Hello Gorgeous Bister Card on Crackerbox Palace Friday



It's Crackerbox Palace Friday and I am sharing a “gorgeous” card I made with Crackerbox Palace stamps, an embossing folder and a new product I recently discovered called Bisters. If you follow my blog, you know Bisters are a water soluble powder that you sprinkle on your paper, spritz with water and amazing colors appear. If you scroll down on my blog, you will see more cards I have posted with this fun and inexpensive product. I have to admit- this card is one of my favorites so far. My favorite color currently is teal so I started with a beautiful teal cardstock, then embossed a border with a classic embossing folder from Darice. I heat embossed this gorgeous silhouette CBP stamp on watercolor paper with black embossing powder. Then I sprinkled various colors of the Bister powders and spritzed with water. After it dried, I cut out the stamped image along the border and attached to the card. The Hello Gorgeous stamp seemed perfect – I just love the font. As is often the case, I cut it apart since the Hello was above the Gorgeous, and now I can choose to use it either way. This is one of the great advantages of cushion mounted stamps vs. wood mounted.

Don’t forget you can save 15% off your order at Crackerbox Palace.com with my name (Karen) in the coupon code box. All I ask is that you sign up as a follower here and then go shop for all these great stamps and more.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Kraftin’ Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday and the Embossing challenge at Penny’s Paper-Crafty.

I agree with you Karen - this would be my favourite card with this technique. I have never heard of Bisters before but love what you are creating with this product. Beautiful.

This is absolutely awesome. The solid image is gorgeous against your Bister background. It looks like a beautiful end of the day with a gorgeous sunset. I love this and yes, this is my favorite of yours too!
