Creative Chemistry 102- Day Five

Last Day of Creative Chemistry 102 the effects of embossing!
 
OK, defiantly learned some new fun techniques here.  Although, it would have helped to have the right product on a couple of the techniques.  So I will be having a do over.  But hey, such is life.  The chalkboard technique is one I was really excited to try.  Happily, the Antiquities Frosted embossing powder is arriving tomorrow so I will redo my tag.  I do have a "what not to do" tag.
 
First up is the distress embossing powder.  I have never used this and it is really cool.  Just like sand paper.  The snowman you can't tell from the photo, but it's embossed with sticky powder and distress rocky candy glitter.  LOVE!   Oh and lastly... it would help if I could find gold leafing with sticky embossing powder.  When I find some I'll redo it.
 
The Shabby Chic technique is so great!  I loved rubbing the paint off.  The window is done with the tarnished silver technique.  I really love all the embossed layers.  What a cool way to create metal!  And now for the chalkboard technique...FAIL!  You can see here what not to do.  Clear embossing powder does not work...period!
Now that I'm a graduate I can play!

  1. Nicole, I found the gold leafing at Michael's. They had it in both the sheets and the loose flakes like he shows, but the packet of the flakes are double the price of the sheets, so I opted for the sheets of leafing and worked with that instead. In our store, I found it on the side wall over by the jewellry and beads with other leafing products, like the foil pens etc. :)

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
