Here's today's card -

I started by stamping the verse from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 3 Cheers for Art Stamp Set and the sentiment from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Parisian Art Stamp Set using Garden Patina Archival onto Coconut White Card cut from Sue Wilson's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B. I edged with Faded Jean Distress Oxide using a Smoothie. I matted onto Black Card and then another piece of Coconut White.

I set the Efcolor Stove up and added some CS Clear, Midnight Blue, Ocean Black and Tropic Pearl Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals to a Melt-It Case. I popped it onto the stove platform, added the lid and left to melt. I inked up the sentiment from the same set using Clear Perfect Medium. Once the crystals were molten I poured some onto my Craft Sheet and added the verse stamp to it.  I left it to set for a couple of minutes and then peeled away the stamp. I brushed CS Phill Martin Old Gold Mica Powder over it. I added my UTEE verse over the top of my stamped verse with a little Hi-Tack Tape and a little CS Glue.

I poured some more of my molten powder into a mould that I had made from a Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 embellishment and some Mould n Pour. After a couple of minutes, I removed it from the mould and added it to my card with a little Hi-Tack Tape and a little CS Glue.

 I completed my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Hello Julia

    I love this card. I bought the powders and burner but am struggling to get the balance right of the amount needed to ensure there is sufficient for the stamp. You seem to get the edge the same shape as the stamp is there a technique to this or just luck or skill?

    Have a great day
