Let it Snow!

Great day to rubber stamp in the south.  Snow, ice and freezing rain.  I have been very busy getting ready for my next class stampscapes coloring technique which will be Jan. 23.  You can check out my website for all the info in the class section http://www.astampineveryhand.com/
I am posting a simple stampscapes card I did in a class last Nov. which is a technique discovered by one of my students.  Thank you Doris!  This card has sold a lot of stamps and glitter for the store I work in.
The stampscapes cabin by the lake is stamped on plain white card stock with dye base dark blue ink .  Heat set the ink and then run it through the Xyron create-a-sticker machine face down so the adhesive goes on to the image.  Use a bone folder or ruler and rub it across the image several times before you remove it from the sticker   paper to make sure the adhesive is completely covering the image.  Remove the sticker paper and place the image in a coffee filter and sprinkle with Glamor Dust or fine glitter.  I really like the Glamor Dust.  Now you are ready to mat you image and attack to your card.  Try this technique with other stamps.  The over all glitter effect is very impressive.  You can stamp and color your image just make sure you heat set the ink.
