Well I was thinking today could be like Technique day. Since I made this card and had the quickie tutorial ready to go.

I got this AMAZING paper from a PSF goody swap from my friend Laura! She is awesome. She sent me assorted papers in my favorite color-purple. This paper is to DIE for! Its got some clear embossed images with sparkle. It totally inspired my card. SO here are more of my favorite things.

Supplies for my card- Lizzie Anne Designs Daisy Dots flower, Martha Stewart purple cardstock, Martha Stewart silk ribbon, Martha Stewart Glitter (dk purple color), Bling Bling cardstock, Prima Daisy, Making Memories Boho Chic brad in Lauren (how suitable), designer cardstock (unknown) I think its DCWV. Versamark, Glue pad, heat and stick powder, heat tool.

So when I went to the expo in RI I learned this cool technique with Bling Bling paper. No big deal, easy to do, lots of WOW!

I was SO EXCITED I asked the guy if I could keep a sample! LOL! He gave me one but I saw the butterfly (you know me and my butterflies) and asked if I could have that one instead! Obviously-he said OK.

Here I am. Sorry for the blur. Also my hair was straightened that day cause we had no oil, and I couldn’t take a shower that morning-GROSS I know! But lets focus on the gorgeous butterfly shall we.


So here is what you need

Heat tool

Heat & stick powder

versamark, or other thick ink (like colored craft ink)

Bling Bling paper in choice of color ( found here aka rub on foil )

And then the usual-choice of image, and paper etc.

On to the Directions

Step 1- Stamp image in versamark

Step 2- Apply heat and stick powder

Step 3- Heat powder (not too much cause then it wont be “sticky”

Step 4- Apply foil (Shiny side up) and rub really hard!

Step 5- When fully rubbed, quickly rip foil off image (like a bandaid)

Step 6- If you missed a few spots-its ok, go over it again with fresh foil. OR you can sprinkle glitter or microbeads. That looked cool when he did it.

Here is my image.

Don’t throw away any of the paper you can keep using and using tll its gone.

So, OBVIOUSLY I followed the above directions using scrap purple cardstock, I then cut out my flower.

I  used my Glue Pad, and stamped the open line image of the flower, and sprinkled the purple glitter over it.

Layered the images with dimensionals, added a prima and brad for the center.

Pretty cool huh? TRUST me the photo does it NO justice!

I hope you check out the Bling Bling paper its really cool. I used the holographic one (below sample) for some Halloween images over at the Lizzie Anne Sketchbook. Seriously go check out their samples. I have a bunch in there, as well as some Christmas stuff! LOL!

Happy Haunting
