Spotlight Embossing Technique

NEW! Eye-Catching Ikat Photopolymer Stamp Set

Hi Friends! Today's card is a spin-off of a card I did years ago that STILL gets "Wows!" from everyone that sees it on my display board.  I had originally 'cased' this card but it's been so long I can't recall where I first got the idea.  Nonetheless, I've tweaked it a bit but still use "Lovely as a Tree" as the featured stamp set.  If you don't already have this stamp set, I encourage you to order it right away!  I promise you will love and use these stamps for years to come. 

I decided to call this technique "Spotlight Embossing", since I've combined the Spotlight Technique with Heat Embossing as well as Emboss Resist.  Here's a video to show you how easy it is to do:

Don't forget to let Santa know what's on your wish list for Christmas this year! Just print out this list and give to your Santa to pass on to his little elf (me!) and I'll choose something from your list that matches Santa's budget (yes, even Santa has a budget) and then deliver it wrapped and ready to go under the tree!

Enjoy the day and Happy Stamping!

  1. So I wake up at about 5:00am, decide to check out You Tube and what do I find but this beautiful card and great video that made me get out of my warm cozy bed to make a card...
    Thanks really...Thanks, I love it.

  2. Great project, thanks for sharing! It's beautiful, and so are you :) Nice to see you.

  3. Ahhh, thanks so much Deb - glad you liked this card! How did yours turn out? Did you use Lovely as a Tree or a different stamp set? I think it would be a fun technique to try with other stamps and punches too.

    And Melissa, thanks for your sweet comment too! Miss you! xo
