To create this cool Rebel Canvas I used the new MBoss Hologram embossing powder with a fun, classic technique to create a stamped impression in the embossing powder. The new Hologram embossing powder is soooo gorgeous and fun to use. I love that the new MBoss packaging allows for precision application and easy cleanup!

See How To Create An Amazing Card Using Mboss

by Roni Johnson

Bring up the word embossing in a group of paper-crafting people and 9 times out of 10 they are going to say they only use embossing to outline a stamped image. Well, embossing is so much more than that. Today, I want to share one of my favorite embossing techniques that I like to call “painting” with embossing powder or in this case, Imagine’s new Mboss Embossing Powders! In addition to the traditional white, black, clear, silver and gold they have a wide range of color and spectacular glittery powders to work within cardmaking projects.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Cut a piece of cardstock to the desired size. If desired, swipe or dust the cardstock with an anti-static tool/bag.


Step 2

Position the stencil over the piece of cardstock.


Step 3

Use a sponge dauber to apply VersaMark ink over the upper third of the stencil.


Step 4

Remove the stencil and shake the first color of Mboss powder over the wet ink. I started with Shimmery Night Sky. Shake off the excess powder and return it to the handy stand up pouch for future use.


Step 5

Heat the powder to melt; let cool before moving to the next step.


Step 6

Carefully reposition the stencil over the already embossed area of the card and ink up the middle third of the card again using the sponge dauber and VersaMark ink.


Step 7

Sprinkle the next color of Mboss Embossing Powder over the inked area; shake off excess and return it to the pouch.


Step 8

Use the heat tool to melt the powder.


Step 9

Repeat steps 2-5 for the final third of the card. And you’ll be left with an amazing design bursting with color, texture, and dimension.


Step 10

Mount the panel on a black card base using Tear It! Tape; stamp the sentiment with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink on scrap paper and affix it to the card using On Point Glue.

You Are My Lucky Star Hologram Embossed Greeting Card

You Are My Lucky Star Hologram Embossed Greeting Card

Imagine has released a new, innovative design in embossing powder packaging! It is in a resealable bag! It is so easy to use and clean up after. The gusseted bottom allows it to stand independently on your surface and won’t tip over easily. The fact that you can pinch the bag while you are pouring the powder onto your project allows for greater accuracy too. I used the Hologram MBoss powder on this star card and it really makes the focal point pop!

Learn How to Use Iridescent Blue Creative Medium to get 3 Different Looks

by Lindsay Adreon

Learn How to Use Iridescent Blue Creative Medium 3 Different Looks

When I first took a peek at the Iridescent Creative Medium I couldn’t quite figure it out. In the jar, it didn’t really have any shine and I couldn’t detect a color shift like other iridescent products. Then, I swatched it and let it dry. I could not stop staring at how beautiful it was! Moving the swatch in the light—I was mesmerized by the medium and how it would shift colors as I moved it around! It also looks different on different colors of cardstock, plus you can add color to it! I’m sharing three different ways to use the Iridescent Creative Medium. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy playing around and experimenting with this fun medium!
