Poinsettia Magic!

The Stampendous Design Team is sharing from the July 2015 Stampendous Catalog again this week. Our new weekly theme is "Pretty Poinsettias". There are several gorgeous stamps and Dreamweaver stencils that feature poinsettias, all of them are fabulous and make beautiful holiday cards and projects. I have always loved this beautiful stencil from Dreamweaver, as I'm sure you'll understand when you see what an elegant card you can create with it!

This was done with our Molten Magic Technique.  I pasted the Poinsettia with Pearlescent Embossing Paste, removed the stencil, sprinkled the wet paste with Metallic F/X powders (mica powders), tapped off most of the powders, then heated the image until it was bubbly and almost dry. Once it dries completely, dust it with a Swiffer cloth to remove the residue from the powders.

Here's a mirror project I did a while back with this stencil (and a few others!) and this technique.

If you'd like more detail about the mirror project, click here.

Stop over at the Stampendous Blog today too! Here are the earlier links for this week.



Happy Creating,
