What you'll need
A pair of scissors
Double sided sticky tape
An assortment of card (colours of your choice)
A rubber stamp
Spongy sticky tape
An Ink it up ink pad (I usually use silver)
A Heat it up heat tool
Plain cards (size and colour of your choice)
Some Heat it up embossing powders (of your choice - I used snowflake and holographic mostly)
A piece of paper to protect your work area
Either a craft tidy or a piece of folded paper to pour unused glitter back into the tub
Step 1 - take your chosen stamp and the ink pad, and ink up the stamp well.
Step 3 - push the stamp down really hard on your chosen card for the stamp background.
Step 3 - you'll be left with this silver print on your card.
** YOU'LL NEED TO ACT FAST WHILE IT'S DAMP/TACKY **
Step 4 - pick the Heat it up powder you want to use (I'm using Holographic)
Step 5 - generously cover the print to ensure it's completely covered
Step 6 - tap off the excess into a craft tidy or your folded piece of paper (then pour excess back into the pot)
Step 7 - this is what it will look like
Step 8 - plug in the heat it up heat tool, wait for a good 5-10 secs to heat up, then hold it about 1inch away from the design, and slowly move it over, you'll see it change texture / colour as you go
Step 9 - take some scissors and cut out the design, leaving a small border around it
Step 10 - this is what it should look like
Step 11 - cut out a rectangle of your chosen fancy paper to sit behind it, it'll need to be bigger than the stamped shape to leave a border and cover the back of your stamped card in double sided sticky tape
Step 12 - stick the stamp cutout onto the fancy paper, centering it
Step 13 - take some spongy sticky tape and cut out two strips to sit on the back of the topper you've created
Step 14 - stick to chosen card, and done!
Step 15 - be very careful when putting glitter back into pot, this can happen :p
Also, have some fun with it, experiment with different embossing powders, different stamps on different cards and with different inks - each time you'll get a completely different effect, some will work and some won't, but finding out is the fun part :)
There'll be another instalment of card making in about a week with some different designs so watch this space!
