Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a lovely Monday. Spring Break is officially over for me this week so I am now getting back into the routine. Too bad the fun couldn’t last another week!!
Today, I made a little card and tutorial for Just Buggin’. Be sure to come on over and play along this week :O)
This technique is a great way to make your own “faux” epoxy stickers. I love the look of Crystal Effects. It just adds a glossy look to whatever it is covering.
*Die cut (here I used a shamrock from the A Child’s Year cartridge)
*Crystal Effects (in the blue bottle)
*Other project materials (I have a scallop frame cut out from the A Child’s Year cartridge.)
The first step is to assemble your card. Be sure to attach your die cuts very securely around the edges because the Crystal Effects will make your die cuts raise up off your project if the die cut isn’t secured down very well.
Carefully, cover your die cut entirely with a thin coat of Crystal Effects. The bottle has a fine tip so it is easy to control where the glaze is going to go.
Let the glaze dry and you will have a nice glossy embellishment!!!
- My shamrock was cut our from designer paper in the Welcome Neighbor designer pack that is only available for Sale-a-bration until the end of the month.
- The sentiment on my card is from the Stampin’ UP Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I punched it out of Certainly Celery cardstock using the Modern Label Punch.
- The scallop shape was made out of Kraft Cardstock.
- And my card base is Old Olive Cardstock.
