Easter Blossoms Cameo


Hi Stampers!
A very quick post today. For this A2 card, I used the new Easter Blossoms set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. LOVE THIS SET!! The branch was heat embossed with Black embossing powder onto Very Vanilla Cardstock. The cameo was made by stamping the little girls face with Very Vanilla Craft ink onto Basic Black cardstock then embossed using White embossing powder. Punch out with a 1" circle punch. The circle was mashed directly onto the Versamark pad then embossed using clear embossing powder. While the embossing was still hot (and moist), I recovered it with clear embossing powder and heated again. I did this 3-4 times. (Be sure to use a tweezer to hold the little circle while embossing. ) If you do not get to the embossing powder quickly enough, that is okay, just re-Versamark and emboss.
The bottom strip of Basic Black card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines embossing folder. I used some (retired) Very Vanilla Hodgepodge hardware to from her little face.
Hope you give this a try!

Happy Stampin'!
