1) Cut card stock to desired size and stamp a VersaMark pad over the entire piece. Sprinkle Gold or Silver Stampin' Emboss powder over card stock piece.
2) Heat powder using heat tool. Sprinkle on additional powder while the image is still hot, and reheat. Repeat at least three times.
3) To create image, ink your stamp with VersaMark ink (to avoid sticking) and press into warm layers of embossing powder.
So for my last card of this series I wanted to show you the Chalk Board Technique . You can see another example on page 7 of the mini catty. This is just a fun little technique and you get the chalk board effect by using white craft ink on black card stock then you rub an embossing buddy over the top after you have completed your stamp. Fun!!! Leave a comment on how you liked this technique.

Can you tell what other item I love? Yesterday I told you about my love of the Flower Trim well as you can see I have used these paper doilies on two cards. The doilies are such a great value. You get 24 doilies for $2.95! Can't believe it! Anyway you cut one doilie in half then layer the two halves on top of each other and gather. Stick it to the front of your card.
What do you think about the soda pop top? Not all of the soda pop tops will crush the same. See you send the soda pop top through the Big Shot (use platform- acrylic plates - NO tabs) and it crimps it perfectly!! I love this technique! The 1" circle punch fits perfectly in the center.

Ok so yesterday I told you how much I love the Flower Trim. Here is another example. This time I took the trim and placed it in a bowl containing Cherry Cobbler ink refill and a little water. I used the water so the color would be softer. I then dried the trim and applied to the above card. What do you think? I love this card!!
