Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to the Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop. If you are coming from the fabulous Emily Leiphart’s blog, you are in the right place.Altenew-FathersDayCard-BestDad-MayPark-1

I created a one layer Father’s Day card using ink blending and heat embossing techniques, inspired my own cards, THIS and THIS. I used the cool images from the Best Dad stamp set to create my own embossed background.

FathersDayCard-BestDad-MayPark-5

I used 4 different shades of teal from Altenew Crisp Dye Ink Pads for ink blending. If you don’t have Altenew inks, you can use any dye ink pads you may already have. Don’t you love the white dots between on the ombre inked background? 🙂

I made a video tutorial to show you how to make this card from start to finish. I’m also sharing some personal story at the end of my video. You can watch it below or on YouTube channel.

How to Make a Card with Ombre Inked Background & Gold Embossed Images

  1. Cut Neenah Solar White 110LB Cardstock into 4.25″x5.5″ using Tim Holtz paper trimmer.
  2. Treat the cardstock with EK success embossing power to prevent any stray powder from sticking to unwanted areas.
  3. Stamp the images from the Best Dad stamp set with Versamark watermark ink. (I used the mini MISTI stamping tool because I wanted to stamp several images at once.)
  4. Sprinkle some Hero Arts Copper embossing powder over the stamped images and tap the excess powder off the cardstock. (I used a small paintbrush and a tweezer to flick away any stray powder.)
  5. Heat set the images with Wagner embossing tool gun until they are completely melted.
  6. Ink the colors using ink blending tools and Altenew Crisp dye ink pads: Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, Lagoon, and Emerald over the embossed background. 
  7. Attach the ink blended panel onto the A2 card using Altenew glue tape.
  8. Add white dots between gaps using Signo white gel pen.

I created another card with the same design. For my second card, I used the Hero Arts Platinum embossing powder and blended in the same ink colors with light pressure to create a more soft look.  Which one do you like better?

    Love both cards but I particularly like the combination of the copper embossing with the deep turquoise colour. I’m mad on this colour at the moment!

    Copper!!!! If you hadn’t given a choice, I’d have been ok, but my current favorite color combo is copper with almost any shade of blue–from almost green to almost purple! Thanks!
