Sending Hugs – MFT Stamps

For MFT countdown day 2, I pulled out a supply I bought, but rarely use – embossing glaze. If you aren’t familiar with the Ranger/Tim Holtz embossing glazes, it is very similar to embossing powder, where you heat set and get a great shine and color, but glazes are translucent. They can be layered on top of a panel of ink blending or stamping and you would be able to see the background through the glaze, which can give you cool effects.

  1. Die cut the Roses All Around Cover-Up Die-namics twice from white cardstock. Adhere the two panels together.
  2. On another panel of white cardstock, cover the panel with sticky embossing ink. Using the cover plate as a guide, sprinkle three colors of embossing glaze on the panel. I used red, pink, and light salmon colored glazes.
  3. Heat emboss the panel in sections. Before the section has cooled, sprinkle bronze embossing powder on top of the glaze and heat set again. This gives you a cool look and adds gold shine.
  4. Complete the entire panel in this manner. And set aside to cool down completely.
  5. After the panel is cool, glue the cover up die cut on top. The panel will be warped, but add a foam sheet behind to flatten it out and give it dimension on an A2 card base.
  6. Ink blend a little MFT Cotton Candy ink to the rose centers to add a little depth.
  7. Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment from Banner Day Celebrations on Princess Pink cardstock. I used the leftover embossing glaze to emboss the sentiment.
  8. Die cut the sentiment and backer with the It’s a Banner Day Die-namics. The backer of the banner is from Fire Coral cardstock.
  9. Adhere the banner with a little gold twine to the card front.

It’s hard to see the beauty and shine of the background in photos. I really appreciate you stopping by and reading my blog! Have any favorite products yet? Stop by the MFT YouTube channel for more great content.
