Guest Designing at Retro Rubber #10

Hi Everyone,

I got invited to join in the fun for the next two weeks at Retro Rubber! This is a fun challenge - you have to use your older stamps! What a great excuse to pull them out again and have them smell some ink! This week's challenge is real easy - its heat embossing!


I pulled out this Hero Arts triangle background stamp, inked it up with Versamark and sprinkled WOW gold embossing powder in the center. For the outer part I used white embossing powder. That WOW embossing powder is amazing. Its very detailed and has a wonderful gold tone. I sloshed watercolor around ti and let it dry. Heat embossed that fun STAMPLorations HAPPY stamp from the  set SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Happy on vellum and attached it. The 50 is by Papertrey and the sequins are MFT.

 I also wrapped some thin gold thread around the vellum. The numbers are mounted with foam  tape, as is the large sequin. I made that card for an "old" friend of mine - its going to Germany!



So perhaps you'll all join me and their fabulous DT at Retro Rubber and have some FUN!
