Group of Seven Stenciling over Heat Embossing

Click on link above to see all the Group of Seven Cardmakers Card Samples:-)

This video by Gina K Stenciling over Heat Embossing is very helpful.
This is a fun and easy technique.

Gina's Steps!
  • Ink up a background stamp with Versamark ink, clear ink or white pigment ink
  • Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat set
  • Place stencil over top and secure with tape
  • Sponge inks over stencil
  • Use paper towel to wipe off any inks that are sitting on top of your heat embossing (resist).  Remove tape and stencil.

I am sharing 3 cards using this wonderful technique.

I used the stencils (gift from a dear friend) in the 1st and 2nd cards for the 1st time.
Sharing them with our dear GO7 Cardmaker Darnell's NBUS Blog:-)

  2. What a fun and fabulous technique this appears to be. It's clear to see how you have enjoyed it with these wonderful cards! I have bookmarked so I can see what I might try it with. Time is limited right now and I have soooo many things to catch up on, but it's good to feel the spark again. Thanks, Nancy!

    1. I am so happy we have got your creative juices flowing again, Leslie. I know it sure helped me too and especially now that I am an Honorary Member on this awesome creative Group of Seven Cardmakers Girls, who are all forever friends to both of us:-) Love and Hugs....Nancy

  3. Oh, Nancy! What delightful creations using this fun technique! That French script has stolen my heart!

  4. three great cards Nancy, I love your Sunflower one, so pretty with the script background. ♥

  5. Three lovely designs Nancy! Each of your stencils is SO pretty and colorful - both the white embossed text and dots make for pretty backgrounds for the images! Julia xx

  6. You've done an awesome job with this technique, Nancy! Love that Summer Bouquet with the embossed script and the sunflowers using the same script! The dots give a more contemporary feel and what a fun stencil!

    1. Thank you Bonnie...this has been such a fun and easy technique. I would like to try it for Christmas cards:-) Love and Hugs...Nancy

  7. Three beauties, Nancy! Love the colours you've used on the first two cards, bright and happy. Your sunflowers are so lovely and perfect for this time of year. This is such a great combination of easy techniques ... it's very addictive! :) xx

  8. Great cards with this technique, Nancy. I like them all but those sunflowers are awesome! Can't wait to see your next card too.

  9. Beautiful cards, Nancy! I love the technique you all played with! The script works so well with the flowers! I love the way you inked the main flower in your first card! It resembles a succulent to me and the sunflowers are so warm and inviting! Sue N

  11. All three cards are fantastic, Nancy! I love the wonderful effect of the Stenciling over Heat Embossing technique.
