Embossing Paste Technique # 1 ~ Glitter video tutorial

When the 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalog was launched in June there was a new product tucked away on Page 201 ~ Embossing Paste!  It was on my first order and I was so excited when it arrived, however I was also excited about the other goodies that arrived in the same box!  I set aside the pot of paste and to be honest it went from my mind – especially as Christmas themes started.

I was tidying my workbench (it happens….. rarely but it does happen!) and there was the pot of Embossing Paste waiting patiently for my attention.  What fun I have had with this product, as I explored what could be done with it I thought a few video’s would be fun to share.

Today’s technique includes lashings of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter!

September’s Stamp Camp Trio

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
September’s Stamp Camp had three new designs.  The first in traditional colours with a contemporary design (thank you Connie Stewart for the inspiration!)  The second card featured a glitter encrusted tree in delicious Midnight Muse and Soft Sky card and finally the mellow greens of Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz with a silver embossed ornament just popping off the card.

October’s Camp brings three more designs, two are complete – the third is still on the drawing board.  October’s camp is on the 18th and 19th ~ you choose the  date that works for you – call me for more details and to reserve your place.

Card using Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet

This is one of the cards from September’s Holiday Card Stamp Camp. It features the stamp set ‘lovely as a tree’, card stock is midnight muse and soft sky. The tree image was covered with the multipurpose adhesive sheet then dazzling diamonds glitter poured over the sticky surface. It gives a nice even coating of ‘bling’ and once stuck down ~ is going no where!
