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

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t

Weeds N Wishes GIU Day 1

Hello Friends Welcome to my first day of my first ever GIU week yay!! I am super excited to be showing you my creations this week with the wonderful Unity stamps :)  I only found out last week I would be the GIU girl this week. I had to switch out my Dec date as I will be in Scotland another yay :) I have two cards for you today with this new stamp set from Unity. I absolutely LOVE dandelions. So when I saw this set I just had to have it. It is called Wish With Your Heart and it is on sale right now for $12 a bargain. I think today is the last day of the sale so if you like it go and grab it quick!! So for my first card I wanted to do another black and white card. I also wanted to use my black distress ink which I bought months ago and have never used. It is called Black Soot and funnily enough it gets everywhere just like the real black soot. I love getting messy with my distress inks and kind of expect a bit of a mess. But the black mixed with water gets EVE
