Stampendous and Deflecto Finale Hop

Welcome back to the finale blog hop with Deflecto Craft and their design team. We have been hopping all week long and if you are just now popping in then you may want to go over to the Stampendous blog to see all the links from this week, because there are prizes!!! Yep, comment to win one of three Stampendous prize package or one of the three Deflecto cupcake display.

Today's project is a simple looking one and it's really easy to do, but it makes anything look a million dollars. Here's how I did it.

I started out embossing the fronts of each container with a stamp that was the perfect width! I stamped Cling Decorative Border Stamp  Versamark Watermark ink with Detail Clear Embossing Powder.

Once that was done, I taped down the sides of each container. There was a natural curve that the shadow gave me a line for a guide.

I painted the container fronts with DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish paint in Treasure and set it in front of a fan to dry completely.

The next step was to brush on DecoArt Americana Walnut Finish Gel Stain. Once it's brush on, it's time to rub off. I used a paper towel.

Here is the completed piece.

And a detail of the embossed border. What would you do with the lids? I'm still wondering what to do. I was thinking about silver?

That's it for me. Now it's time to go to Pam Bray's blog. Here is a list of the complete hop today in case you get lost. :)

  1. WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! I absolutely adore this! I would be afraid to heat emboss these but now that I know you can I will DEFINITELY be doing something similar when I get one of these!! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! it!

    1. Just keep the heat tool moving and you should be okay!

  2. So pretty! I love the embossing under the paint. That looks so cool. Silver, Gold and Copper all look amazing with turquoise.

  3. Lovely work! This
    is a wonderful way
    to decorate them.

  4. Love the idea of embossing the fronts.
    I like the tops colored.
    I've been looking for a canister but
    all I've seen have black lids. Using
    paper would be a good way to embellish
    those - or maybe white embossing powder.
    Getting more ideas as I go along.
    thanks for sharing.

  5. For your lids use ranger alcohol inks in a turquoise and a metallic gold or silver. That will complete your containers. They are pretty!

  6. Awesomeness that's what this is. I would never have thought you could heat emboss this like you did. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

  7. Beautiful and thanks for sharing this wonderful technique.

  8. cool how you colored the frons. great style.

  9. Yes, silver will not fight with the two colors already painted!

  10. I love this!! You made it look almost ceramic with the embossing and the paint. If it were me, I think I would have to do the lids with the same colors. Very creative!
