Think Outside the Box with Dies and Stamps!

Hello everyone!
Do you love dies!!!
Join the club ….
SO DO I!!!
I want to encourage today to use your dies to think out side the box…
You don’t always need to use them in card making or scrapbooking
BUT… 
you can challenge yourself to create home décor pieces like the Hello Frame I created. 
I bought an inexpensive frame and covered it pretty pattern paper from Authentique.
Die cut a doily and stamped Hello using black ink in the center and adhered it to the top of the prepared frame with my Xyron Adhesive. 

Die cut pretty flowers and stems and adhere to the corner of the prepared frame. 
(I used Diamond Press Dies and Stamps for my Hello Frame.)
Diamond Press creates unique products that can be purchased on HSN or in their online Shop…

Add finishing details by punching out and layering circles together and adding enamel dots to centers of the flowers! 
BUT WAIT…
THERE IS MORE…
How about a refrigerator magnet!
YEP…
YOU HEARD RIGHT!
Die cut you favorite flower die out using pattern paper; adhere layers together!
Add die cut leaves and stems to the underside of the flower. 
Adhere to top of circle magnet. 
WHALLA LA…
REFRIGERATOR MAGNET!
I hope you are inspired today to create fabulous projects using your dies and stamps that you have in your stash!
Enjoy Pam

Chrismas Day Wall Art with Rock Candy Embossing Powder – Emerald Creek Supplies

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying the projects done with Pam Bray Designs Rock Candy Embossing Powders from Emerald Creek Supplies. The holidays are the perfect time to create exciting and unexpected projects with new products. 

Rock Candy Embossing Powder can be used to give dimension to small bits of plastic; just remember to take your time and keep your embossing gun a bit further away as the plastic will curl. 
As the Rock Candy Embossing Powder heats; sprinkle extra powder and texture to top and continue to heat emboss.

You can use Rock Candy Embossing Powder to give dimension to flowers and floral pieces. 
If you don’t want the texture just push it off and heat emboss.

If you want to add dimension to metal… well apply embossing ink to the top; add Rock Candy Embossing Powder to top; sprinkle more on as it is being embossed to give more texture.

How about taking an ordinary frame to make it extraordinary….Dry brush an second color of paint to the top of frame; dry.
 Apply embossing ink to top and add your favorite Rock Candy Embossing Powder to the top to give lots of dimension. 
Remember as you are heat embossing to always add a few more sprinkles here and there.
 Enjoy Pam
