It's technique time! This week I have had no time whatsoever to stamp. So I went way back into my stash to find a card for the technique this week.
This week's technique is, Scratch & Sniff cards!
These are easy to do. All you do is mix Kool Aid and clear Embossing Powder and then use it like normal on a card. For my card I searched the galleries at SCS for inspirations. I found one by noblerubies that I semi-Cased.So, here is what I did. I first started by mixing my unsweetened strawberry kool aid and my clear embossing powder (I do a 50/50 mixture). Then I set that aside. After that I stamped my chocolate chips from Oh So Sweet using Chocolate Chip ink onto Chocolate Chip cardstock (that's a lot of chocolate LOL) Then (it's hard to see in the picture) I stamped the Canvas BG stamp onto Real Red Cardstock using Real Red ink. Then I added the real red to the Chocolate chip base so that the card was half red, half brown. Then I added Black Grosgrain to blend the two better. Now for the image. I stamped my strawberry using my markers onto my Whisper White piece. Then I stamped it again using versamark directly over the first strawberry. Then I poured my mixture of koolaid and embossing powder over it and tapped off the excess, heated it up using the heat gun and viola! When it was cooled down I matted it to real red cardstock and then attached it to my card, finishing it off with a sentiment stamped in black in the lower right hand corner.
Give these a try! And you can get really creative and instead of using kool aid you can use cocoa or cinnamon or whatever. *grin* Have fun with it!
