Dasher goes gold

If you’ve stamped with me, you know I love Stampin’ Up!’s Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  With just the right amount of glitter, it is perfect to accent an image stamped in Encore Gold metallic ink.  That’s what we did on this card the other night at Mary Lou’s workshop.  The metallic ink dries faster than craft, but stays wet enough to emboss.  We used that same technique on this card in September.

This is also the first card we’ve done in a workshop or camp that uses the spray created with a few ounces of rubbing alcohol and a few drops (blobs) of the beautiful Shimmer Paint featured in the Holiday Mini.  (Please, please, please, don’t discontinue this product!  This world needs all the bling we can give it!)  It’s subtle, almost adding a feeling of depth to the solid card stock.  I’m just sorry I can’t capture that in a photo.

Oh, and if I can persuade Mary Lou to share the recipe for her fabulous Ho Ho Cake, I’ll post it here!
