VersaMark Embossed Background

Stampin up big shot butterfly punch mojo monday rubber stamps
A snazzy embossed background can define a pretty card.  I added VersaMark Ink to the inside of my Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The result?  An artful richness that makes the embossing come alive.  Today’s 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial shows you the super simple procedure!


  • Stampin up big shot rubber stamps scallop punch mojo monday friendly phrasesThe layered butterfly combines a crop from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die (Lucky Limeade) and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  Did you notice that these little beauties nest perfectly?  I used a touch of VersaMark on the edges for definition.
  • To keep the card simple, I used  Stampin’ Up! Printed Designer Brads in two different spots, merely changing the colors.  A huge benefit of using Stampin’ up! products is that it’s so easy to coordinate within color collections.
  • Stampin’ Up! Builder Punches get amazing mileage.  The two stems are from the Bird Builder Punch.
  • Solid Versamark coverage on the finished background looks lovely.  However, I think the effect of an uneven inking is an even more engaging effect.  Take a look at this background before I added the embellishments.
