Memory Glass & Stampbord

Supplies needed: Stampbord, co-ordinating size memory glass, alcohol inks, blending solution, applicator, embossing powders, clear embossing pad / pen, heat tool, craft sheet, super sticky red line tape, permanent ink pad, stamp of choice



Apply three colours of alcohol ink to the applicator


Apply sparingly to your stampbord


Use your blending solution and more colour if required to create your desired background colour


Stick your super sticky double sided red tape to the edges of the memory glass


Cover all 4 edges


Dip 2 sides into embossing powder, hold with tweezers and blast with heat tool


Do the same to the other 2 sides


When cooled down, cover the edges you've just heat embossed with the clear embossing ink


Apply another coat of embossing powder in the same colour and heat again. Apply a further coat of clear embossing powder


Ink up your stamp


Stamp your image on the memory glass


Attach the memory glass to the stampbord (I used diamond glaze around the edges)
