This next picture is of the card I made for Friday's Limited Supplies challenge. The challenge was to use up your scraps...and I so need to reduce my scraps! I have and this piece of DP was the one I chose to sacrifice in the making of this card. The outcome was a HIT! Now I need to buy some more of this DP because it was one of my favorite pieces that I had saved in the scraps pile! The vellum I used for the butterfly was also a scrap. I have to say this one was a true challenge being that I had to trim these pieces of 1 inch "tiles" using my left hand and then cutting the butterfly with my right (hurting) hand. I should have dome it the other way around...lol.

Sorry I've been away for a while...I've just had to deal with rain, headaches, and not to mention a swap I have open and 1 closed over at SCS. So I'm trying my best to hang in there and tough it out with a cold, headache, and insomnia!
On another note...I just got a new shipment of stamps from Rubbernecker, Addicted To Rubber Stamps, Bombshell Stamps, & have some from Paper Trey Ink coming in, as well as some sets I bought from Jen. So be on the lookout for more cards in the near future! *wink*

UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel)
Stamps of choice
Inks of choice to stamp & color (optional)
Staz-On Ink for image
Stamp image and color as desired (optional step)
next dab Versamark ink all over piece of CS you want to "glass"
in tray, sprinkle UTEE powder. Lift image and shake off excess powder. Put left over powder back into UTEE jar.
begin embossing. Be careful, it could get messy in this part as the UTEE powder/crystals will fly all over the place. If you have glasses, USE THEM or have some goggles at hand. Heat until all the powder is melted.
at the first heat thru, you'll maybe notice some "bubble like" embossing, repeat embossing with a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 5 times. Always rub the Versamark over each step before adding the UTEE.
do this until it's smooth and glossy and stick in freezer for about 10-15 minutes...depending on how thick your UTEE embossing is.
when you bring it out of the freezer, it may be curled...use that to start cracking your "glass"
next, get a sponge, cotton, or dauber to ink up the cracks (optional step)
assemble your card! You're done!
Questions? Let me know!
Versamark Ink (or any clear embossing pad)
Stamps of choice
Clear embossing powder
Distressing Ink or Classic SU Ink (but any ink will work)
cotton balls or daubbers
BTW...if you didn't notice Monday's challenge missing...well, it called for color combos I didn't have...but I'll see if I can still come up with it with something similar.
