Hey there! Along with our projects today, the MCT Design Team will be showing you tutorials on how to achieve the different techniques we've used.
When coming up with my technique, I wanted to be sure to show you something that I've actually done. This one is super simple and adds just a touch of shine to your projects.
On my last project, I used Crystal Effects to get a shiny gloss on my hearts. This technique, which I've dubbed "glazing" for today's donut card, gives a similar look without all of the drying time. This card uses the We're Better Together stamp set.
You'll also notice that the 'glaze' on this card isn't as perfect as on the Happy Fishies card from a couple of days ago. It has a texture to it.
1. Die cut the donut shapes out of your desired colors of cardstock.
2. Ink the donut frosting stamp in clear Versamark and stamp it onto the frosting shape.
3. Cover the Versamarked frosting shape with clear embossing powder and heat.
Final Product: A shiny, glazed donut!
*I used this same technique for the chocolate sprinkles on the edge of my card base.
After adhering my donut together with pop dots, I added different color sprinkles to the glaze.
Handy Tip: All of the MCT dies give you an easy way to release your shapes from the metal die once cut. Some dies are "open" and others are "closed" and have little holes that you can slip a poker tool through to pop out the shape (like the donut dies shown in the first instruction photo). The sprinkles die is closed and the little shapes get stuck in the die after cutting. This is a good thing!!! Instead of poking them all out and then fishing for them on your craft table, simply dot your glue on your donut where you want the sprinkles to go and then poke them out onto the glue spots. Easy peasy!
That's all for me today! Be sure to drop by Emma's blog to see the other great tutorials that the designers have in store for you.
I hope you were inspired!
