Pendant Park Thanks

Tree colored in using Stampin' Pastels

Look at the shimmer you get using clear embossing powder
I don't know if you are like me, but when a new mini catalog comes out I get so busy playing with all of my new things that I forget about all of the other wonderful Stampin' Up! products I have.  So I am going to try to make it a point at least once a week to work with something I haven't used in awhile  and share it with you on my blog.  Today I used my Stampin' Pastels and used the Poppin' Pastels technique for my card.

To start I took a piece of Old Mustard cardstock and layered a piece of Spice Cake Designer Series Paper on top.  I embossed these layers with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  For my central image I took my Versa Mark ink and stamped my tree.  I then took my Stampin' Pastels and colored in the leaves using a variety of colors.  First I covered the whole tree in More Mustard, then added some Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive pastels to make it look like fall.  I wanted to add some more shimmer so my next step was to take my Versa Mark ink pad and cover the whole image and emboss it using clear embossing powder.

So remember to do this technique all you have to do is stamp your image in Versa Mark ink and then using your sponge daubers, stamping sponges, or the applicators that come with your pastels fill in your image.   You don't have to do the next step of embossing the whole layer because it looks nice either way.  I just added it for more shine!

Oh it feels good to use a stamp set and product that haven't seen much use in awhile.  What product do you have sitting on a shelf that wants to be used?
