52 Weeks of Wonder

"Slick, shiny, non-porous surfaces can be tricky to stamp on—traditional inks may not want to take. You have to have the right kinds of ink or use the right technique to make them work. Today we are going to explore two easy different options beginning with StazOn®. StazOn® ink is specially formulated for stamping on non-porous and semi-porous surfaces such as metal, plastic, acrylic, cellophane, aluminum foil, leather and even some glass surfaces.

Adding embossing to your embellishments on your project is an exciting technique. Many of the embellishments we use in crafting are non-porous, and stamping great elements onto them can add flair and personalization to even the most basic embellishment.

The embossing technique can be applied on a much grander scale. This project started with some great photos of our Art Director Eric Clegg and his family. Each of the photos has been cropped and mounted on the back of My Acrylix blocks. (Yes, you heard me, blocks! Isn’t this a fabulous way to create a unique and durable photo display?) These projects were easy to create and I’m sure it will be a treasured memento for a long time."
