It's my birthday today, and our son and his partner Sasha, have
invited us over for dinner this evening. I can't remember the last
time we celebrated my birthday with others on the actual
day, so I'm super excited!
Today's video shows how to heat emboss die-cuts using three
layers of Clear Embossing Powder to get a really super shine. The
tricky part is not to touch the front with your fingers, and in the
video I show you how I do it.
It's not a brilliant idea working on a technique like this
when the weather is so hot, because I have a ceiling fan above
my head, whirring away keeping me very comfortable! Needless to
say it caused a thin film of embossing powder to cover everything,
but I survived and have everything all cleaned up again! LOL!
The video also shows one idea how you can use the non-picture
designs in the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum Pack. There are
three designs which are ideal as backgrounds for today's Thank You
card, and they are: Coastal Cabana - diamond shapes, Gorgeous
Grape - sea waves, and the brickwork.
I don't have any of the brickword design left as I've already used
it on other projects as a background. The design I used for the Merry
Merlot card is just too busy. I made the flowers using the Pop of
Petals Stamp Set and the Four Petal Flower punch. The stamp set
and punch are available as a bundle which saves 10%.
The flowers in this set will only fit in the punch one way, so I have
marked on the back of them which way is top. I used some scrap
paper to check each flower individually, but now it's done,
I won't have to think about it again. ☺
I now have two videos prepared for while I'm away and I have four
more in the pipeline because I will still need three before I go. If
I keep going at this rate, I might even have one ready for when I
arrive home, too! I love it when a plan comes together.
I hope you have a very blessed Sunday,
and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
