Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop

This is the last stop on the Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop!  Thanks for joining us.  This month's blog hop challenge was to showcase a stamping technique.  My technique is an older technique, I wanted to share it because I had forgotten all about it, but I like the look.  I'm hoping some of you like it too!  It can be recreated with any color embossing powders and paper, I used black and white in my example. 

I, once again,  used Unity stamps for this technique.  Sherri is sponsoring this month at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.  You can be entered to win a Unity stamp set by commenting on the blog hop post for today on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.


I gathered my supplies, which include, 2 different colors of cardstock and matching embossing powder, embossing ink, stamps, and a heat gun.

First, I stamped and heat embossed the same images on BOTH sheets of paper.  I did white embossing on the black paper, and black embossing on the white paper.

Next I choose just one color of each image and cut out it out. For my example I cut the white paper with the black embossed heart image and the black paper with the with embossed stamped text. 
 
Then I cut the identical image (in the opposite color) exactly in half and adhered that half to the top of my first image (making sure the images line up create a whole image.)  Next I flipped the embellishment over and trimmed off the excess paper.
 
I matted the completed "split" stamped image onto a piece of patterned paper...and there you have it!  An interesting technique to spice up a stamped image on a layout or a card.
