Karen H. here today and I am sharing a “gorgeous” card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps, an embossing folder and a new product I recently discovered called Bisters. Bisters are a water soluble powder that you sprinkle on your paper, spritz with water and amazing colors appear. If you visit my blog here and scroll down, you will see more cards I have posted with this fun and inexpensive product. I have to admit- this card is one of my favorites so far. My favorite color currently is teal so I started with a beautiful teal cardstock, then embossed a border with a classic embossing folder from Darice. I heat embossed this gorgeous silhouette CBP stamp on watercolor paper with black embossing powder. Then I sprinkled various colors of the Bister powders and spritzed with water. After it dried, I cut out the stamped image along the border and attached to the card. The Hello Gorgeous stamp seemed perfect – I just love the font. As is often the case, I cut it apart since the Hello was above the Gorgeous, and now I can choose to use it either way. This is one of the great advantages of cushion mounted stamps vs. wood mounted.
Thanks for stopping by the Crackerbox Palace blog. The stamps I have used today and many other awesome stamps are available on our website here.
