A Challenge to Try Something New at Heart2Heart

Happy New Year, friend!  With the new year comes new goals, new promises, and hope for the future. If one of your goals is to try something new, then we would love for you to join our first January challenge at Heart2Heart

One of my crafting goals for the new year is to look at my supplies in a new way. Not only will this help me get through my growing crafting stash, but it will also stretch me to find unique ways to use them and share those with you. Today, I have decided to explore a few new approaches to Liquid Glass  and I am going to share with you how I made use of it on my Winder Songbird Card. 

From the photograph it is hard to see where I used Liquid glass. After all, it is a clear, quick drying liquid that is usually used as an adhesive. What people forget is that Liquid Glass is also great at adding a glaze-like glossy accent to your project. On my card, I added some texture to the background paper by drawing some squares onto the pattern and adding little dots to the tips of my snowflakes.

Since the Liquid Glass has very little dry time, I was able to put the rest of this card together quickly using some pine bough Cricut die-cuts that were heat embossed,  a single stamped bird image, and a sentiment that was stamped atop a partial tag. 

Why heat emboss the pine boughs? There are a few reasons.  First, I accidentally cut FIFTY of these in the wrong color of green for some kits, so I inked them in Espresso to change to color. Second, heat embossing adds texture and stiffens thin die-cuts making them easier to bend and mold. 

I hope that today’s project has inspired you to try something new and give Liquid Glass a second look.  If you decide to try something new this week, please share it with us at the Heart2Heart Challenge. We always enjoy seeing your creations and are often inspired by you.
