copper medallion

Good Morning!

All is can say is 'WOW!' I got my complimentary copy of the new catalog yesterday!! It is beautiful and so nicely laid out! SU really outdid themselves this year and I'm excited to get you your new ones asap!!!! My boxes are on their way just not sure when as we can't track them! Arhhhh.

Here's a card sample I made one of the first nights I had rec'd my new preview stamp sets. I was saving it to demo at my team meeting on July 7th but then the retired accessory list came out so there went my plans of using the copper embossing powder and the wide organdy ribbon!

The technique I used was called Faux Metal and this is what I did:

Supplies to do Faux Metal:
Embossing Powder of your choice
Solid image stamp set
Heating gun
Piece of cardstock

On piece of paper bigger than the image I covered area with versamark then poured Copper EP and heated till just changed, then patted my versamark pad over that again (won't stick to EP if that's what you're wondering), repeated the first step total of 4 times. By the end I had quite a thick 'puddle' of copper EP. Once you heat set that last time as soon as the powder melts take your stamp and quickly place in 'the puddle'. Hold it down for 10 seconds or so and then remove. Voila! For my sample I cut around the Baroque Motif's flower and then used my 1/4 inch circle punch to punch circles around to make the medallion.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask away.

Today is our youngest daughter's birthday party with her friends. Tomorrow is her actual birthday where she's turning '4!'!!!!! I can't believe how quickly the time flies!

Its also the last day of school today so our older 2 girls are sooo excited.

I hope you all have a wonderful day,

Happy Stampin'

Very pretty card! I just bought the copper EP in my last order before the list came out! Oh well - a lot of what I do is for us to give away, so I'm not too worried about what's current and what's not! It gets used :)
