The other day I decided to make a bunch of card focal elements so I'd have them ready to go when I wanted them. In the picture above, you see some examples.
- Acrylic and/or Rubber Stamps (most were from JustRite as I like having the coordinating dies for ease of cutting them out!)
- Cutting dies (Spellbinders/JustRite that coordinate with my stamps) with Grand Caliber or other die cutting machine
- Glossy white cardstock
- Alcohol inks & Alcohol Blending Solution & Applicator with felt pads
- Embossing ink pad
- Embossing Powder in a variety of colors & Heat Gun
- Cut out a variety of shapes from the glossy white cardstock using the dies. I like the Grand Caliber for this as I can cut out so many at one time!
- Color the cut-out shapes as you like with the alcohol inks and blending solution on the applicator with felt pads, and let your shapes dry (doesn't take long).
- Stamp images and sentiments on them using embossing ink.
- Before the ink dries, add embossing powder in color of your choosing, and then heat emboss with the heat gun.
