Make It Monday #184: Gold Dipped Die-cuts

This week Danielle's Make it Monday is all about dipping die cuts into embossing powder for a fun effect.

I used Turning a New Leaf and Phrase Play #3 stamp sets and die, Rustic Cream CS and Lavendar Moon patterned paper. I used gold embossing powder on the leaves and sentiment. I cut the card front with the leaf image and backed it with vellum.

And I finally got around to doing the "cut three dies and adhere them together to get a thicker embellishment" technique.
This  MIM was such a fun and inspiring idea!

Thanks for looking:)

Papertrey Ink Make it Monday - Mason Jars!

This week Melissa Phillips showed us how to stamp and embellish a mason jar in this week's Make it Monday video. 

I always plan to participate in these weekly challenges because the different techniques seem so fun, but I usually don't get around to it. This time I went right out to the canning cupboard and selected a jar.

I used the Turning a New Leaf stamp set to add leaves using a sparkly gold embossing powder. I added a 'Melis' bow, added a Tiny Tag embellished with a button, a gold punched leaf, and metallic gold paper behind the little heart.

I chose this jar because of how cute the back is:)

What a super fun challenge this week. Thanks for looking and happy Fall!
