Stampin Up dandelion wishes

Dandelions and brusho crystals

It was a bit too hot in the garden, so I came in to have some playtime in the crafting cave.  I do love the dandelion wishes stamp set and as I haven’t played with the brusho crystals for a while, I got them them out to play with as well.

I’m finding the stamparatus is a great tool, not just for when you want to do multiple stamping, but also as a stamping block.  I do have other stamps that are bigger than my blocks so it is becoming very useful especially with the background stamps. Plus I am getting a better impression as it has the foam pad.

What I have I been doing. Well, firstly I had stamped an image from the dandelion wishes using the stamparatus as I wanted to emboss my image which I did using the clear embossing powder.  This is playtime and kind of off the cuff!  I then heat set that and gave a wash of wink of stella, I wanted to shiny!  I then dried that off with the heat gun which has a cooler setting for drying.

Next, I sprinkled on some brusho crystals and then gave it a spritz with some water.  Then dried that off again using the heat tool.

I was going to leave it as it is with the feint background, but the ink pads got the better of me!  I had stamped again with memento black, popped some versamark on top and then some clear embossing powder and then heat set that.  I did the same with the sentiment.  Using the stamparatus makes it a breeze,  if you’ve not seen my tutorial tip on using the stamparatus to do heat embossing, check it out here.

This is a fun technique and it’s great to get out the brusho crystals and create some backgrounds.  I hope you are inspired to get your crafting supplies and have some crafting fun.
