Time Out for Thursday Dream Schemes

Good Morning Blog Friends,

I know it's only nine days until Christmas and there's more to do than there are hours in the day, but take a break and see what the Dream Team has created for you.  Today's challenge is color – blue/purple – using the glossy blue embossing paste.  The glossy blue paste is rich and regal, like a sapphire.  And there are so many ways to use it.  

Time is short these days, so I've combined this week's challenge with my nephew's birthday card.  I chose the balloon stencil (LL487) and, after taping the stencil to white card stock, applied the glossy blue embossing paste.  I then carefully removed the stencil and cleaned it.  After the paste dried, I  applied ink to the balloons.  When that dried, I used a soft cloth to remove the ink from the embossed image to restore the glossy finish.   I then cut around the balloons and attached them to the front of the card with pop dots to make the balloons stand out from the rest of the card.  I hope he likes it!

There's more to see, so be sure to click on the links in the right-hand sidebar to see the other projects the Dream Team has made. And be sure to come back next week to see what we've been working on.

Happy Holidays,
Liz

  3. Wow. Love all the colors. How did you get the ink to stick to the glossy paste? What kind of ink was it. Whose image is the birthday collage? I hope your nephew is old enough to appreciate his auntie's work.
