Convention Swap: Top Notch Swap

Too Kind was one of my first “Must Have” stamp sets from the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog.  It was an easy choice for a swap:

  • Too Kind, Petite Pairs and French Script stamp sets
  • Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Crushed Curry card stock
  • Soft Suede, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry FFIP
  • Versamark ink pad
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Heat Tool
  • Embossing Buddy
  • Linen Thread
  • Big Shot
  • Lattice TIEF
  • Window Frames Framelits
  • Paper Piercing Tool (aka Pokey Doodle)
  • Piercing Mat and Festive Paper Piercing pack
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals

I was surprised to see how much depth of color I achieved by using clear embossing powder for the second part of the two-step stamping.  That’s just Versamark with a dunk in the Crushed Curry ink and embossed with clear.  (Do you know that technique?  If you don’t have embossing powder in a color you want to use, take a clean stamp and ink it with Versamark.  Before pressing onto the paper, press your stamp into your colored ink pad.  When you stamp, the color transfers onto the paper first and the Versamark sits on top.  Quickly cover your image with clear embossing power and heat emboss!)
