Three of the NEW! ColorBox® Pigment Ink colors were used: Caliente, Spa and Cement


And two of the NEW! ColorBox® Art Screens: Groovy and Lovely


First, each screen was used to emboss the design onto pieces of kraft cardstock. I used my Wizard by Spellbinders and stacked as follows: emboss mat, stencil, cardstock, embossing pad and cut mat. Check online to see how to create your “sandwich” with other machines. I tacked my cardstock in place to the screen before embossing using a piece of blue painter’s tape. This way the screen stays in place on the cardstock, making it easier to proceed with the next step – inking the embossed design.

Use ColorBox® Stylus & TipsColorBox® Color Blender or ColorBox® Art Dauber to apply ink to embossed areas while screen is still in place. Use Caliente, shaded with a little Cement for the hearts, and Spa, shaded with Cement for the waves.

The screens were then removed and the inked cardstocks allowed to sit 2-3 minutes before they were embossed using ColorBox® Clear Embossing Powder. Allowing the ink to sit and absorb into the paper a bit before embossing creates a more pebbled look.

Finally, the pieces were cut, distressed around the edges with the matching ink color, then adhered to a kraft cardstock card front.

A piece of cotton trim from Hydrangea Hippo and some chipboard letters finish off the card. The chipboard letters were inked using Cement Ink, distressed with Caliente and Spa inks, then embossed with the Clear Embossing Powder.

Cardstock from Bazzill and Zip Dry Glue from Beacon Adhesives.

About Tami Sanders

Ink, paper and glue are a few of my favorite things. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums, and don’t really have a set “style”; fresh, graphic or vintage, I like them all.  Likewise, I also find creating a variety of projects challenging. I design scrapbook pages, cards, mixed media projects, altered books, jewelry and more. I have taught scrapbooking and paper crafting classes locally as well as at regional and national conventions. Sharing the joy of inking and paper crafting feeds my creative soul. You can usually find me scouring estate sales and flea markets on the weekends hunting for unique tidbits and trinkets to use in my classes and for my projects. I'm excited to be rejoining the Clearsnap Design Team. I am fortunate to have worked with Clearsnap for over 10 years.
