Parital Embossing & Water Colors. Way’s to use it Wednesdays Ep.3

Welcome to Episode 3. In this series, it’s my goal to show you ways to use something you may already own in a different way. Let’s stretch our supplies and get the most use out of them that we can. Right?!
Grab ANY background stamp that pleases you. Or you can pull out the Breathtaking Bouquet Cling set. Any detailed background will work here. Choose your favorite embossing powder, I did my card in Gold. 
Great! Got your stamp ready? Click the video right below here to see exactly how I achieved this gorgeous effect with some embossing powder and a paintbrush.
Wasn’t that fun? Did you learn something new or have you done this technique before? How about the way I used the watercolor pencils? That is my most FAVORITE way to use them. Probably because I do a lot of watercoloring with pallets and tubes. 
Did you know that you can also use a few layers of clear embossing powder on the “YOU” to make it shiny? Do you know how to depress an item into the Versamark so you can emboss it any color you like? If not I have a video here and here that shows you how to do it.
Anyhow, I thought I would let you know in case you are in a pinch and don’t have the products I used. 
QUESTION: Which was the best “Way to use it” today. The Embossing or the Watercolor Pencils?
Happy Stampin’

Make Your Own Bunnies!! Way’s to use it Wednesday Ep.2

Welcome back to “Way’s to use it Wednesday’s” Where every Wednesday, I show you something you can do with an item you may already have, that you may not have already thought of.

I’m starting to make my Easter cards. Call me an eager beaver, or BUNNY! lol
However, I have to mail some Easter cards to some friends in Cuba, and it seems the mail literally takes months, and months to get there! We sent ourselves a PostCard from Havana, Cuba on January 5th this year, and it has still yet to find it’s way to our mailbox *sad face* I wonder how long it will actually take? Anyhow, to not have to risk my friends not getting their cards, I’m getting an early start =)

 Aren’t these little bunnies just too adorable?!? When I saw one of the little dies in the Detailed Bands Die set I instantly thought of bunny ears. Well, that was it. I was on a mission to create some little bunnies. I finally came up with the idea of using the Balloon Bouquet Punch with the ‘ears’ die and started making my card. 
Watch the video to see how they came to life and learn a few tips & tricks =)
Wasn’t that a fun video!? Thanks for Watching =)

Happy Stampin’!
