Today's card lets me ask about embossing techniques.
As you can see in the card below, I apparently "wiggled" the stamp and got a line on the bottom of the image. I use a dry paint brush to brush away any excess or mistakes prior to heating, but decided to leave this as a focal point. Don't know that I would do it again, but am learning that my mistakes are teaching me. The sentiment is a little sloppy on the left side by the "M" in Merry, guess I just have to practice.
I am curious to suggestions about how to eliminate the "speckling" from powder. I have heard mention of a anti-static pouch of sorts, but haven't checked out the prices. Is there a diy application for this that anyone can tell me about without my having to purchase more items right now?
This is the entire card front - the card itself it actually on white card stock not pink as it appears in the photo (guess I need more lighting in my craft room). The second layer is done with the deep green from The Paper Studio (Holiday pack) www.craftsetc.com that I purchased at a Hobby Lobby www,hobbylobby.com
I love the color combinations of this card.
The "label" is actually a gift tag cutout from Trim The Tree Winter Collection by Cricut www.provocraft.com
The sentiment is from Stampabilities www.craftsetc.com
As promised, I remembered to change the date on my camera!!!
I'm searching the internet today for articles on making your own glitter paper.
I am trying to utilize the supplies and crafting items that I currently have and
expanding their capabilities,
1. The economy and my own financial status
2. Use up existing "inventory"
3. I really do live out in the country and the nearest craft store
(other than a WalMart with a VERY limited inventory)
is about 50 miles away from me
As usual, the recipe for this card is available!
Have a blessed Sunday, everyone!
