This morning I happened upon the CAS(E) this sketch newest challenge and since I had all of my supplies laid out from my homemade Valentine’s Day card workshop yesterday, it was a snap to put this card together! Plus, it’s a CAS design so I am in my element!
There’s not much time left to get a hold of this You Are Magical stamp set from Amuse Studio’s January Collection. In fact, some of the items are sold out already and I am really hoping they will come back in stock quickly. If you hate to fussy cut you are in luck too because Amuse Studio carries matching dies for most of it’s rubber stamps now. woo hoo!
What rubber stamping supplies do you need to make this card?
This sparkly glitter on here makes me giddy – and the best part is that it’s embossed using Amuse Studio Diamond Embossing powder so it does NOT flake off everywhere. That’s my biggest pet peeve about using glitter – can you imagine not having to worry about glitter sticking every where but where you want it?! ah….
stamps: You Are Magical (January Collection) – this set includes a unicorn!
paper: Sky and Sugar

Tips and Tricks
When I want to use Diamond Embossing powder, it’s typically to cover the entire image. That makes it super easy because you just press your piece face down in a Veramark ink pad and then sprinkle it with the embossing powder. Here’s another super elegant card I made using this same technique.
I recently saw where Julie Ebersole uses a box for heat embossing. I like it because it keeps things contained. I “upped” it one by covering the lid to my envelope box in aluminum foil – that help distribute the heat evenly and warms things up nicely. Don’t you hate burning a piece of paper, or having the embossing powder melt into the paper? I find this helps prevent those two embossing mistakes.
