Be Creative with Three Metallic Pens. Do you remember the Crafting Forever Stamp Set? This was one of my favourites from the last Annual Catalogue, and I am thrilled it carried over. I haven’t used it in an age, so thought I would be creative and get it all inky again.
As a bit of a change, I used Versamark ink and metallic embossing powder. The first card I made used Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder teamed with Petal Pink, Mint Macaron and Soft Seafoam, with a bit of Gray Granite thrown in for good measure. I love how soft and gentle the result is, but wanted to be creative and give it a hit of colour for the second card.
I used Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder for the second card with Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay. The result is certainly has more punch, but which do you prefer? I added Metallic Pearls to each of the cards just to finish them off.
I love that these cards are so easy to put together, but give such stunning results. The colouring is all using Stampin’ Write Markers, which don’t add any colour to the embossing – which Blends would. I really hope you give these a go, the stamp set has so many fantastic images that are perfect for all crafters, men, women, those who sew, those who paint, everyone! And if you sell your cards, it also has the Copyright image you will need to use to comply with the Stampin’ Up Angel Policy. Just perfect all round!!
