Smitten Mittens goes scrapbooking

IMG_2061

I have had so much fun using this bundle!  I love the colors, the Designer Series Paper patterns, and  the cute cute mittens!  It is so nice to have a right and left hand mitten!

For this spread, I used the Cable Knit Embossing Folder #143537…..it gives it a warm feel!

The framelits include 2 sizes of mittens….these are the small ones.  You may notice some retired sweater trim from Stampin’ Up several years ago.  I have finally used all of my stash of this trim….It has been so perfect for several winter projects over the years.

For this spread, I was aiming for something masculine.

Technique:

The faux metal strip down the left side is made by using versa mark  randomly on a piece of Basic Black card stock and pouring gold embossing powder over, shake of excess, and heating.

Repeat with silver embossing powder and repeat again with copper embossing powder

You may repeat these 3 steps until you are happy with random silver, gold, and copper color.

Next insert into the Hexagons Embossing Folder #143231 and emboss.

Finally direct to paper lightly to “knock” off the shine with Black Stazon ink pad.

1/4″ Copper Trim #144179 works awesome with this combination of embossing powders.

and for a final “pop”, use corrugated cardboard and die cut with star framelits.  Peel off one side of the paper on the cardboard and then direct to paper with ink (I used Dapper Denim for this spread)
