If you are a fan of Craft Stamper magazine, you may have seen a canvas this month using embossing powders and this design! I just loved using the idea for some Christmas cards and these are what I came up with. (Lots of pics, be warned!)
I had an MDF heart which I used as a template to make my paper ones ( thinking of cost/posting). The swirly circles are a Tim Holtz die( the article used melted embossing powerd to make them), and a Woodware, primitive star-shaped punch. I mixed and matched my Frantage embossing powders, and also used a couple of Marianne Stamps to add some texture, or a Stampin Up script stamp. For the image above, the stamp is a basket weave stamp, MM1603 from Matiannes' Eline's Mixed Media range. I used Silver Pearl embossing powder to keep it subtle.
I love the rusted vibe here with Aged Copper Frantage. I started using Treasured Gold Sapphire wax on the stars, and got some on the card surface. However, as with all accidents, I liked the effect and added some to all the cards! I think it looks a little celestial!
Anyway, hope you like, and don't forget to check out the original article in November 2016 Craft Stamper magazine, so inspirational!
Thanks for looking, Juliexxx
