Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!
Regular readers will have noticed that a major change has happened to my blog today. If you're reading this via email, please click the post title and come over to the blog to see it. The amazing makeover is thanks to the even MORE amazing Mynn Kitchen, owner of HOC and On a Stampage. It was the prize after entering her blogiversary giveaway last month. I'm amazed I won and amazed at the new look of the blog. It is SO me and was done with very little input from me. Those of you who know me well, will know that it's not often I'm speechless, but yep. Mynn did it! HUGE THANKS to Mynn for both her amazing work and inspiration!!!
So, with perfect timing after my bloggy makeover, you might recall that last Saturday I showed you this card, my DT contribution for the latest challenge over at House of Cards, where the cue is Metallic. Today I'm honored to be representing Group 2 and bringing you the pictorial for how to create the card...
You'll need Versamark ink, embossing powder (I've used Stampin' Up's Gold), an embossing folder (I've used SU's Boho Chic, a folded card blank, panel and extra for stampin' (I've used SU's Whisper White)
Open the EF and apply Versamark ink to the raised detail
Carefully lay the card panel onto the folder and press to transfer the ink
Lift the piece off and heat emboss with powder of choice
Stamp your chosen sentiment (I've used one of my favorites from SU's Me = Grateful set) in Versamark onto the spare card
Heat emboss the sentiment
Using a metallic marker (I've used one from Paper Mania), add detail to both the faux letterpress panel and the sentiment
Die cut or punch the sentiment (I've used SU's Deco Labels Framelits)
For a finishing touch color some pearls with the marker, leave to dry for a few minutes while you attach panel and sentiment to the card (I've lifted both with dimensionals)
Add colored pearls to card and you're done!
I'll be back on Sunday with my latest DT creation for 613 Avenue Create, so I hope you'll join me then.
