Stampendous and Beacon Adhesives
All this week, Stampendous is joining forces with Beacon Adhesives. Beacon is the official liquid adhesive of the TV show, Craft Wars and has a liquid adhesive to meet all of your crafting needs. I love using Zip Dry when making cards. Recently my love affair has expanded to another Beacon product, Fast Finish Decoupage. It is a great sealant and decoupage medium. Here are a couple other projects I made using this fantastic product: coaster set and witch hat.
Today, I created some chipboard tags to be used during the holidays. I started with a *chipboard ornament mini album, making each page a separate tag. I stamped various Stampendous Christmas images on each ornament using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with
Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. I then brushed each ornament with Beacon Fast Finish to seal it. Each tag has several coats of the sealant, with drying time in between. As tags, I probably didn't need to seal them but to be honest, I was originally going to give these to my son as magnets that he could place on friends' lockers at school. I love the 'finished' look that sealing them created. The next step was to swipe the 'hanger' of each ornament with VersaMark and emboss using Stampendous Embossing Enamel. I used Aged Gold and Shabby Blue.
Here is some more inspiration from some of my Design Team friends. Please visit their blogs and leave them some love. We all really appreciate you taking the time to look and comment on our creations. Please note that this Saturday we will have a huge Stampendous/Beacon Blog Hop. I hope you'll join us.
Thank you so much for visiting today!
* I think the chipboard ornament album is a Clear Scraps product but I am sorry I do not know for sure.
