Here is the kit with the items it came with:
Oh, how I loved this kit. It came with two really fabulous embossing powders....my favorite is the Ranger Liquid Platinum. What a great embossing powder this is! And my friends know that I LOVE to fire (heheheheh) up that heat gun and EMBOSS! My nickname with some of my friends is "Crispy Chick" because I have been know to crisp (read: burn) some things up in the past with said heat gun! :)
I figured this kit was a great deal...the embossing powders retail for $4.99 a piece and the Distress Embossing Ink retails for $2.99. that's nearly $13 right there....but with the stamp set and the papers and sequins I only paid $19.99. Such a great value, I think!
The bad news is that this kit is no longer in stock and kits beginning in January saw a price increase. I think they are still a great value, though and I am one happy customer! And my grandkids like the lollipops they always include!
Anyway, the Liquid Platinum embossing powder is very fine and goes on beautifully...and has just the right amount of sheen to it.
Here is my card:
Here is a closer-up look:
I made this for my son (I always talk about how difficult man-ish cards are for me but I thought this fit the bill!). His birthday is in the next few days.
I also made another gift box with some papers I had on hand. Same box as in yesterday's post but instead of cutting out some flower petals which would have been decidedly NON-Man-ish I opted for some other embellishments I had on hand.
