Diamond Dust Technique Tutorial with Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions

For many, many years, we used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder for the diamond dust technique on our handmade cards. Then, Stampin’ Up! retired it. I have good news, I’m going to show you how to make your own and how the technique is done with the Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions card.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions card with the diamond dust technique designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comMaking your own Iridescent Ice Embossing Power is quite easy to make now that you know the proportions.Use glitter all over your handmade cards without the mess with the diamond dust technique. The outcome is dazzling!

 

It’s highly unusual for me to use a ribbon that isn’t one of the colors of the ink or cardstock. The Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon looks good with the mix of warm Terracotta Tile and Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin’ Pads ink for the large flowers.

Try This with Your Stamp Positioning Tool for Quicker Cardmaking

While making a handmade card with the new Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Stamp Set and coordinating Stitched Lace Dies, I decided to try a new accessory for my stamp positioning tool I had picked up to use with it. I want you to see it because I found it makes cardmaking even quicker and easier.

Try this with your stamp positioning tool for quicker cardmaking with the Stampin' Up! A Little Lace Stamp SetThe Creative Corners accessory for my Stamparatus worked as well as hoped and did save time making my Stampn’ Up! A Little Lace cards. Like the Stamparatus, it will be especially useful when making several handmade cards at a time. Click HERE to find it where I purchased the accessory.

 

 Did you see my other A Little Lace cards using different color combinations for the lace background, If not, go back and finish watching now so you can tell me which one was your favorite. The Precision Base Plate is recommended with intricate dies.
