Black Embossed Best New Year Card – Stampin’ Up!

I’m sharing a little sneak peek at the new Banners Framelits Dies along with a cool technique for using clear embossing powder on a dark panel.  I used the Best New Year stamp set and Positively Chevron background stamp from Stampin’ Up! to create my card today.  I used the Banners Framelits Dies from the upcoming 2014 Occasions Catalog to cut out and frame my sentiment too.

Best New Year - Stamp With Amy K

I started by stamping the Positively Chevron background stamp (wood mount and clear mount) on a Basic Black panel in VersaMark Ink.  I let that panel dry, then adhered it to a Basic Black card base.

Then stamped the image from the Best New Year stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in VersaMark Ink on a Basic Black panel, sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I cut the sentiment out with the new Banners Framelits die (available Jan 3) and layered it over the top of a banner that I’d cut from Window Sheets with the next larger Banners Framelits die.  I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Best New Year 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I colored two Rhinestone Basic Jewels and one Large Rhinestone Basic Jewel with my black Sharpie Marker.  I adhered the two smaller rhinestones to the banner and I adhered the Large Rhinestone to a 1/2″ Circle Punch from the Window Sheets.  I used a Glue Dot to adhere the Large Rhinestone and Window Sheet punch to the card front.

I finished the inside of the card by stamping the Best New Year image in StazOn Jet Black Ink on a Whisper White panel, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement.

I hope that you like this card, it looks really cool in real life.  I’m not sure that the pictures are doing it justice.  🙂
