CAS Mix Up Challenge Guest Designer

Hi all! I'm so excited to be back with a second post for today as I'm Guest Designing at CAS Mix Up.

How awesome is that! And just wait till you check out the technique that's required for this month's challenge.  How amazing does this technique look and why have I not discovered it before?

Here's my card and first try out of layering embossing powders:

I started by stamping and heat embossing in white the gorgeous Winnie & Walter Bed of Roses background stamp. I then swiped it over with versamark ink - luckily the stamp pad just fitted perfectly - and heat embossed it with hologram powder. I repeated this to give another layer and amazing depth of glitter.

I die cut this panel into a stitched rectangle and then used a stack of three thanks diecuts on top. Check out all the sparkle in the photo below!

Stamps: Winnie 7 Walter, Mini Scenery Bed of roses
Inks: Versamark clear + Ranger superfine white & Funstamps hologram embossing poders
Dies: MFT Dienamics, double stitched rectangles; Lawn Fawn, Scripty Thanks

So now it's over to you. There are several tutorials on you tube about this technique and a few different ways to achieve it. Go take a look and then get busy!
