Happy Little Stampers January 2016 Mixed Media Challenge

Hi! I’m very excited to be here with you today. I have a fun new opportunity to share with you, Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge!

Ourย  challenge:

This challenge is sponsored by

Winner receives one stamp set from HLS!
Here’s my card: (I have added this card to my new Mixed Media Gallery page. If you have time please check it out here.)
Supplies for this card:
Stencil (NEW!)
Red & yellow ink (blending tool)
Clear embossing powder (heat tool)
Red card stock (trim & hello (x3) word die cut)
White card stock (& embossing folder)
Foam tape
Tombow liquid glue
Glossy Accents
To make this card, first I sponged red and yellow through my stencil. Recently, I’ve been working on organizing my blog and have added some new pages at the top. I’d like to invite you to visit my Mixed Media and CAS/Nearly CAS galleries. ๐Ÿ™‚
Then I removed the stencil and used my anti-static tool over the entire surface.
I replaced the stencil and sponged on VersaMark.
Then I removed the stencil and added clear embossing powder and heat embossed. This is a new technique for me and I like it. Have you used this technique before? I’d like to play this at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #217: Anything Goes and Simon Says Stamps’ Wednesday Challenge Blogs’ Simon Says: Something New.
I cropped the stenciled panel, added some red card stock and attached the panels to the embossed card base.
ย I die cut 3 ‘hellos’, stacked them and added Glossy Accents to the top ‘hello’.
ย So! Are you excited to join in with our 2nd Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media challenge?! I hope so. Make sure that you check out my teammates’ super creations at the challenge bog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

  1. Heat embossing clear powder gives such a wonderful glaze. The stencilling is really great.
