Stampbord Challenge project

Wow May is passing so fast, here is a stampbord project from Katy Leitch. I was really pleased that Katy agreed to join us this month. Here is just a first post from her lots more to come.

UTEE Pendant

As Stampbord is so thick and sturdy it makes a great base for UTEE – it won’t buckle or go out of shape no matter how your heat it!
1 Remove the corners of a Stampbord piece with sharp scissors (Tim Holtz scissors are ideal). Triple emboss with blue UTEE, then gold, then blue.
2 Stamp the Texture Squares image into the molten UTEE with black ink. Reheat the UTEE and stamp into it again, while still molten, this time using Versamark or other clear embossing ink. You can see the pattern of black lines underneath the raised pattern which I think looks cool!
3 Highlight the raised areas with gilding wax. Punch a hole and finish the Stampbord piece with a spacer bead and chain.

If you want to try this yourself you can find these essentials on the Oak House studio website
