Fifth of November part deux

Also today I made a Blonde Moments card sample in the shop :) A Christmassy one, which feels odd, seeing as it's Bonfire Night, but haven't found an excuse yet to make Bonfire Night cards!

I have used quite a few items to make it, but they're the sort of items you could experiment with and make lots of other different items out of, as well as a card like this. We have just got Blonde Moments Ultra Thick Embossing powders in, nine types to be precise, plus some extra pearl pigments that are a bit Christmassy. I don't normally do pink Christmas cards (a red and green fan I am), but the shade of Ultra Thick in my stash is Plum, so I decided to be a 'rebel' and try pink.

So take three rectangles of card, one large and two small. With each one, ink the card with Versamark, slap on some Plum Ultra Thick

Embossing Powder, and melt it with a heat tool. While powder's still hot, add another powder layer, heat and melt again, add another layer (triple's the plan), and while this is still hot, press a pre-inked (with Versamark) stamp into the melted layers. Hold the stamp into it for a little while. Release, and you should have a debossed image. If your layers are a bit bubbly and not so smooth, reheat, and add more powder, and melt it. The stamp I've used on all three rectangles is the tree from Papermania Floral & Fauna stamp duo. Now that you have three funky pink rectangles, take a Blonde Moments Spring Grass Lustre Pearl Pigment. It's like powder eye shadow (only, don't put it on your eyelids!). Take a thin brush and brush a little bit of powder onto the stamped images. Then you get a green tree :)

On an A6 card, add a rectangle of patterned paper from the Blonde Moments 6x6 Sugar Dumpling paper pad. Stick your large debossed rectangle onto this, with the smaller rectangles at the side. Take a little rectangle of Sugar Dumpling Paper, stamp onto it 'Season's Greetings' (this stamp is from Papermania Home For Christmas stamp set) using a black ink pad, and then make snips around this rectangle using scissors. So it looks frilly. Stick on, job done, pink Christmas!
