More Black Ice Projects

Sometimes when I do a special technique or style of card, I just need to keep going with it!  It's like finding that perfect pair of pants and buying them in every color...LOL!  

Several weeks ago I shared my Black Ice Technique card, which turned into several more, so I have to share them with you.   Be sure to click on the bold words in the previous sentence to see my previous post too.

My first projects is using the Magnolia Lane Suite and Champagne Foil Sheets.  I also used the Everyday Label Punch for background interest.

SAVI Sunday - 12:  Painting with Shimmer Paint.

I saw this video a while ago and thought, hmmmm, I can probably do something similar with our Shimmer Paints.  And even though it did not go totally according to plan, I still like the outcome.  


I heat embossed the floral image from the Band Together stamp set with Gold Embossing powder on Basic Black card stock.  (full product details below).  Make sure to use your Embossing Buddy lightly on the black card stock and then stamp your image and words with Versamark.  Embossing powder will stick to the Versamark.  Use your Heat Tool to melt the powder.

I then painted on Frost White Shimmer Paint and colored over with re-inkers.  

You can see how I did this in my SAVI Sunday video:

Although I did not show in my video, the full floral bloom center is where I used Pineapple Punch re-inker.  You can use any yellow re-inker for the center, or for the other colors too.  Use your imagination and change up the color scheme. 

It sure was hard getting a good image of the shimmer and color at the same time.  You should see it in person!  WOW!  


Card pieces:

  • Basic Black card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Layer of Melon Mambo 5-1/4 x 4
  • Layer of Gold Foil 5-1/8 x 3-7/8
  • Top Basic Black is 5 x 3-3/4

I hope you enjoyed this new technique and new way to use your Shimmer Paints.

Spritzing with Pigment Sprinkles

Hey everyone!  So I tried a new way of using Pigment Sprinkles and I love the results!  Results will vary every time you try this technique depending on the paper and amount of Pigment Sprinkles you use.  

Start by heat embossing some images.  I used Shimmer Black Embossing Powder with two floral images and a leaf from the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  More specific, the Painted Poppies Bundle stamp set. 


My card base is Daffodil Delight 8-1/2 x 5-1/2

Layer of Basic Black is 5-1/4 x 4 (also cut the black leaves from this layer piece).  Leaf die is from the Poppy Moments Dies. 

Whisper White layer is 5-1/8 x 3-7/8" and embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder. 


Watch my video to see how I get the Pigment Sprinkles in the Spritzer and assemble the card.

Forever Blossoms & Black Ice

If you don't know this about me already, I am in love with the Parisian Blossoms Product Suite.  Who doesn't love Paris???  I had a post a couple of weeks ago that you can see HERE of a relatively simple and pretty card.  I declared my love the product suite then and today, my mind is no different.  Matter of fact, be sure to check out yesterday's SAVI Sunday video and while there, subscribe to my channel. 

I had a in-person technique class recently, and the ladies really enjoyed the projects and were amazed at the Black Ice Technique.  I actually did this technique class probably 1-1/2 years ago but had several requests to do again.  

Here is one of the projects made with the cherry blossom flower from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set in the Parisian Blossoms suite. 


Card base is Early Espresso standard 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 scored and folded at 4-1/4.

Gold Fold Sheet cut to 5-1/4 x 4" (this is what we did the Black Ice Technique on)

Label punch is the Timeless Label Punch punched with Very Vanilla and Early Espresso.  Words were stamped using the New Saddle Brown Stazon ink pad. 

I'm excited that the Glitter Enamels Dots are still available as they make a nice accent along with the Very Vanilla satin ribbon with the gold edging. 

Here is a close up picture: 


The black ice technique is a combination of foil paper, permanent ink and clear embossing powder.  I love the texture that it leaves. Have you tried this technique?

**Before you look at my supplies list, note that I linked the Entire Parisian Blossoms Product Suite!  Just so you know, items can be individually purchased along with the 2 Bundles (stamp set w/dies) in the suite.  Questions... just shoot me an email!
