10th Day of Advent

Fifteen more days to go (eek must make some Christmas cards!), and today a new idea, which I discovered on Suze Weinberg's blog , and which I have been dying to try. Using my meltpot, I melted our ultra thick silver powder. Then using a rubber stamp ( this is a christmas snowflake one from CaroLines). I laid a memory frame on top of the rubber die. Note you cannot use clear stamps, and then poured the utee into the frame. No ink is necessary. I allowed it to cool, and then rubbed ruby slippers stickles over it. I am definitely going to do some more of these.Voila! a Christmas decoration for the tree
To celebrate that I now have 65 followers ( I am amazed, and thank you all, and for the lovely comments), I am giving away 2 prizes tonight, both stamps, and both random from our wonderful collection. So comment away to be in with a better chance, and please add my blog candy link to your blog if you feel inclined.

Yesterday's winner, picked by the Random Integer Generator is Susie Little.
Congratulations and please email me to send me your snail mail address.

Back tomorrow with more....

oh I have the stuff to do this but have always been a bit aprehensive - sort of frightened of ruining one of my precious stamps. Love what you have done. I must give it a go sometime soon. Actually I think I'll start a list of New Year things to do instead I the usual 'things to stop'.

I can't wait to have a go at this - it's great.

I have heated UTEE and stamped into it on card but not used one of the frames.

I have one to practice on - then will need to order some more. I shall ask Father Christmas for some craft money!

I love the textured look. jerryb17011@yahoo.com

Jennie said...

Just a thought if you don' have a elting pot , you can layer the powder onto the rubber within the frame and melt with a heat gun. This should still work , *she says hopefully*
