We challenge you to play along with us and make a card/project inspired by this picture:
Then share it with us at Stampin' Royalty, you will find a link at the bottom of todays post to share it.
Here is my card inspired by this picture.
I love these 3-D stars, in this blog post I show you how to make them. An update to that tutorial is that now we have Star Framelits you can use! And BTW, the Star Framelits are on sale this week only! September 22 - 28, 2015)
I wanted to make sure you could see that each of the feathers are covered with glitter. Do you know we have an embossing powder that makes your stamped image STICKY! It's called heat and stick powder!
Here's how to use Heat and Stick Powder.
1. stamp your image with craft ink (or work super fast and use Stampin' Up! Classic ink like I did here)
2. pour Heat and Stick Powder over the image, shake off the excess in to a folded in half piece of paper and pour that excess powder back into the container.
3. Using the Heat Tool, heat the Heat and Stick powder, JUST until it melts, do not over heat it or it will not be sticky.
4. Pour the glitter of your choice over the now sticky image, pour off the excess into another folded in half piece of paper and then pour the excess back into the container.
5. Heat set the now glittered image. The second heating is the secret to getting your glitter to stay stuck to that image.
NOTE ABOUT CLASSIC INK: The Stampin' Up! Classic ink is not intended for embossing, HOWEVER, if you work quickly you can indeed emboss with it, so have your powder open and ready to pour on the second you stamp your image. If you find this does not work for you then that is a clue that your stamp pad needs to be re-inked.
This kit is so stinkin' cool because you can change out the garland and ribbon on this wreath and have a halloween wreath, a fall wreath or a Christmas wreath! That is awesome! Then you can get creative with make your own garlands to put on it for a year round wreath! Just had to share that. I am about to make my wreath from this kit, can't wait!
Here are all the awesome things I used to make this card:
