Black Ice Technique for Fun Encouragement Card

Sometimes sitting down to create without a plan can lead to something really fun. I really wanted to share this with you today! This will be my mantra for 2019.

To create this card, I used the newΒ Black Ice TechniqueΒ and the Enjoy Life Stamp set fom Stampin Up.

Black Ice Technique:

  1. Cut your silver foil to size for your card or project.
  2. In a swiping motion, lightly apply your Staz-on black stamp pad directly to the foil.
  3. Using Staz-on again, stamp your scene. I used the Enjoy Life Stamp set with the grasses and the champion pose!
    • Let this dry completely. I’m impatient, so I used a heat tool.
  4. In a light swiping motion (in the same direction), apply your Versamark stamp pad directly across the foil.
    • It’s difficult to see the ink since it’s clear, but this is a fool-proof step. If you don’t think there’s enough ink, just swipe a few more times.
  5. Pour clear embossing powder over the entire card and tap off the excess. It’ll stick to the versamark ink.
    • Heat emboss the powder. I love how it melts and now looks like ice!!
  6. Use your black iced foil panel to create your project!
