Embossing Techniques with Stampendous!

This is going to be a great week! The Stampendous Design Team will be sharing all sorts of techniques from Fran Seiford's (owner and creator of Stampendous) brand-spankin' new book Embossing Techniques from A-Z. I have been embossing since I was a teenager, and this book had new info for me in it! I couldn't believe how detailed, easy to understand, and chock FULL of inspiration this book has. It is perfect for the novice or long-time crafter. You must get yourself a copy! 

For my project today, I chose to work with Embossing Technique letter "J." You'll need to check out the book for exactly how it was done, but I will tell you that it's simple and really fun. I love the effect.

I used the Queen Annes Lace stamp for my card. Such a pretty stamp. My watercolors are from Strathmore.

I also used some Tear It! tape from Imagine Crafts along with Stampendous' Multi Crystal Glitter Mix for that super-sparkly line I have at the bottom. Below are the rest of the links that will be sharing projects today, but I recommend you check in with the Stampendous Blog each day, because you won't want to miss these ideas! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Can't wait to see this book! I still love the 'magic' of embossing, after trying it 29 years ago! It is a big part of what hooked me into paper arts that many years ago!
Your card is beautiful! Love the colors!
I LOVE how colorful and gorgeous your card is! Wow!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w
