(This is an example of information and materials received when you order one of my kits. )

 Let’s look at a few cards. 

Many of you received one of these cards at OnStage Atlanta. This card is made with Wood Texture DSP and the Layered Leaves embossing folder. It  started with Silver Foil DSP and copper embossing powder. Since the card was on basic black, the amount of black smeared with the black ice technique is light. 

I hate it when there is a lot of waste to my 6×6 paper. So here is a simple change to use the scrap paper.

Another example of how awesome this technique can be. The dragonfly has been covered with Wink of Stella and a piece of vellum behind his wings colored in Stampin Blends completes this card.
This is one of my favorites. The Heartfelt Bloom was one of our awesome stamps during Sale-a-bration. (Scroll down to see how you can still get one). As you can see, I started with Silver Foil DSP and made sure the black was heavier on both top and bottom. This time I used clear embossing powder and no embossing folder. After I finished the setting the embossing powder; it was colored with the Stampin’ Blends.
