Baby Animals....

Hi Blank Page Muse Fans!
Are you enjoying this month's "embossing" theme?
So many fabulous projects from the DT to inspire you to get creating and join our monthly challenge!

Today I am sharing some "dry embossed" cards using tamps from the super cute "Baby Animals" sets available at the Blank Page Muse Store!




Supplies:
Blank Page Muse Stamp Sets: Baby Animals 1 & Baby Animals 2
Blank Page Muse Stamp: Happy Birthday - several available in store - (used here from the Steampunk Circus Set)
Embossing Folders
Watercolour Paper
Brushos Pigment Powders or similar
Base cards
Scrap white card for stamping
Scraps of muslin cloth
Tools: embossing machine, water spritzer, scissors, paper trimmer, edge distresser
General supplies: glue, double sided tape, mounting tape, colouring mediums (Copics used here), black ink pad
Instructions:
Start by gathering your items for embossing so the embossed pages have time to dry whilst you are stamping and colouring.

Open your embossing folder and sprinkle several colours of Brushos on the front flap.


Spritz with water. Don't you just love the effect??!!


Place your watercolour paper onto the spritzed side and close the folder ready for winding through your embossing machine.


You will get a lovely result from embossing with the water and ink through the machine. Depending on how much water you spritzed you will probably be able to achieve another embossing or if you think you need to add a little more colour sprinkle some more Brusho over the folder and emboss again. A great way to emboss scraps of paper for small projects like ATC's etc. You can use tags as well for a great background effect.


Below are a few different designs. You can get some really interesting colour combos if you refrain from cleaning the folder in between colour changes! Once dry you can then cut these pieces to size for your creation.


Now to stamp the cuties from the Baby Animal Sets using your favourite black ink pad. I have used stamps from both sets for my cards. Great for cards for new borns and kids! and you will notice I've used the "Koala" seeing as I am an "Aussie" - perfect LOL!


Colour the stamped images with your favourite colouring medium in co-ordinating colours. I have used Copic Markers to colour these little babies. Then fussy cut your stamped images ready to use on your cards.

Using the Black Ink stamp the "Happy Birthday" (or sentiment of your choice) onto white card and cut out.

Now to assemble all of the elements to complete the cards! Trim the dry embossed card to slightly smaller than your card front and distress the edges.

Edge the "Happy Birthday" sentiments with co-ordinating coloured markers.
Use double sided tape or glue to attach the embossed card to your card front along with a scrap of muslin cloth. Add tape to the sentiment. Add mounting tape pieces to your Baby Animal. Arrange and adhere to the card front.

Just love how these turned out!!
Hope you have enjoyed my post today! Make sure you have some fun embossing and join this month's challenge!
Remember we always share our creations in the Facebook Group along with updates, new releases and fun!!
Happy stamping with "Blank Page Muse"!!!
