Preferred Partner

Heat embossing is one of my favorite things to do with a rubber stamp. Stephanie at The Stamps of Life has some truly great solid stamps for that. LOVE IT!

For this card, the pumpkin was heat embossed with P K Glitz E P Max. That is embossing powder pumped full of awesome glitter! When the image is heated, the powder seals in the glitter so it totally stays put while giving this great sparkle. Really neat stuff!

The words are heat embossed also but with regular powder. The strip of green sparkle is Sticky Tape with glitter on it. Oh, and isn’t that punched bat border just too cute?? Can’t beat off-season sales! I think I got that punch in March or something on a clearance rack for like $3! Yipppeeee!!!

I’ve been a member of The Stamps of Life monthly stamp club since the beginning! I just LOVE the clear stamp sets that Stephanie comes up with every month! They are SO versatile, easy to use and plain FUN!

The Stamps of Life is a Preferred Partner at P K Glitz through the end of the year, so you’ll see more projects with her stamps combined with P K Glitz products. Use them for inspiration for your own projects!

Today was one of those days that Prickley Pear was perfect for my projects!

This card was fun to create since I combined heat embossing with dry embossing. The orange panel is vellum dry embossed then colored with Copics on the back for a stained glass effect. The stamped image is by Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps and heat embossed using 2 different colors of embossing powder. The image is stamped once then sprinkled with one color in one area first, then the 2nd color is added after shaking off any excess of the first powder. A fun effect especially when an image is perfect for it like this one.

Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps has a great collection of Floral images showing beautiful brush strokes of delicate detail.

For the card shown below, I’ve used selective coloring to match the colors in the paper. The bright pink and chocolate tones really made the detail pop in this image. Using a die cut floral border coated with P K Glitz glitter really adds a nice touch.

I’ve long been a fan of Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. The style is flowing and somewhat whimsical with a vintage flair. Such detail and beauty in each image!

This image, Bird with Floral Trail, is wonderful for card making. It’s a great size for the front of a card. I’ve heat embossed it here with P K Glitz embossing powder for a little extra dimension.

For Fun challenge

I was lucky enough to receive the Vintage Summer May 2010 kit from Dixie Pieces (see the side bar for a clickable link to their store) to create with in September/October. The kit has lots of goodies – cardstock, paper, ribbon, acrylic stamps and lots of embellishments! There is some really fun We R Memory Keepers items and Pink Paislee papers in the kit that offer a nice variety for fun and spunky to more serious for those non-cutesy projects.

I’ll share a couple cards with you today and tomorrow we’ll look at a couple scrapbook pages.
