It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a "Product Spotlight" challenge.
What a fun challenge...Metallics! And boy oh boy, Stampin' Up! has a lot to choose from...doilies, embossing powders, foil sheets, thread, enamel shapes, sequins, glimmer paper and more! For me, I landed on Gold Embossing Power.
I haven't heat embossed in a long time and I thought it would be fun. I grabbed the snowflake from the Tin of Tags stamp set (retiring soon!) and got to creating! In no time at all, I had this metallic beauty. Check it out...
Tin of Tags Metallic Snowflake Card
- Stamp snowflake (from Tin of Tags - retiring) several times with Versamark Ink on 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" Basic Black cardstock. Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder (remove excess) and heat until melted.
- Stamp greeting (from Star of Light) with Versamark Ink on 3/4" x 2-3/4" Basic Black cardstock. Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder (remove excess) and heat until melted. Adhere to 1/2" x 2-3/4" strip of Gold Fold Sheet. Punch 1/8" hole and tie off with 8" of Baker's Twine Trio Pack (retiring)
- Adhere greeting to snowflake panel with Stampin' Dimensionals, then to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Basic Black card base.
Another great last-minute card. Sometimes those are the best!
I'm still working on my Christmas card list. I hope to have it done and in the mail by Monday. I may need a few more of these if I find myself running short of cards.
