Reverse Stamping Technique with Wendy Vecchi Products

Tap, this thing on? I know, my crafty friends, it has been ages since I've posted on my blog. Hopefully I still have a few readers, who have stubbornly refused to believe that I was gone for good. LOL! I am still around and occasionally crafting, but with my new full time job it has been challenging to find the time or energy to craft. But this week...this week I have not one, but two projects to share!

The first is a tag featuring new products from Wendy Vecchi. These new goodies were announced in the September time frame and Wendy was kind enough to send me a few products to try. This tag features her new coffee mug mat minis, which are so adorable! This set of mat minis is sure to be one of my favorites. The mug and the pink background feature a transfer technique using Wendy's new Reverse stamp. I love this stamp and can't wait to share even more techniques using this new product. A close up of my tag is below, along with a step-by-step video, and links to where to purchase the products I used on today's tag. I hope you enjoy! Happy crafting!

Wendy Vecchi Embossing Powder Technique

Hello, my crafty friends! Welcome to a blog post that is not connected to a design team project! LOL! Oh my, most of my posts over the past few months have been dedicated to only design team projects. It's been a busy time and I haven't had much time to craft. However, when Wendy announced her newest embossing powders, and I got my hot little hands on them, I knew that I had to take some time to create just for fun!

In addition to the fun I had playing with the new embossing powders, I also created a video sharing a fun and easy technique combining embossing powders and stencils. This is a great way to use your stencils in a new way and create beautiful high-gloss backgrounds, embellishments, and mat minis.  

View the video below and check out product links below the video. Enjoy and happy crafting!
