Be sure to watch my video to learn more about this technique. It is simple – all you need is shiny cardstock and clear embossing! I wish my photos did a better job capturing the shine and texture.

My video features a very special stamp set, created by Honey Bee Stamps with the Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in mind. 50% of all sales from this stamp set will go to these wonderful charities specifically for Hurricane Dorian relief efforts. Half of the donation will go to Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. The other half will go to the Global Empowerment Mission. THANK YOU, HONEY BEE!

  1. Stunning technique Jennifer with awesome results. I will give this definitely a try.
    Thank you so much for the time and effort to make the great video tutorial and have a great weekend.

  2. Jennifer, this faux etching is simply lovely. I always enjoy learning a new technique. The stamp set you featured is a great way to aid the hurricane victims, too. tfs

  3. I love the way your brain sees things I cannot. You must have spent a lot of time experimenting over the years and the outcomes are simply mind-blowing. Thank you for this beauty, Jennifer. I am grateful to have been able to support a few stamp companies in their hurricane Dorian response. Thank you for sharing kindness!

  4. What gorgeous cards with this amazing stamp set! Mine arrived a few days ago, so I was planning to spend this weekend getting crafty with it. Your post and video arrived at the perfect time! 🙂
    Have a great weekend!

  5. This technique is awesome. The cards are lovely. I do have a question for you. I can’t pin you card examples to my pinterest board anymore. Am I doing something wrong? I was so nice to save examples with the video for future reference. I love all your beautiful cards and the techniques that you share. I am a card maker from Landmark, Manitoba, Canada.

  6. Thank you so much for showing this way of using the card stock with the stamps. This technique is a worth doing project & so many stamps to try this with. I’ll start with a small one and see how that goes before I go big, which is what I always do……

  7. Cards are absolutely gorgeous!! Technique is easy but what a WOW effect! Another to go on my “to try” list!! Love it, Jennifer!!

  8. Hi, these cards are beautiful and I was beyond anxious to try them. I have the items listed, even bought the same heat tool and I keep getting a halo like image around the anchor. Is there a way to alleviate that.? I’ve tried numerous times and it still happens. Thank you! Thank you also for the amazing videos and ideas!
