Piccolo Powders

Hi, this is Candy and I am so excited to share a card I made with some brand-new products from Globecraft Memories.

SUPPLIES: Chipboard pieces & Enamel Powders: Piccolo; gems: KaiserCraft; paper: Theresa Collins; sentiment stamp: Impression Obsession

These are from the new Piccolo line. The Piccolo Card Decor pieces are made from compressed, high-quality chipboard and then cut with a laser for small, intricate images. The chipboard is stronger and thinner than traditional chipboard die cuts, making them perfect for both card making and scrapbooking. When combined with the new Piccolo Enamel Powders, the results are spectacular.

Piccolo Enamel Powders are similar to embossing powders, but they go way beyond what any embossing powder ever thought of being. These powders can be heated a little for an interesting texture or heated a lot for a smooth shine. They come in a variety of textures and colors ... I used Brown Stone, Mardi Gras and Enchanted Aubergine in this sample. Just look at the texture and depth of color ...

Isn't it beautiful?

The Enamel Powder Adhesive is applied in a paint dabber, rather than an ink pad like traditional embossing powders. It is quick and much easier to use, too. I love it!

For the butterflies, I heaped the enamel powder on top of the chipboard and heated it from a distance until it warmed up enough to not blow around. Then I moved the heat gun closer and heated until the powder was completely smooth. I love how it bubbled and added such depth.

I used Globecraft Memories new Glastique in a matte finish to adhere all of the parts. You apply the glue, hold it for a few seconds (a little longer when gluing onto an enameled surface) and then let it finish drying. The matte finish doesn't show if you are a sloppy gluer, like me, and it holds extremely well.

You can try out all of these products for yourself and save 25 percent by using this special coupon code: TS25. How great is that!?!
