Embossing Powder Techniques from A to Z

EPBK16_Embossing_Powder_Techniques_800
EPBK16 Embossing Powder Techniques from A to Z by Fran Seiford

Are you a craft hoarder? Saving your stash for the perfect occasion? When it comes to embossing powders and enamels, this week IS the perfect occasion! There is such a ginormous (technical term!) variety of ways to use these jars of powdery and/or chunky perfection, and our own Fran Seiford has just published a book with ALL of them! You could have this book sitting next to you, and use a different technique for every day of the year! Fran has over 35 years of experience in the crafting industry, and she’s happy to share her skills with embossing powders and other tools of the trade in her new book…Embossing Powder Techniques from A to Z. In the video below, Fran introduces you to her book at the CHA Mega Show.

Want one of your very own? You can purchase it online at Stampendous, or from crafting retail stores in your area…but wouldn’t it be awesome to win one? Three commenters from this week’s blog posts on our blog, and that of each designer’s blog post about the book will be randomly chosen to receive a copy of their own! See Official Contest Rules.

This week the design team is sharing their favorite techniques from the book and here is today’s participant.

Dreaming of Fashionable New Stampendous Stencil Duos!

1-20160201 Stencil Duos

We’ve been having such an exciting week! Paris, Milan, and New York may have their “Fashion Week”, but we have our Stampendous Stencil Duos Week! Of the four, I know which one most of us are likely to attend, and if you’ve missed any of the days this week, you’ll want to head on back to Monday’s post to catch up. All of these six new designs are tres chic and perfectly on trend. Try them on for size! Slip into your favorite crafting boutique and grab them directly off the rack, or purchase directly from the designer at Stampendous!

For instance, hearts are beating fast at this glittery little number on the runway…the Heart Duo, shown to it’s best advantage by Jamie Martin
