AECP Level 2: Impressive Heat Embossing


This is my 8th card for level 2 of AECP. This card is based on Impressive Heat Embossing conducted by Svetlana Marchenko. I tried Ombre heat embossing for the first time. I did not use a solid stamp as suggested but have tried to apply the technique on a background stamp.

For this card I have used the stamp from Beautiful Blossoms stamp set. I took a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock in size 4” x 5 ¼” and stamped the image using Versamark Ink.

I then applied the Ranger Superfine embossing powder in three different colours Gold, Silver and Rose Gold. I took one colour at a time and poured very little quantity in an area. I manoeuvred the powder by titling and turning the cardstock, this way I was able to apply different colour embossing powders to one image. Once the whole image was covered with embossing powder, I heat set the embossing powder.

Next, I stamped the sentiment You Inspire Me from Altenew Label Love stamp set. I then heat embossed a strip of paper with Rose Gold embossing powder and matted the sentiment strip on it.

I then took an A2 size card base and to make it all cohesive, I heat embossed the card base using the same Rose Gold embossing powder and then adhered the card panel to the card base using some foam tape.

Finally, I attached the sentiment strip to the card panel and used some Coffee coloured Sisal in between to add some more texture.

Hope you like my card today and thank you for visiting my blog.

AECP Level 2: Beyond Basic Backgrounds


This is my fifth card for the level 2 of AECP. This card is based on Beyond Basic Backgrounds class conducted by the very talented Lydia Evans. I have followed the technique taught by her in lesson 3, Foiling Stamped Images Without A Laminator, but with a twist as I used a laminator. Hope you like it.


  • On a Neenah Solar White 80 lbs. cardstock (size 4” x 5”), I used the Moroccan Mosaic stamp set, and heat embossed the image with Ranger Superfine clear embossing powder.
  • I then used some Couture Creations Copper Foil and ran this piece through my laminator.
  • For all my friends who stay here in New Zealand, I used a laminator which I bought from Warehouse Stationery in an A4 size. The brand is called Leitz. I did pre-heat the laminator for 50 minutes before running my piece. I did feed the piece twice for perfect results.
  • The Couture Creations foil did leave speckles at places where there was no embossing powder, but I liked the effect.
  • Next, I cut this ready background into two parts, one measuring 4”x2¼” and the other 4”x1 ½”.

Flower Bunch:

  • I used the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set, Green Fields Ink cubes and Tea Party ink cubes to create the arrangement.
  • For the fillers I used my Zig marker in yellow. I coloured the leaves of the fillers using a water bush and the Altenew Frayed Leaf ink.
  • Once I was satisfied with the bunch, I used my Scan and cut for cutting the arrangement.


  • For the sentiment I have used my favourite stamp set Altenew Label Love.


  • First, I took a piece of Neenah Solar White #110 cardstock measuring 4” x 5 ¼”. To this I stuck the foiled background pieces. Broader one aligned with the top edge and the narrow one aligned with the bottom edge.
  • Then using foam tape, I stuck the floral arrangement and the sentiment.
  • Finally, I stuck this ready piece to an A2 size card base.

I hope I have been able to inspire you a little today, and you will also give this technique a try.

Thank you for stopping by.
