Make It Monday #298 - Faux Epoxy Embellishments

Hello friends.  Betsy is up with this weeks Make It Monday challenge and shows us how using clear embossing powder can make faux epoxy embellishments to add to our cards.

Little bit of a learning curve on this one for me as I decided to use double sided DSP...once you put several layers of embossing powder on your image, shadows from the backside of the DSP start to show through.  Grrrrr!!  It's not terrible and I might be the only one who notices it, but it's just one of those things that bugs me...but not enough to start over!


I used Canyon Clay and Simply Chartreuse DSP and both of Kay Miller's stamp sets (Spooky Smiles and Stylized Autumn) to create my card.


I did have an "aha!" moment while making these embellishments...my 3 year old granddaughter LOVES stickers, and I got to thinking why not use the dies or fussy cut the shapes from double sided sticker paper and attach to the back of these faux epoxy embellishments to make hand stamped stickers?!  I think my little Addy would get such a kick out of peeling off a backing paper and then sticking these cute little pumpkins somewhere...most likely on herself or her baby brother!  :0)

There's still a few days to play along with this challenge, so check it out and play right HERE

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  1. Cute little pumpkins and even better that you made stickers out of them! My grandson likes to use my Xyron X to make stickers out of everything. This was when he was younger...probably does not have the same enthusiasm now that he is 6 (kind of sad). Enjoy your grandkids while they are young. 😁

  2. Yes! What a cute idea to make hand stamped stickers for Addy! Landon would look darling covered in pumpkins! ;0) Your card is super cute Marcia!! Love the little trio of happy pumpkins and the borders along the bottom give them a nice place to perch.

  3. Oh how darling, Marcia! I'm not at all happy with my card, but didn't think to just use a die cut shape without attaching it to a circle. Great idea to use printed paper--love the pumpkins & now I remember why those leaves are on my wishlist!

  4. Wow, these are so adorable Marcia. I tried to do this MIM but what I came up with was not so cute. So couldn't even make a card with them. Oh well.

  5. Marcia, what a cute, cute card! The leafy branch and splatters are a lovely touch. And I can't see any shadows on it...remember your advice to me that "we are our own worst critics!" lol

  6. Look at those darling polka-dot-faced pumpkins! Love how you stacked them and make great stickers, too. Your colorful paper strips really add to your design, Marcia. I'm so far behind in blog hopping, I just saw your new blog design. Mine needs an overhaul also. Happy October!
