I have something really fun for you to try today. 

Grab a piece of your Crumb Cake cardstock.

Find a stamp with some detail, but is open line art.

Rub the Embossing Buddy well all over the cardstock. 
Stamp your image in VersaMark ink.

At the Heat Station, cover the stamping 
with white embossing powder. 
Heat to set.

Grab some good quality colored pencils. 
Color in the image.

There! Doesn't that feel good? And doesn't it look GREAT??!?

I love doing this. And I love the look of it even more! What unexpected lovely results can be achieved by combining the unlikely team of kraft cardstock, white heat embossing and colored pencils!

In fact, in writing this post, I decided to go downstairs to my Creation Station as soon as I am finished here and do this for a Christmas card! Stay tuned for those results!

Now, get out those supplies, and give this nifty trick a try! Have fun!

  3. This is a great look, I love the white embossing with the kraft card.

    1. Thanks, Julie! Now that I've resurrected this technique in my brain, I am going to be using it a lot!
