Throwback Thursday: Glitter Embossing

Here is our Throwback Thursday Project...

Hey kids!  It's Cindy for the Scrapbook Blessings Club blog today and I've got a fun glitter embossing technique to share with you.

TiP:  Be sure and close your Versamark pad before applying the embossing powder.

Okay, grab the following supplies and let's get started :-)
Versamark pad
Embossing Tinsel (or you can use embossing pwd and glitter)
Heat tool
embossing folder
baby wipe

1-open the embossing folder and generously apply Versamark to one side  (I used the raised side and got glitter coverage on the background of the embossed image)

2- put your cardstock inside the embossing folder and run it through your Cuttlebug

3- apply your embossing tinsel (this has glitter right in it)  or you can mix embossing powder with glitter about half and half ...should look like the photo below:
I started with a white piece of cardstock.  As you can see I missed a little spot with the Versamark...oops.

4- put excess embossing pwd back into the container.  Clean your embossing folder with a baby wipe.
5- heat the embossing tinsel/pwd/glitter with your Heat tool until it turns darker and starts to sparkle.

And here is the card I created with this glitter embossed background:

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
