My Creative Time--Try Me Tuesday

For my PDE Linky Party #12 post, please scroll down one.

Happy Tuesday!!

Today over at the My Creative Blog, it is Try Me Tuesday!
Today we are showing you projects that show the technique called Cluster Stamping.
It's basically where you heat emboss an image or sentiment and then stamp directly over that to completely cover it. Once your stamping is done, you gently wipe away the ink that is on top of the embossing to reveal your image or sentiment.

Here is the card that I created using this technique:

To create my card, I stamped the Happy Birthday found on the Polka Dot Surprise stamp set with some versamark ink and then heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. I then took one of the circular shapes from the Build A Pretty Flower stamp set and stamped it randomly onto my white cardstock using different colors of ink. After I wiped off the extra ink that was laying on top of my sentiment, I added some ribbon to the corners and added a few iridescent sequins and voila!! Really simple card but the technique makes quite an impact!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
For more inspiration on this pretty cool technique, be sure to head over to the My Creative Time blog to see what Emma and my awesome DT sisters created :)

I hope you have a great crafty day!
