Try a Technique Tuesday - Polished Stone



This is a super cool technique that I first saw done by my friend Jac! We then did it at club and it is soooooo easy and so cool looking. The card I have for you we also did white embossing and so it's extra special. Check out this: Polished Stone for the "original" technique using metallic ink. This card is using this technique: Magic Snowflake which is similar to Polished Stone but uses glossy cardstock, and you emboss your image in white first and then do the polished stone over the image which after wiping "magically" appears! (note: SCS tutorial says to emboss again after dabbing with cotton ball - can just wipe off) This is just so fun and can be a really intense background or very subtle like shown here!
To do this stamp a solid image in white craft ink on glossy cardstock and emboss with white EP (or I guess clear would work too). Take a cotton ball and partially soak with rubbing alcohol then put a dot of each ink you want to use and dab onto cardstock - repeat and swirl and such to hearts content. Let dry a few seconds (dries super fast) then wipe off image with paper towel - ink doesn't dry on embossed image. Trim to desired size, use to create card! Viola!

Who is the Krafty Mama?


Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
