It's June 1 and a new challenge has been posted over at CAS Mix Up! Loll is our hostess this month and she wants us to do Layered Embossing Powders!
Here is my card - where I was inspired by this technique video - Mixed Embossing Powders by Jennifer McGuire.
I was excited to get out this sweet popsicle die from Reverse Confetti to use on my card today.
I bought it several years ago and it has not been used until now!
First, I die cut 3 popsicles and 3 sticks out of watercolor paper and glued them together to give a sturdy base for my embossing.
Then I embossed the top section in Pink Peony 3 times - letting it cool a few seconds in between embossings.
Then I masked off the middle section before inking with Versamark for the 2nd color Buttercup.
I didn't worry if there was a little overlap or flecks here and there.
My Versamark pad is old and it has gotten several different flecks of powders stuck on it!!
I repeated masking the yellow to emboss the bottom section in Sky Blue.
I used Tree Branch EP for the popsicle stick - again embossing 3 layers so it's really thick and creamy!
I used Noted: Scalloped A2 die from PTI for the die cut framings.
I can just hear the Ice Cream Man's truck music when I look at this - can't you??!
Popsicles were 5 cents when I was little!
And we still couldn't get one every day - it was a special treat in the summer!
So please show us how you will use layered embossing powders on your CAS mix up card - remember to keep it CAS, use embossing powders, stamps and another media for your design!
We are welcoming Guest Designer: Jane (Purplejet Loves Crafts) this month so please give her a warm welcome!
You'll find links to YouTube videos of various techniques for layering embossing powder as well as lots of inspiration from the Design Team over at CAS Mix Up! You have until June 24th to link up your creation!
