Hiya and welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty's Blog
For this week's Project I could not resisit using my New Stamp 'Believe' from the Yuletide Collection, it's such a big big word stamp and I love it
I really fancied a change this week so I grabbed my box of embossing powders and chose a silver and a black to use - I then raided my offcuts box again for some large pieces of Black, Silver, White Pearl and Silver Mirror Cardstock - I also grabbed a 7x7 Cardblank such a good size to use its become a fave of mine
To start I trimmed a piece of Silver Mirror card to a few mm smaller than the 7x7 cardblank, then a piece of White Pearl card a few mm smaller than the Silver Mirror card. I fixed them centred on the card front. I then chose a piece of Black Textured card and a piece of Music Score backing paper, these were both a little small for the card front but I got around that by cutting them to meet in the centre of the card front leaving a 6mm border on the White Pearl but before fixing these layers down I inked the edges of the music score using Black Soot Distress Ink, I randomly stamped the smaller Snowflake from the 'Yuletide - Snowflakes' stamp set using clear embossing ink which I then covered with Silver Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess and heated using my trusty old Heat Gun. I fixed both these layers onto the cardfront being careful to make sure they were straight, I used a wet adhesive so I had wiggle time.
I stamped the 'Yuletide - Believe' stamp onto a piece of plain black cardstock (which i had already trimmed to the size I wanted which I had measured and marked by eye and trimmed using a guilotine) again using clear embossing ink, tipped the silver embossing poweder over, tapped off the excess and heated using my Heat Gun, I then ran the clear embossing ink pad around the edge of the black card which I then dipped into the silver embossing powder, when i heated this it created a pretty frame. A pieve of White Pearl cardstock trimmed to size and used as a matt to the Believe topper I've created added some depth I inked that pearl white piece using the Black Soot Distress Ink and fixed to the card using foam tape.
I wanted to add some extra detail so I made the cute Snowflake embellishments by stamping the Large Snowflake from the 'Youtide - Snowflakes' set using clear embossing ink, tipping over some black embossing powder and heating, once cooled I fussy cut them, curved them using a bone folder and attached at the corners of the Believe topper using my Hot Glue Gun.
I really like how this card turned out, it was nice to get my older craft supplies out for a change and reminded me that I dont always need to have the next new thing I can use my old stuff and make pretty things
