HACK OF THE DAY 17th AUGUST, 2019

When heat embossing, there are a few things that can create a problem. Oils in our skin can be transferred to the cardstock, stray embossing powder, static the list can go on.

On way of controlling this is rubbing an Embossing Buddy over the cardstock before stamping.

The Embossing Buddy is and antic-static bag, when rubbed over the cardstock will stop that shouldn't be there affecting your card.

The embossing powder will stick to where it should and nowhere else.

KYLIES DEMONSTRATOR TRAINING BLOG HOP AUGUST, 2019



Thank you for stopping by my Blog today, it's very cold here in Australia at the moment so a great time to stay home and craft.

My project today is the simplest yet, Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Papers are so beautiful they can stand alone and this is how I have used some.

How good does a piece of Pressed Petal Specialty DSP look?



I cut the paper so that I could die cut a square from the centre, which I mounted on Merry Merlot cardstock, the focus would then be on the main flower, then popped it up on dimensionals.

Please take some time to look at the other blogs, we have some very talented people in this group.
