Pantone Color Of The Year 2021
Pantone is hit the reset button and graced us with inspirational colors for 2021. For more information on the Pantone Color Of The Year 2021, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, head over to the official Pantone page.
For the yellow in these three handmade cards, I used Lemon Sorbet from Summer Scoops WOW! Trio. This is a gorgeous translucent glitter embossing powder. For a brighter yellow try, Primary Lemon Yellow embossing powder.
To represent Ultimate gray, I used Altenew Silver Stone Crisp Dye Ink for ink blending and Curious Metallic Lustre cardstock. These grays are warmer than Ultimate Gray. You could also use Metallic Silver embossing powder.
Stencil Heat Embossing
Stencil heat embossing is one of the easiest ways to create heat embossed panels. Choosing a glitter embossing powder like, Lemon Sorbet, adds extra sparkle to the background.
Simon Says Stamp Stencil Heat Embossing
CZ Design Peony Bouquet
Here, I used Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Peony Bouquet Stencil. Peony Bouquet is one of my favorite stencils. I love the arrangement of the flowers and the negative space left in the upper right-hand corner is perfect for small stamped sentiments.
Both of these cards were embossed with Lemon Sorbet embossing powder, but check out how different they look in the close ups. The glitter has a bit of a silver sheen to it which blends into the Curious Metallic Lustre cardstock. This adds the appearance of more texture to the design.
At first, I didn’t like the Lustre cardstock background, but it ended up being my favorite of these three card design ideas. I finished off these cards with Simon Say Stamp + CZ Design Paper Hugs Die and Hugs Die set.
Altenew Stencil Heat Embossing
Scallop Builder Stencil
Altenew Scallop Builder Stencil, as well as Altenew’s other builder stencils, are great for two-color backgrounds. First, I ink blended Altenew Silver Stone Crisp Dye Ink. Next, I shifted the stencil and heat embossed the secondary pattern with Lemon Sorbet embossing powder.
As you can see above, I didn’t allow the gray ink blending to dry all the way before heat embossing. Therefore, the Lemon Sorbet embossing powder stuck to the gray dye ink. To avoid this make sure you allow your panel to air dry or heat set it before applying your embossing powder.
Normally, I would redo the card, but today, I went with it. To finish the card, I die cut Lustre cardstock with Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Hello Dies set and Oyster Gray Nuvo Crystal Drops.
