Hi Everyone, it is designer April again! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share a card I made using one of Sparkle N Sprinkle’s new stamp sets called Espresso Yourself 699. I do not drink coffee but I sure do love the smell of it brewing!
I had so much fun making my background using white stencil paste and embossing powders. Here is a short tutorial.
I used very dark brown card stock and taped my stencil over it to hold it down well.
I covered the whole card stock and stencil with white stencil paste.
When the stencil is lifted off it looks like this.
This is the fun part. I sprinkled Sienna Star EP425, Tuscan Star EP426 and Log Cabin EP397 embossing powders over the wet stencil paste. I then heat set the embossing powders with my heat tool. I got this beautiful shimmery and textured background!
I also used Brown Fizz EP381 embossing powder for the “coffee” in the cup and on the saying. Diamond Glaze was used on the coffee cup to make it look like porcelain. You can see some of the shine on the edge of the saucer.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed day!
