the midas touch (PTI)


Calendars.  Great inventions.  Blog readers, even better.  Had I not seen the post about the Papertrey June Blog Hop I would have been late to the party.  Again.

Nuff said.  Here's my golden contribution.


TIP:  In case gold embossing isn't midas enough for ya, sprinkle some glitter on top of the embossing powder before you add the heat.  Check out the closeup photo.  Quite the cool effect.

Thanks for hopping by.


Supplies happily ever after:
Paper: Bringmann
Stamps: Rosie Posie, Love Lives Here PTI
Ink: Versamark, Versamagic, Amuse Versafine
Tools: die PTI, corner rounder EKS
Other: gold embossing powder and glitter
