Playing with embossing powder today

and made a huge mess of it too. i have a melting pot...for melting large amounts of it. And really don't know why. Cuz I dont' use it. I'll have to take soem pix...I used the negative image from some chipboard & tried to pour it in to a mold. but didn't work. I did some fun stuff..but did not use it for anything yet. I did however spend way too much time screwing around with this. I put clear & pink powder on teh flower then stamped into it while still wet w/ the stamp w/ staz on...pretty cool. :) and then the green card, i heat embossed a clear button to turn it pink! AND THE little tag thingy too.

a fun boy page w/ grunge look & feel

I have had this hambly over lay for months..maybe a year. I finally used it. And used a new ctmh (valentineish) paper pack, some heat embossing (which is a love hate relationship), lots of chipboard...etc. And i HATE how the color looks from the scan. IN real life...the pink stuff is really red. And the YOU is really red/blackish. I think i need to add a R for 'your' and then I noticed I stamped favorites twice...ooops!.

I of course used some templates & quick pages from the www

A new card

I made this yesterday, but had to wait for the liquid glass to dry. I wish it showed up better on the scan....cuz the snowflake petals are really shiny W/prisma glitter & then shiny & hard with liquid glass. and i used various rub on snowflakes in back ground.
