I’m so excited! Convention is almost here! I’ll be flying out on Wednesday and meeting up with my upline, downline and some of the HSS design team. We’re going to have a blast!! I’m hoping there’s WIFI so I can update you on all the great projects and activities. This is my first convention and I’m so excited to finally be going. I look forward to meeting you, my Stampin’ Friends. So if you see me please say hi.
Now back to the project I want to share with you. This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a technique challenge. I had never done the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique before and it was so fun and easy! Here’s a link to a tutorial on SCS. Click to enlarge the photo so you can see how the flower image shimmers.
I used the flower image from Bordering on Romance stamp set. I stamped it with black StayzOn on Very Vanilla card stock then used my blender pens and Primrose Petals and Gumball Green ink pads to color the image. I then embossed it with the oval from the Set Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die. I tore around the edges for a distressed look. I then heat embossed the whole image layer with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The layers are cut from the Label Framelits. I used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder for the background. The butterflies are die cut using the Beautiful Wings Stampin’ Up! Embosslits Die. I used the Loving Thoughts stamp set for my sentiment. I embellished with 5/8 Inch Crochet Trim Victoria ribbon and Antique brad. I also used Basic Pearls.
Join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and see more projects from our very talented design team.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
