Part Stamping

Hi again folks, another blog post!!  Whoop Whoop.

Now, on Wednesday's Let Leonie Loose this week, we have got a really good price on some of my stamps - so I thought I'd have a little play and share what I've been doing with you.  You will be able to see me demo these live.

First, I cut a couple of hearts using my deep heart dies, I love these dies as they allow me to cut out of thicker materials, like mount board - which means we can get our triple thick embossing powders out!!

I coated the first heart with versamark and covered it with triple thick embossing powder.  I melted this with my heat gun, and applied another layer of powder whilst the first layer was still molten and hot.  Repeat this until you have 3 layers of powder, which will give you a lovely gloss finish.

I then used some of my coloured ultra thick embossing powders.  Silver from Crafty Notions, and a lovely blue from Cosmic Shimmer

Emboss a layer of silver first, look how smooth the finish is, it's stunning

While the silver is warm, sprinkle on some of the blue embossing powder, and emboss.  I sprinkled on some more silver, until I was happy about the colour

Now, whilst the embossing powder is still warm, stamp into it.  I used my Festive Texture background stamp, which I designed so you could use it as a background stamp....but you don't have to use the full stamp - this expands the possibilities.

And, because it's an unmounted stamp, it's really easy to bend, so this allows me to be really specific which bit of the stamp I use - and I love the look of just a little texture, I think it looks really cool

Have a play, it's easy and effective

I hope you can join me on Wednesday, Hochanda. 2-4.  Seeya then :) xxx

Morning Leonie, Mmmmmmmmmm, this looks gorgeous, the ultra thick embossing looks beautiful especially with the stamping in it !!
The ultra thick embossing has reminded me of my 'melting pot' which I haven't used in quite a long while, I must get it out !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx
