Sometimes you make decisions that set your creativity free! This week, I made some of my own & for the first time in quite sometime, I feel truly inspired again! My Mojo is BACK! WOOHOO! :)
Sssoooo, now we're off to our challenge this week at The Technique Twist! We're Double Embossing with fun powders & lots of shimmer!
You'll notice I used the same stamp & a similar layout on both cards below but I made them slightly different. I've had this great stamp for a few years (I think it was one I found in the dollar bin at Michaels but I could be wrong.) and got it out to ink it up today! For the card below, I used three types of embossing powder. I sprinkled Red Dragon & Stardust embossing powder & heated it up. Then I went over the whole panel with clear embossing powder for extra shine.
For the square card, I used clear embossing powder & Stardust over Bermuda Bay ink on Foil Paper. I couldn't quite capture the loveliness of the second image but it's gorgeous IRL.
So now it's your turn! Come join us at The Technique Twist Challenge & show us whatcha got!
Cardstock: Basic Black & Real Red, Bermuda Bay
DSP: Winter Frost (card #2)
Stamp: $1 butterfly swirl, Sassy Salutations, Petite Pairs
I'm back from vacation with some fun techniques from both the Technique Twist Challenge & the Technique Time Tuesday Challenge! Our latest Twisted Challenge is the Bokah Technique. Check out all the details here. The Technique Time Tuesday Challenge is all about the Faux Cloisonné technique. Check out both & come join us!
For the Bokah Technique, I decided to use the new Foil Sheets from Stampin' Up! as my base. I stamped small stars in Illuminate, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, & Pacific Point and then blasted the sheet with a heat gun to dry the ink. You could also use some embossing powder to heat set these stars.
For the Faux Cloisonne technique, I decided to use DSP instead of a magazine page. I used the Winter Frost DSP and Pewter Embossing Powder to create the stars.
Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Ink: Illuminate, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, & Pacific Point
