Hello there peeps! Happy Friday to you all! I am so happy it is almost weekend, what a busy week it has been! I seriously need some chill time
I have a cool thing to show you today… have you ever used silver metalic Zing! embossing powder from American Crafts?
I thought it be a great way to add a bit of flare to my page which I created using the stunning August Santa Fe kit.
Let me show you how.
1) Ink your stamp up & position on your heavy cardstock. The CD online store carries neutral colored cardstock for times such as this See here. I like to stamp onto a thick foam square for best ink coverage. Psst: notice my 3×6″ acrylic stamping block? I love that jolly thing. It makes positioning so much easier. There are a few left in the store if you want to grab one. See here.
2.) Sprinkle stamped image liberally with Zing! embossing powder. So not be concerned that the powder looks dark. It lightens up with heating.
3.) Now grab yourself a few of the cute little wooden transport shapes from the kit & press well into the stamp pad, until well covered.
4.) Carefully heat the embossing powder. I strongly suggest you used tweezers to hold the little shape, lest you lose skin.
This is the finished result:
Silver metallic stamped circle accent.
Silver metallic wood veneer accents.

I must be psychic because can see this silver embossing powder being used for all sorts thingies in my near future.
Glad you stopped by & have a great weekend!
