Distressed Cracked Glass

I must say this Pines & Poinsettias stamp set is wonderful! It's so very versatile - which you know I LOVE! I used it again to make this beautiful card for my mother-in-law on her birthday. It's pretty clean & simple but I love the pop of the cracked glass flowers.

Super simple - Stamp your image, cover the entire piece of cardstock with versamark & clear embossing powder, heat it up and repeat the embossing 2 or 3 more times. You want to achieve a thick coat of embossing. Pop it in the freezer for a min or two then bend it to begin the cracking. Sponge over the piece with some Soft Suede to add a little distressing to the cracks.

I think I'll enter this in the Catered Crop Follow the Recipe Challenge. I used the following:

Inks: Distress Ink, markers
Papers: kraft
Tools: die cuts
Embellishments: glitter

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz

Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Whisper White

Paper: Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Scallop Trim Punch, Ovals Die, Dazzling Details

Have a fab day!
