‘We Are’ Feeling Inspired!
It’s been raining all day here today. Perfect conditions to hunker down and get creative. Yesterday my creative partner in crime Kellie from Kellie Stamps released a stamp set called TODAY which features my brush script design. I have been overwhelmed with the response to this stamp set. Thank you! Yesterday I took part in a blog hop celebrating National Scrapbook Day with Kellie Stamps. You can see the post and hop here. Myself, Kellie and the talented creatives that make up her creative team used two of the new release stamp sets from Kellie’s stamp store – TODAY and OUTLINE IT.
My first source of inspiration from the blog hop was by Debra of Our Life in Color. Debra combined the TODAY stamp set with gold embossing powder to create this beautiful 3×4 card which she later used in her Project Life album. I was instantly itching to give this technique a go. Debra has provided a fab step-by-step on who to create this effect which I followed.
I wanted to experiment with gold and clear embossing powder. I used the gorgeous little 3×3 and 3×4 cards from the A Beautiful Mess Messy Box, VersaMark stamp pad, the TODAY stamp set from Kellie Stamps, gold and clear embossing powders from Hero Arts and Ranger and my trusty heat gun by Stampin’ Up.
Here are the results which I have used in week twelve of our Project Life about for 2015.
So what do you think? Yes it takes a little bit of time but the technique itself is really fun, relatively simple and very effective.
