Sponged Embossing

Here's a quick and easy technique to give a bit of a lift to embossing on a card.

In the card below I used the Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder on Very Vanilla cardstock put through the Big Shot.  Then I lightly sponged the embossing with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry inks.  The panel is then put on a Pumpkin Pie cardstock base.  The greeting is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, then punched with the Curly Label Punch.  It is then layered on a Piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock which is punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.


In the card below I used Very Vanilla cardstock in the Finial Press embossing folder, put through the Big Shot.  Then I lightly sponged with Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry and Early Espresso ink.  The panel is then put on a Rich Razzleberry cardstock base.  The greeting is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink on Very Vanilla and then punched out with the Scallop Circle punch.  It is then layered onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock punched out with the Large Scallop Circle punch.

Incidentally, the colour combinations I used came straight out of Stampin Up's Colour Coach, for colours that go with Rich Razzleberry.
