large trees and then heat embossed them. Then, I used smaller trees from the Merry Moose stamp set and the Rooted in Nature stamp sets using Versamark ink. Then, I used Shimmer White embossing powder (retired) to cover the trees and heat embossed them. You can use any other fine embossing powder like silver or glitter powder. The concept is to use different types of powder and different sized trees to add texture and dimension to the card background. I also demonstrated how to stamp the trees onto Whisper White cardstock using Shaded Spruce ink. Again, I used different sized stamps for the tree scene. After stamping and off stamping the background scene, I used the trees from the Waterfront stamp set to stamp over the background in Versamark ink. Then, I used White Embossing Powder and heat embossed the top layer of trees. The top layer was not as detailed as the background. This created a scene where the trees are just partially covered in snow. After embossing card backgrounds, I shared how to color the moose from the Merry Moose stamp set using Stampin’ Blends. I used Dark and Light Crumb Cake for the body and Ivory for the antlers. I used Real Red and Wink of Stella for the Santa Hat. I punched out the moose using the Moose Punch and added snowflakes for the night sky.
