Hey card making friends, welcome back. I’m up on the Misti/My Sweet Petunia blog today with a New Video: Nuvo Shimmer Powder Snowflake Cards, sharing how I like to mass produce holiday cards with one of my favorite techniques and products.
This Video and tutorial is also for the weekly technique tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers and you can view it here , or download it below.
The technique is a take on the Embossed Resist Technique with a fun, messy and artistic result.
For today’s Nuvo Shimmer Powder Snowflake Cards Video
I’ll be working with this fabulous “Wishes Snowflake” stamp from Colorado Craft Company and using my standard sized Misti to do all the heat embossing.
As I explain in the video, I like to cut up my watercolor paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. Then I white heat emboss the image onto all the pieces, I think I used 11 for this round.
As this is a little messy, it’s a great idea to get as many pieces ready as you can before you start and don’t forget to set up some paper towel in a convenient and close location to set aside each one to dry.
I used painters tape to tape down each piece of embossed watercolor paper to a hard board too. This helps to keep the pieces flat, it also gives you something to hold onto while you work and move them around.
I also work in my Waffle Flowers Water Media Mat. With it’s raised edges, it does a great job of keeping the pigment and the water contained for me while I’m crafting.
As you can see, the Nuvo Shimmer Powders come in beautiful colors. There is also a sheen in the pigment, so when dry, they are beautiful and shimmery too.
Nuvo Shimmer Powders used: Blue Blitz, Violet Brocade
Here is my quick video walking you through the process I like to use for this technique, and then I quickly do 3 more color combos for you, before explaining how to put the cards together:
