I chose to use the Chicken Run set for my card.  I love the rooster silhouette and there are a lot of great sentiments.

The card background was run through an embossing folder and layered on black and the red card base.  A piece of cardstock was covered with Versamark Ink and the new Super Thick Black embossing powder and heated from beneath to create a thick glossy black.  While still hot it was pressed onto the embossing folder, then cut into three strips and added to the card front, lining up with the embossed design.


The sentiment was embossed in White Detail EP on a black oval and popped up on a layer covered with the new Checkers embossing powder.  I love how this mix of colors looks on the card.


The rooster is heat embossed with Black Detail embossing powder and die cut with Spellbinders’ Labels 8.  The Checkers embossing powder was sprinkled on top and heated from the bottom.  This was layered on a slightly larger die cut edged with the new Super Thick Black embossing powder.

I think this new stamp set and these new embossing powders make a great combo.

I hope you have enjoyed this reveal hop.  Your last stop is Eret.  Her project is worth the wait!!

This is VERY cool! I love your colors and layout. Such a strong graphic feel! This would be enjoyed be either gender - which is cool because we don't see a lot of sparkle on guy cards. Even guys need a little sparkle in their lives.
