Hi there! Hope you are all doing well? Things here are improving. Getting out and about and although we can go into stores without masks, we're keeping ours on for the time being. It feels so good to have things open up a bit.
I've been getting out to do activities with some of my Master Gardener friends - nice to be interacting with other humans again!
My June header is the first Monarch I've seen this year. It was visiting my Waystation, though I didn't find any eggs.
My card today is for the Christmas Craft Creations Design Team. Our theme this month is Heat Embossing. I hope you will play along with us in the challenge, I chose to emboss with different powders through a homemade stencil.
I had a piece of card that I must have die cut, when I was making my Christmas cards last year, which had obviously been used for stenciling before, so instead of putting colored inks through the "stencil", I used Versamark ink on to white glossy cardstock. (I used my embossing buddy over the cardstock first).
Then I chose 4 blue/silver embossing powders to sprinkle on one at a time, in different areas of the sticky snowflake. I started with Silver Detail.
I found a blue frame that worked perfectly size wise and I used strips of mounting tape to add it around the sparkly snowflake and sentiment. A piece of silver thread was tied to the spine of the card to finish it off. Below are the products that I used in my project:
Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Swirl Stamp Set
Versafine Clair Paradise Ink pad
Versamark Ink pad
Silver Detail, Silver Lightning,
Blue Silver, Electric Blue, and Clear Detail
Strip mounting tape
I hope I have inspired you to come join in the fun of Heat Embossing, over at the Christmas Craft Creations Challenge?
Till next time, stay safe!
