Add a Little Dazzle/Altenew Blog Hop

altenew blog hop
It’s time for the  Add a Little Dazzle and Altenew Blog Hop!  We are so excited to be joining forces with this amazing company that has a beautiful line of stamps.  Join us today as both companies share some amazing inspiration using their stamps and Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets.
I added embossing paste to my card base with a stencil.  Didn’t want nice clean lines, so I used my palette knife to make little marks in the paste and spread it around a bit before it dried.  Then I placed the stencil over it again, rubbed Versamark ink here and there all over it and then heat embossed with the same embossing powder you see on the focal image.  Didn’t want complete coverage…just hit and miss.
And, speaking of the focal image, it’s been stamped with Versamark onto vellum and heat embossed.  I used it for the hearts too.  I stamped a small piece of the Scarlet Red craft metal sheet with Stazon and allowed it to dry. Then, I ran it through my Big Shot Pro with an embossing folder to get even more texture…cool look right?
A simple stamped sentiment (love this set from Altenew!) and done!
Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow
Ink:  Stazon, Versamark and Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps:  Altenew Lace Up and Label Love
All the other stuff:  Scarlet Red craft metal sheet, Big Shot Pro, SU! Lattice embossing folder, Hero Arts Tweed stencil, embossing paste, palette knife, Zing Leaf embossing powder, heat gun, SU! heart punches
