Something New . . .

. . . at least to me! I couldn't WAIT to try this technique after I saw it demo'd at Convention! While I HAVE embossed and glittered chipboard before, this is a little bit different. After inking up the flower with craft ink (in this case, Rose Red), I sprinkled it with Irisdescent Ice embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I covered it in Versamark (and it will get some glitter on your VM pad - but the results are worth it!). Next, I sprinkled it with Glassy Glaze and heat set it again. The end result is BOTH sparkly AND shiny! It's really pretty and fun! I did this card for SCS SC137. Sketch challenges are my favorite!

I also got to use my first Paper Trey stamps (the Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery circles inside the chipboard flower). I got both the circles AND scallops "Borders and Corners" sets. This was also my first foray into the world of acrylic stamps. I think I could get used to these! I DO still love my wooden stamps, though! That'll NEVER change!
