June CAS Mix Up Reminder

Welcome back to the June CAS Mix Up challenge using embossing powders!  There’s more inspiration to be found with our creative Design Team PLUS VIDEOS to help you through this technique.

For this card I die cut a large feather in thick card stock and place this onto a non-stick craft sheet and my electric fondu plate.  I added various green embossing powders and once cooled off, using Versamark, I stamped the feather with an old Lawn Fawn Interlocking Backdrop chevron stamp.  This time I added gold embossing powder and heat embossed with my heat gun.  Using my crimpler, I diagonally dry embossed one corner of my card panel and cut it slightly smaller than my card base.  Gold thread was wrapped around the end of the feather and was adhered to the panel.  “Il était une fois” (Once upon a time) was stamped at the opposite corner and heat embossed using one of the greens in the feather.

WARNING: this technique can get very addictive 😉  Hoping to see you in our gallery, the challenge finishes on the 24th.  Thanks so much for stopping by, HUGz

  2. I love the way you got the stamped image into the melted embossing powder – it adds so much interest and texture. Great finishing touch to crimp one corner of the background – I never think to get my old crimper out!
