2S4Y - Joy


Hello ello! Hope you're having a fabulous day!


I created this card using the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch for this week. I used my Slice machine to cut out the 3 1/2" circle, as well as the 4" scalloped circle (saved me some time since I don't have the circle nestabilities dies and I would've been sitting there punching the edge with my corner rounder... LOL).


I stamped the polka dots with versamark ink, and then sprinkled and heat set the aqua embossing powder. I had a little trouble getting full coverage with the Zing powder (I think the granules are a little chunkier), anyone know any tips or tricks?? I did try refreshing my versamark pad with the refill ink, but it didn't really help. Speaking of tips, I have one... Don't touch areas that have JUST finished heat embossing... LOL, it's a liiiiiiittle warm. *wink* Haha, I'm so clumsy. I also heat embossed the snowflake with brown powder, and then stamped the sentiment in white ink.


Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon! Have a great one! :)

  4. This card is so fun! I love all of the embossing. I am also glad I am not the only one who burns herself and/or her paper when embossing! I thought I might be the only klutz out there! haha! :)

    I have been loving your color combos so much! They are so fresh and fun! Thanks for the inspiration!
