High Tide Black Ice Technique

The silver foil paper is perfect for this beachy themed card using the Black Ice Technique.


The hardwood stamp is the perfect background for this card.  The texture on the card is so spectactular!

To keep it simple, I just tied a knot on the front of the card.

Country Livin' Black Ice Technique

This card is a sweet, yet rustic card that showcases the black ice technique.  The focal point is stamped on copper foil paper.


The boots were stamped on copper foil paper and the technique was done on that (see video below).

A strip of crumb cake card stock that was embossed with the Pinewood Planks folder and sponged with soft suede ink, adds a bit of interest to the card.

The hemp tied at the bottom add the perfect finishing touch!

Beautiful Day Black Ice Technique

Although this technique seems a bit intimidating, it really is a fun technique to try!  I so enjoyed experimenting with it!


In this closeup shot, you can better see the texture from the technique.  It really does look like black ice that we deal with here in the Northeast every winter!

 I only wanted the "Happy Birthday" part of the sentiment stamp, so I  inked those words up using a Basic Black Stampin Write Marker.  (More details in the video below).

You've Got This Card of Support

I really like the way this card turned out, and I'm sure that the woman to whom I am sending it will find some comfort in it.  It came together pretty easily, and the extra touches make it more special.



I used the new Stamparatus to heat emboss the beautiful flower.  It allowed me to emboss the flower in Blushing Bride.

The sentiment was die cut using one of the circles from the Layering Circles set and it was mounted on a scalloped circle from the same set.  The addition of the pearls adds just the right touch.

To finish off the card, I stamped a portion of the flower on the bottom corner of the front of the envelope.

The back of the envelope was also decorated with a stamped image of the flower.
