How to make a simple embossed card with Ujjwal Gupta! :)




Today's guest is Ujjwal Gupta of Handmade with love. I "met" Ujjwal sometime last year when she started participating in my guest blogger challenges. Her style epitomizes simple elegance. I love that she exercises restraint rather than pile on the embellishments. Her cards have a clear, often graphic focal point that draws your attention and makes you think "Hey, why didn't I think of doing that?" Today she shares a tutorial on embossing with scor-tape and is hosting a challenge with an awesome prize for the winner! :)

But first, let's take a look at her gallery of work!




Hello, I’m Ujjwal living in Pune, India and I am super excited to be a guest blogger on Yvonne's blog today. I am almost like the rest of the crafters around, seriously addicted to Crafts, admiring, hoarding and most defiantly buying ( things that I don't need but MIGHT need :D ). I got married to a wonderful guy10 months back and life has been a beautiful journey ever since.My DH is most supportive, encouraging and ever so patient with my crafting needs(I am not sure if its the same when I go on my crafting shopping spree!)
I have been into card making and crafting since I was a small kid but it got serious when I discovered blogging one year back and started my own blog in feburary 2010 and there has been no looking back since then. I have met some very talented people..made wonderful friends and learned a lot.
I am a full-time working software professional and I am not really sure if I really love my job ( except for the part that it pays and I can buy all the crafting goodies :D) because my heart is always in crafts.
I am glad to have been given the opportunity to be featured here today. Looking forward to all the fun and crafting!

Although I love experimenting with different techniques and styles of crafting, over the years I have found myself to be most comfortable being simple. No heavy layering, No complicated sketches, simple color schemes & no heavy embelishments. So my challenge for you all is to make simple cards. But wait thats not all - to add some more fun I want you to add some sort of embossing to your projects  (which is my new found love :D). 




Here is the card I created and a short tutorial I prepared.



Step 1: Once you have decided on the layout and design of your project, gather you supplies.

For this card: scor tapes (1/4” and 1” wide), dimensional adhesive, cardstock, ranger embossing   tinsel in red, Colorbox white ink, skipping stone stamp set (Grunge), felt flower embellishment, heat tool


Step 2: Apply the scor tape on the cardstock as per your choice of design.
             Remove the tape backing and sprinkle embossing powder/tinsel.


Step 3: Once you have applied the embossing powder/tinsel as per your requirement, heat the embossing powder using a heat tool.


Step 4: After the embossing is completely heat set, work on the stamping part of your design.

I used Skipping Stones Stamp set and white pigment ink to stamp my images.



Step 5: Put you card together.
             I used some 3D Foam adhesive to add some dimension to the top layer.

Congrats to Ujjwal on the Guest spot :>) Simple style, yet the glittery embossing adds just enough pizzaz - I just have the plain ole stuff (and a ton of it somewhere). Watch out craft room, I get out the messy stuff and I create a mess.
