Be Confident Be Brave Be Amazing Mixed Media Card Video Tutorial

Hello everyone, this is Yana Smakula sharing another cardmaking video tutorial.

Today I’d like to show you a mixed media background card featuring several products from Seth Apter. I used one of Seth Apter embossing folders to create a vibrant background for this encouragement card.

First I stamped the embossing folder design onto watercolor paper with the help of gelatos (just like I did in this video here) and later dry embossed identical design (I made sure to offset it) for a one of a kind look in my Platinum die cutting and embossing machine.

You can by all means stamp and emboss the design at the same time, but I wanted to make sure stamped and embossed impressions would not match, so this is why I first stamped and later embossed.

Spellbinders supplies:

S3-238 Seth Apter Triplex Etched Dies

SEL-002 Seth Apter Em-Bossing Fold’ers Gridiron 5 X 7 In Single Sided

PL-001 Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing machine

T-001 Tool ‘N One

Other supplies:

White cardstock; Watercolor paper; Distress paint and ink; Water spray bottle; Ink blending tools; Gelatos; Enamel Dots; Clear stamp (Simon Says Stamp – Uplifting Thoughts); Clear embossing ink; White embossing powder; Heat tool; Glue; Foam adhesive.
