InKing Royalty Blog Hop: Stars!

 


Welcome to InKing Royalty's June Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites - our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month's projects feature stars. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Tried a new technique today! 


This is embossing on heat resistant acetate, then coloring the reverse side with Stampin' Blends (any alcohol marker will work). Choose a vibrant color; I used the darkest Blends I own. The tutorial (yes, Jennifer McGuire) was so cool, using glitter paper for the background. See her tutorial here. Instead, I really wanted to use this pretty Sand & Sea DSP which will be retiring at the end of this month, or until supplies last. At first I colored the sand dollar with Daffodil Delight, but there were almost too many colors. Cool thing about this technique is you only need a bit of alcohol and a Q-tip to remove the color from the back if you're not happy with it. Used liquid glue and glitter from my stash (sorry, Brian! At least the glitter is fully contained.). Much better, more subtle but blingy.

Static was quite challenging! I had to powder both the front and back of the acetate. Still had little dots of stray embossing powder, but luckily it doesn't show against this DSP. Yay! 


I used the largest of the Stitched Rectangles on a full-sized 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 thick cardstock for the frame. A sprinkle of starfish to go with our star theme!

    1. Thank you! Not very many stars in my current stash, lol! Embossing on acetate is challenging. Will be fun trying this using dies!

  2. How fun is this?! Such a great effect, too! I ALMOST went with sea stars but never would have thought to showcase them to this technique, so I'm glad I stayed away. :) Beautiful card!

    1. Thank you, Brian! Not my usual CAS style, but it's always fun to experiment. It was hard keeping the acetate static-free; next time I'm going to try using a die or dies as the overlay.

  5. So cool! I love this, and my head is spinning with ideas for using this technique. When you say acetate, did you use the window sheets? Thanks for sharing, and I'm glad your glitter is contained! LOL

    1. Thank you, Sue! I used Judikins heat resistant acetate I've had in my stash forever. Regular window sheets will probably warp when you apply heat when embossing. You can try this technique with window sheets and die cuts over the top instead of heat embossing.

    1. Thank you, Sheryl! The most challenging step is heat embossing on the acetate. I want to try this using die cuts or a die cover plate over the acetate instead.

  8. https://www.fiverr.com/seoservice35/make-390-dofollow-backlinks-manually-blog-comments-low-obl Blog comments are very essential for all blogs. They make the blogs social in the real essence of the word social. Without these comments, a blog is somewhat boring just like an ordinary one-sided conversation on a website that talks at its audience rather than with its audience. To make your blog succeed, you should allow comments from the readers on all your blog posts.
