Grateful Heart - Triple Embossing

Hello Friends

I hope you all had a good week :) I am so glad it's almost the weekend yay :) I have been working on this card over the last few days. I have wanted to try this triple embossing technique for such a long time. I was reminded of it in a craft magazine I had bought and I thought ok I am gonna do it this week :)

So this where you basically heat 3 layers of embossing powder and stamp your stamp right in to the image. I will give you a step by step I took these pictures at night so they are a little dark but you will get the idea.

You want to Versamark a section of card. I did mine on paper but I would advise card to take the weight of the embossing powder as it does get quite heavy. Sprinkle your embossing powder and heat, allow it to cool  and repeat this another 2 times.

When you are finished heating the 3rd layer immediately take your stamp and press it into the melted powder. Leave the stamp in for a few minutes until it has cooled. Otherwise it will take off the not yet set embossing powder and it will be left behind on your stamp. You may need to play around with this. I stamped way too hard the first time this is my first impression.

 So I just reheated the embossing powder and stamped again much lighter. I did this several times cause I am perfectionist lol I absolutely love the effect you get from this. Whatever you do DO NOT TOUCH the melted embossing powder it is like molten lava on your fingers and it HURTS :)

So once this was set I just cut out my butterflies and mounted them on to my metallic purple paper and created the rest of my card by layering. I stamped the sentiment in the same gold embossing powder to match.

Thanks so much for stopping by xox

Friends with Flair @ Unity

Here is my Unity Friends with Flair entry.  I used my Feel the Joy stamp and used the generation stamping technique with memento ink. I then sponged the background in purple and deep pink pigment ink.  I mounted it on to white card and added the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom. It looked too plain so I added teeny weeny little butterflies from the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.  P.S I ran out of daubers and all I could find was a magic eraser it did the trick as a makeshift sponge :)                                        If you want to take part hop along to Unity and enter  here I just had to make another card I just love this stamp I wish I had gotten it sooner it is so versatile. I think it may be my new favourite Unity Stamp :)                                                                           Thanks for visiting :)

Love You - Hot Pink

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  Have a great weekend :)

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project
