Cracked Glass Technique
This is my swap for the Stampin Up Convention for 2015 on the Gold Coast. We have just arrived today and I wanted to share with you a sneak peek of my Swap. Swaps are a great way to meet people but also to get some ideas from other fellow demonstrators. It is a crazy busy time with people swapping madly, I will try and get some pictures of the madness.
So my swap is a little plain compared to other years but this is a showcasing a technique that I had wanted to try for a long time. Cracked Glass is applying layers and layers of clear embossing powder and then allowing it to dry and then cracking it. I did about 3-4 layers and just bent it carefully. Most of the time it cracked well other times if I was too rough it snapped the card. I know it may be hard to see but hopefully you can see the cracks. You can also run a sponge or ink over the cracks to make it stand out a little more. I didn’t do this on this card.

Well I have been a stamper for many years now and Im heading into my eighth year as a Stampin Up Demonstrator. Today I was pondering while making some swaps for the upcoming Australian Convention and I was thinking that so many stamp sets and products have come and gone in that time. I was pondering about what Products I have loved that have gone and ones that I have stayed. I could tell you that its ink pads, cardstock or adhesives, but its not one of those things. For a while I lost this particular item and found that I was lost without it. I can be such a Messer (is that even a word?) when stamping and if you have attended one of my workshops you will know that one of my favorite sayings is – “If it was supposed to be a perfect card you would buy it at the shop!” Well I’m not going to give it up that easy but I can tell you that it is on Page 204 of the Current Stampin Up! Catalogue. First Person to comment correctly on what the product may be I will reward them with one of these 🙂 Can’t wait to hear your thoughts
