Workshop Card

I found a card very similar to this on SCS this morning. I wanted to do one more card for the workshop today.


SU does not have chocolate brads, and they retired the copper ones, so what's a girl to do? Well, make them silly. I took my retired copper brads and inked them up with chocolate chip craft ink. Dipped the brad in clear embossing powder, and heated. So what do you think, easy huh? Oh one thing make sure that you use the tweezers to hold the brad -- they get REALLY hot!!!

Stamps: Baroque Motifs Inks: Chocolate Chip, River Rock Paper: Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Brocade Background DP Extras: brads, dimensionals, clear embossing powder, heat gun, tweezers, stamp-a-ma-jig, scallop circle punch

This is gorgeous, Corie! I love brown tones and love, love, love this set! Beautiful dp, too!

My SU Demo showed us to use our dye inks to colour the brads, then dip in your VersaMark pad, coat with clear embossing powder and heat set. Just another route, if you don't have a lot of craft inks.

I really like that punch, it's a perfect size for the flower...oh decisions, decisions on what my next order is going to be! I 'need' to win the lottery! lol :)

Hugs,
Julie

Such an awesome card. I just ordered this stamp set myself and should get it this week (I hope). The way you put the patterned paper in the centre is lovely. The way you placed the swirls and sentiment is lovely as well. Very nice card indeed.

Very pretty! I like how you used the scallop punch with this...it works great with that image. I miss copper brads too, but the chocolate chip ones you made are even better.
