requested, earlier this morning I uploaded my video explaining how I
line up the two-step stamps in the Iconic Christmas Stamp Set.
Hopefully, I’ve explained everything I can about this superb bundle, but please
ask if you have any questions.
evening, I moved onto to the Darling Christmas Stamp Set.
I used Pool
Party and Silver for one card and Pool Party and Whisper White for the
started the card with a base of Pool Party Cardstock (CS), a layer of
Whisper White CS and a top layer of Pool Party CS.
I dry embossed the
top layer using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
I took a piece of
the Pool Party snow-effect design from the Christmas Around the World
Designer Series Paper (DSP) and wiped over it with my Embossing Buddy.
dipped it into my box of Whisper White Embossing Powder and made sure I
gave it a good covering.
After tapping off the excess powder, I heat
set it using my Heat Tool.
I took a piece of Whisper White CS – any colour would work –
and laid the bell on it so I could draw around the edge.
Then I took my Paper
Snips, and cut inside the edge by about 1/8″ all round.
Before I adhered
this to the back of the bell with Tombow, I lined the two up together
to make sure the backing couldn’t be seen from the front.
Then I added
Dimensionals and adhered the bell to the front of the card.
I was disappointed
with the heat embossing at the bottom of the bell; it looks like I moved
I finished the card by adding an insert of Whisper White CS.
made the second card, and changed the middle layer to Silver Foil,
instead of Whisper White.
Likewise, I used Silver Embossing Podwer
instead of white.
One of them was the ribbon, and the other was the inside layer.
I used a
sheet of Smokey Slate as I thought white would have been too stark, but I
don’t like it!
What I should have done, (and still might do!) was to
add a layer of Silver Foil and then Whisper White!
I think this looks fabulous!
I think I’m going to buy the Black and the Gold, too!
obviously did a much better job stamping the bell on this card, because
the heat embossing really shows the detail on this stamp!
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
