Ink & Share July Blog Hop Masculine

Welcome to this month's Ink & Share blog  hop.  We are a group of Stampin Up Demonstrators who like to get together once a month to spread inspiration.  This month is cards for men! Always a tough theme.
I've gone for a pop up card!
The bottle on the front of the card has a wobbler stuck to the back, so it has a nice wobble!
The inside of the card is as special as the outside! Lots of popped up bottles and bunting.

As this is a men's card I've kept the colour scheme simple, only using Black, White, Lemon Lime Twist and a tiny bit of copper.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for joining us on this months Blog Hop.
Don't forget to hop along, click on the 'next' link below to see Sue McDonalds masculine card, sure to be special.

Make Your Own Scratch and Sniff Stickers

 I'm a little bit obsessed with making stickers at the moment, please check out my last post and You tube video, today I have been making Scratch and Sniff stickers.

I found out how to do this on Damask Love blog

These are some of the items you need to start.

I've made a short video on how to make these stickers, please have a watch.

1.  Measure out half a tea spoon of your Jelly powder into a container that you can keep, it must be sugar free. 

2.  Measure out one teaspoon of Stampin Up Clear embossing powder into the container with your half tea spoon of jelly powder.
Mix or shake well.

3.  Use an embossing buddy on your paper before and after stamping.  Stamp your image then stamp (or use an embossing pen) over your image with Versamark ink.

4.  Sprinkle your homemade embossing powder over the Versamark in the normal way and heat with heat gun.

It will be rough to the touch when finished but give it a quick scratch and enjoy the scent of strawberries.
