CAS-Fridays and Crafting of Hue Blog Hop

Hi everyone!! Today the CAS-Fridays Design Team is doing a blog hop. We are featuring the
CAS-ual Fridays Stencils. There is also a SALE on stencils!! They will be $5.00 until July 12, 2020!!!

I created a card where I used the Curtis Stencil to dry emboss AND heat emboss for a simple look.

The key to dry embossing with a stencil is the layering "sandwich" you do through your die cut machine. I have an old Sizzix Big Shot so I use a Sizzix Texturz Impressions Pad and Sizzix Texturz Silicone Rubber Mat for my sandwich.

I have an old tabbed adapter plate so I open it to the right tab, place one standard cutting mat down, with the silicone rubber mat on top of that. I usually clean my silicone mat with a lint brush but when I was making this card, I couldn't find where it was in my room!!

Next I place my paper over the rubber mat, with my stencil over the paper.

I then top off the sandwich with impressions pad and run everything through my machine.

When you take your paper out, it looks like this. You see the top where there is a line from the outside of the stencil? This DOES NOT always happen. It depends on the stencil. I worked around this by cutting my embossed paper down to make it disappear. If I had not cut it down, I was going to put a strip of gold cardstock in between the embossing and the edge so you would think it was part of the design!!!

For the next step, I die cut my sentiment from gold cardstock and fun foam using the "happy" from the Happy Hanukkah Fri-dies. I adhered the gold die cut over the foam and set it aside to dry.

While the die cut was drying, I used a gold embossing ink to smear over a white cardstock strip and then heat embossed this with gold embossing powder. I adhered the strip onto an A2, top folding card front, and then glued the red embossed cardstock around this.

I masked and heat embossed the birthday sentiment from the Whole Shebang stamp set on  a white strip of cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

My last step was to I adhere the die cut sentiment to my card front using Ranger Multi Matte Adhesive.

This card was so simple to create and using your stencils to dry emboss just extends the uses of your supplies!!!
