Throwback Thursday's with Sweet Stamp Shop- Chemistry

Welcome back to another Throwback Thursday! I announced the winner for last weeks Throwback Thursday. You can check it our HERE to see if you won! :)

But I am back with this super fun set "Chemistry". Even if you are not a science type kind of guy this set is so fun to play with along with all the GREAT sentiments included in it. AND...This set will be on sale for only $8 for one day only so don't wait to pick one up!

Check it out:


 I played around with a couple ideas and this week nothing was coming together...Then I had an aaah HA moment. I loved what Michelle Duffy did on her layout this past week with the vellum overlay! If you missed that post you can check it out HERE. I LOVE Love love vellum so I wanted to try out that technique since the rest of what I kept trying to do was such a flop.

Here is my card:

 I love how the vellum really tamed down my image and really allowed me to POP the rest of my elements away from it. AND, as you will notice, I used the Mini Periodic Table. But that stamp comes in a square so I tapped off the ones I did not want ink on and then stamped them all individually in a row. I then used my Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel from Stampendous on  a metal frame that was originally green and I embossed to better match. (if you have never done this before PLEASE BE CAREFUL YOUR METAL WILL BE VERY HOT!!!!!!) This is by far one of my favorite crafting techniques. You can practically emboss anything you can get the powder to stick too. I love embossing my picture frames. I will use multiple colors which gives it a marbled distressed kind of a look. It really creates an awesome effect.
I just loved the sentiment "You have a heart of gold"  and I coincidentally had gold heart pins from My Minds Eye that I just recently picked up from my work!!! I attached a green chevron ribbon to add an extra little pop and voila!  Fun HUH???

Don't worry I didn' stop there. I just loved the new Zombie. set and the boy and girl work perfectly for the "you two have all the right Chemistry" sentiment. It was like a match made in heaven. So playful, so fun :)

And of course to keep with the theme, I used vellum for my zombie people.

Here is the additional (NOT a Throwback Set I used today)
