Baroque Revamp

Created by Donna calley. Images copyright Stampin' Up! 1998-2009

I made this card for my November workshop and absolutely love it. It is very quick to make, very stylish and fabulous.........well, it was until I blinged it up and now it is amazing! Though I am disappointed that the embossing doesn't look so good on the photo as in real life!

I have embossed the images by double inking the image (versamark first and then Choc Chip Ink). Then it was clear embossed and heated with the SU! heat tool.

I have then put a gold brad through the embellishment (though next time I'd use the clear rhinestone brad to make it really 'posh'!) and finished off using the ever gorgeous 5/8" choc chip grosgrain ribbon.

If you have never tried embossing you really must. It is absolutely stunning and so easy to do. And to make it even easier I have a special on until the 12th July, get 10% off the SU! heat tool when you purchase $50 or more SU! product. (Note: this offer is one that I am offering as an Independent Demonstrator and is not available anywhere else to my knowledge).

Stamp set: Barogue Motif (check this one out on there are over 2000 designs on there just using this one stamp set!!)

Ink: Choc chip and versamark

Card stock: Choc chip and Pretty in Pink

Accessories: Heat tool, clear emboss powder, scalloped circle, 1 1/4" circle and 1 3/8" circle punches, gold brad and 5/8" choc chip grosgrain ribbon.

  1. I love what you did with this card. It is perfect for using to introduce heat embossing in a class. It adds so much to the image! As always, beautiful work!
