The fine detailed Doily die from Waffle Flower is versatile to use beyond card making. Covered with Mboss embossing powder in Gold, it gives the look of a true metallic made piece that works as the main body of the napkin ring. By choosing from any of the colors of the Mboss embossing powder you can match your table theme. Simple and easy to make, this napkin ring shows excellent around a white cloth napkin.
Skill: Beginner to Intermediate Time: 1 hour per four pieces
Die-cut a doily circle with the Waffle flower die. Waffle Flower dies work with any brand of machine such as Spellbinders or Sizzix.
Press the VersaMark watermark ink pad on the die-cut dolly, cover with the Mboss gold embossing powder and heat set. Repeat once more to create a thick texture.
Glue the organza ribbon to the middle back of the gold embossed dolly cut.
Color the white leaves and flowers with Sheer SHIMMER STIX gold.
Use the hot glue gun to set the flowers and the leaves onto the doily.
Add the flower embellishments with the On Point Glue.
Hey there, crafty friends! Today, I have an exciting wedding card project to share with you. I’m a big fan of stretching my craft supplies and finding new, creative ways to use them. In today’s video, I’m teaching how you can combine dry and wet embossing on Rinea Foil Paper to create a new technique! It’s simple, but there are no limits to what you can create because you can choose from a wide array of embossing folders and embossing powders. I hope you feel inspired to give this technique a try. If you liked it, be sure to leave a like or comment to let me know!

The before and after is as different as night and day and the extra steps definitely bring the flowers to life. Be sure to check out the video and see it for yourself!

The versatility of stamps and ink is the best part of my everyday. When it comes to making beautiful cards or wedding invitations the sky is the limit. I wanted to see how the new StazOn pigment would work on various handmade papers that I often use for invitations and there’s no surprise that this ink is made for so much more than the ordinary. Take a look at what I stamped on this invitation all using this amazing ink.
Skill: Beginner Time: 30 minutes
Print the details of the invitation on smooth foiled handmade paper and trim to the desired size. Mine measures 5 x 7”.
Next, I stamped a small little flower randomly all over the printed invitation using StazOn in Snowflake. It’s there and looks amazing but hard to see on a photo.
Trim a piece of acetate the same size as the invitation details and stamp a lace border at the bottom and the same small flower as previously on the top half of the acetate piece.
Use the same small flower and stamp it onto your silk ribbon using the StazOn Pigment. This was my best discovery that it stamped perfectly, was dry instantly and looks amazing.
Layer a handmade piece of textured paper at the bottom, then the invitation details portion, handmade silk paper with the stamped acetate on top of it all. Adhere the paper pieces together with On Point Glue using a small drop only.
Punch 2 holes at the top of the layered stack and tie with the stamped ribbon into a bow.
All the stamped layers look so amazing on top of each other and this ink worked on all the surfaces I tried and tested – and the end result is simply exquisite.
