Hello! What a fun week it's been so far with the Stampendous team showing off their makes with Scrapbook Adhesives. As you may already know, but it bears repeating, there are prizes to be won! And you can get all of that info over at the Stampendous Blog. But there's a sneak peek of the prizes below!
For my project today, I have a Steampunk card to share. I love steampunk, and when I found out we were releasing the Hot Air Balloon from Dreamweaver Stencils, I was thrilled. I thought it would be perfect for a steampunk card.
DWLL3003: Hot Air Balloon
EI101: Bloss Gloss Embossing Ink with Dauber
FREG044: Seasonings Embossing Powder
DWLJ911: Gears Stencil
DWDCP: Copper Embossing Paste
EJK07: Bronze Encrusted Jewels Kit
FRG01C: Silver Glass Glitter
FREG026: Aged Black Embossing Enamel
DWDPK: Palette Knife
My Colors Cardstock: Ocean Side
Imagine Crafts: Celestial Copper and Bronze Burst Delicata Ink, Tear It! Tape
Scrapbook Adehsieves: Black Foam Squares
Metallic F/X: Glacier Lake
Beacon Adhesieves: Zip Dry Glue
Prism: Black cardstock
1. Tape the Hot Air Balloon Stencil to a piece of black cardstock. Usig the Boss Gloss Dauber bottle, apply embossing ink all over the stencil. Remove stencil, and sprinkle Seasonings Embossing Powder on top, shake off excess, and heat from underneath. Tear around the embossed image, and apply Celestial Copper ink around the edges. Set aside.
2. Attach the Gears Stencil to another piece of black cardstock with tape. Using a palette knife, apply Copper Embossing Paste all over the stencil. Remove (and wash) stencil. Sprinkle Bronze Glass Glitter and Vintage Mahogany Glitter from the Bronze Encrusted Jewels kit in the wet paste. Sprinkle Silver Glass Glitter and Glacier Lake Metallic F/X to the wet paste as well, and heat with embossing gun. Set aside.
3. Create the card base using Ocean Side colored cardstock to 10" x 6 1/2" and fold. Apply Tear It! Tape down the right side and bottom about 1/4" away from the edge. Sprinkle Aged Black Embossing Enamel to the tape, shake off excess and heat. Ink the edges of the card base with Bronze Burst Delicata ink.
4. Glue the Gears background to the card base using Zip Dry Glue. Using black foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives, attach the balloon on a slight angle on to the card.
Here you can see some of the dimension of not only the paste and glass glitters, but also the foam squares, embossing powders and layers.
I loved making this card. All of the fabulous metallics and textures make me happy. A huge thank you to Scrapbook Adhesives for supplying the team with some of their amazing products.
