More Just Add... Embossing

It's Just Add... Embossing this week at Just Add Ink, so I thought I'd share another embossing card with you.  I love using this technique.  You clear emboss an image over patterned paper, then use a brayer to coat the entire panel with ink.  Wipe the excess ink off your embossed image with a tissue, and you're done! 

I used this technique for this card using black ink, so the patterned paper was completely covered where there was no embossing, but I love how this card has turned out using Tangerine Tango!  I love that the pattern can still be seen.

The all important side shot...

Stamp sets - Medallion
Cardstock - So Saffron, Haiku DSP
Inks - Versamark, Tangerine Tango
Accessories - Clear embossing powder, heat tool, brayer, corner rounder



  1. Great card Danielle. I have done this technique on Whisper White cardstock with stamped images underneath but never thought to do it on DSP, what a great idea! Must try it.

  2. Snap! I used this technique for my card this week! I love what you have done here! I have many possibilities running through my head now! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  3. I have never seen this before- and I love it!! I will definately be having a go.

  4. This is fantastic. I love the look of the DSP and how its still peeking through. Wonderful

  5. Wow! This is very striking! Neat technique! Love how you used DSP under it. It is a stretch for me to stamp on DSP, much less emboss on it, so thanks for the reminder and beautiful inspiration!

  6. WOW amazing. I love it.

  7. Absolutly gorgeous as always Danielle. Never thought to use this technique with dsp...will be trying it out for sure!

  8. YES! You are a Minimalist. A DYNAMITE Minimalist. My heart's desire is to be half as good a Minimalist as you. Thank you so much for sharing how you did this. I wouldn't in a million years have thought to use DSP in this way. The beauty of it is that I've inherited a bunch of DSP I wouldn't otherwise I can cover up enough to make it useful.

  9. Wowzers Danielle this is fantastic. I've never thought of doing that and is such a great technique! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. i tried this and mine didn't turn out so well! my DSP didn't show through (though it was monotone, working with the new catalog... your DSP isn't in it...) and when i inked over it, the remaining pattern was washed out. guess i'll try it with another color/pattern. maybe mine was just too blah... LOVE your card.
