This month’s theme is Embossing.

There are several types of embossing.  So you might see embossing folders, embossing paste, and powder embossing on this hop.  I'll be showing some powder embossing today.
 
Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop Embossing Card  Pic White Background  Snowflake Magic Specialty  Soft Shimmer Paper Combo Pack  Joseph's Coat Technique  Sparkling Snowflakes  Silver and White Sheer Ribbon  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create
The technique I'll be sharing is called Joseph's Coat Technique.  It's been around for a long time, but I haven't used it in a while.  I do have a video on this post.
 
My base is Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 4 1/4 and use a Bone Folder to get a good crisp fold.
 
For the background of the card, I used the Snowflake Magic Specialty Paper.  Cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Glue to the card front.
 
You'll also need a piece of the Bubble Bath from the Soft Shimmer Paper Combo Pack.  This piece measures 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.
Wait to add this piece to the card because we'll be adding a ribbon around it later.
 
We'll  be making the focal layer on a piece of Basic White 3 x 4 1/4.
 
I used Pool Party and Fresh Freesia ink for this project.  Add color over the white cardstock piece with Blending Brushes.  Add the color  in spaces here and there.  It's ok to leave a little white, but you'll want to cover most of the surface.  Start with a little color and build on it until you get the color you want.  If you have time, it might help to let this ink dry a little or run your heat tool over it.  I did not show doing that, but when I make the card again, I will.

Place all of the snowflakes from the Sparkling Snowflakes on a large clear block together.  Place them close to each other.  This picture is not that clear, but hopefully you can see on the video if you wish.  Stamp with Versamark ink.  Turn the pad upside down and stamp on the block as you see it.
Make sure to use an embossing buddy over the entire piece of paper first.  This also helps make sure the ink is dry.  Stamp the block of snowflakes over the paper.
Add clear embossing powder, from the Basics Embossing Powder pack, over the paper.  Flick off the extra powder and heat with your heat tool.  This is all a little hard to see since everything is clear, but it's so worth it.
 
Now comes that part that makes the show stopper.  Take a Boho Blue ink pad and run it over the embossed paper until the entire surface is covered.  This is a ink resist technique.  The clear embossing will not accept the ink.  Take a paper towel and wipe off the excess ink on the snowflakes.  It's magic!  I have mostly seen this technique using black or navy or espresso.  I think the Boho ink works well.

Glue the panel to the Bubble Bath Soft Shimmer paper.
 
Run Silver & White Sheer Ribbon around this layer and tie into a bow.  This ribbon looks so pretty with the silver in the Snowflake Magic Specialty Paper.
 
For the tag, I used the Tailor Made Tags dies.  First rub your white scrap with the embossing buddy.  Stamp the saying from So Sincere in Versamark.  Add silver embossing powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders.  Heat with a Heat Tool.  Cut out using one of the smallest tags centering around the saying.  I made the tag shorter.  Simply add the die about an inch or so above the bottom.  You can feel the tie kind of pop into place into the dots already there.  Tape if you wish to hold it all in place and cut again.  This is in the video.  Tie on the tag with silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trims.
 
Glue the panel to the center of the card.
 
Complete the card with embellishments.  I used Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems on one of the cards and Adhesive-Backed Glitter Sequins on the other.  Both look great!
 
Here's the video!
 


 
Thanks so much for joining me on the hop today.  I know you will be inspired by all of the stops on our hop.  I hope you enjoy!

I am so happy that you are here.  I have made three gift tags for you.  All look very different, yet they, for the most part, use some of the same basic parts.  I love how Stampin' Up! products coordinate so well.  I also love how you can get any look you want!
Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop October Tags  Countryside Corners dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Hope You Know  Metallics Embossing Powders  Magic Meadow dies  All 3 tags
All of these tags use the Countryside Corners dies for the basic shape.  The also use the Magical Meadows dies and the Hope You Know stamp set.  Let's look at each one.
 
Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop October Tags  Countryside Corners dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Hope You Know  Metallics Embossing Powders  Magic Meadow dies  All About Autumn DSP  Linen Thread  Oxidized Specialty
This tag uses the Oxidized Copper Specialty Paper and the All About Autumn 6 x 6 Designer Series Papers.  There is also a layer of  Pretty Peacock that is embossed with the Distressed Tile 3D EF.  I used the 3rd, 4th, and 5th dies in from the Countryside Corners dies.  The plants are in the Oxidized gold paper, Lost Lagoon card stock with Copper Clay berries, and All About Autumn holly leaves.  These are made using the Magical Meadow dies.  The berries were cut with Adhesive Sheets behind.  Add a bow of Linen Thread.  The saying is from Hope You Know.  It is embossed in Copper from the Metallics Embossing Powders on Pretty Peacock.  Add Copper Clay Textured Ribbon tied with Linen Thread.
 
Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop October Tags  Countryside Corners dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Hope You Know  Metallics Embossing Powders  Magic Meadow dies  Snowflake Magic Specialty  Silver Foil Specialty  Paper Florist dies
This tag uses the same dies from Countryside Corners.  The largest and smallest dies for this are from the Snowflake Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The center is from the same pack.  The plants, from Magical Meadow dies,  are from the silver part of the Silver & Gold 12 x 12 Adhesive Backed Glimmer paper, Silver Foil Specialty Pack, and Cherry Cobbler.  Adhesive Sheets were used on the Cobbler.  The flowers are made using the Paper Florist dies.  The White Glittered Organdy ribbon is behind the saying and also the tie at the top of the tag.  The Hope You Know saying is embossed in Silver again from the Metallics Embossing Powders.
 
Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop October Tags  Countryside Corners dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Hope You Know  Metallics Embossing Powders  Magic Meadow dies  Distressed Tile 3D EF
 
This tag is a more traditional one.  The largest layer is in Thick Very Vanilla.  The other layers for this one are both in Basic Very Vanilla.  The smallest is embossed with the Distressed Tile 3D EF.  There are dimensionals between the two larger layers.  The Magical Meadow dies are used for the plants.  Colors are Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler.  As for the other tags, I found it very helpful to use Adhesive Sheets behind the Cobbler berries.  The saying is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  The Silver & White Sheer Ribbon was used for this tag.

I don't know which one you might like best.  I am not a glitzy person, so traditional is my choice.  We are all different so hopefully there is one you like.  I was thinking more of a thank you tag for a hostess, or for anyone deserving a thank you.  It's the season.
I'm really anxious to see all of the post on the October hop.  I don't make tags very often, so I need these ideas!  Please check out the samples for everyone!  I know it will be time well spent.
Thanks so much for taking a look today!
