Moon Party!

While in the Viva Las Vegastamps! store I found this wonderful stamp
"Moon Party"
item number 2265 which is 4 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Above is my very well love and used stamp! I love the versatility of this stamp. Here I have decided to use it for Christmas....but I have thought about how great it would be for New Years, Birthdays, Party invitations....the uses go on and on.


Since VLVS now carries Ecoartboard, Tsukineko embossing stamp pads and Miracle tape I decide to combine them in these combination cards. I have used my Jewelry making ideas and have incorporated them into cards.

1. Rubber stamp on your card with stayzon ink (any color for your outline)

2. Choose the area you want to focus on and rubber stamp that onto you
ecoartboard before heating it. I apply black Sharpie marker to all sides of

3. Color in your designs with matching colors so that they appears to be jumping
right out of your design. On this card I use faber Castel water color pencils

4. I covered the entire board with Tsukineko embossing stamp pad by patting it on... rubbing
could distort your design. On the Kraft colored board I used an old Versamark
pad that had been used on a previous project incorrectly and had a large
area that was now brown in color which I used to add the brown color to the
moon in the first card.

5. When the embossing was still wet I covered the entire piece with a heavy
layer of VLVS! Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder.  I heated the powder with a heat gun, and repeated this process several times to get a heavy, smooth, glaze over the top.

These pieces could easily be converted to jewelry pieces.

5. With the designs on I cut the card stock the sizes I needed. I used embossed
Bazill papers for the backgrounds. Adhering the original stamped design on to the card stock and

after lining up the ecoartboard with the design I adhered it down. (Miracle tape works great for this).

Remember these supplies are all available at Miracle tape, ecoartboard, Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder and Embossing pads (Tsukineko embossing stamp pad)
