Sneak Peek of Second April Kit ... Coming Soon!

A sneak peek of the second kit to be released in April by The Craftz Boutique. A difficult kit to photograph due to being pale but as always it is much prettier in person - the Stampendous Frantage which was used on areas in this kit was the first time I have used this and it is so pretty when the light is shining on it! It will definitely be featuring on more of my layouts!

The Frantage embossing powder gives a beautiful vintage finish - it features gold particles and glitter as well as the colour chosen and can be used on paper and embellishments. 

When applying the Frantage embossing enamel, we simply sprinkled this over our page where we wanted it (no need to use an ink pad for it to adhere to). We then heated this with our heat gun from underneath the layout/picture for a while so that the embossing enamel melted slightly - enough to adhere slightly to the page. We then heated this from above the layout as you would normally do with embossing powders. By heating this from the underneath side first simply stops the powder from moving around and off the page due to the heat gun. 
We also applied the Frantage to our paper flowers - we simply sprinkled the powder over the petals and heated from high above to stop the powder dispersing off the flowers.

Frantage with the lace and chipboard: We inked our lace and chipboard first with the Ranger Ink Embossing Pad, sprinkled the Frantage and heated in a similar way to any embossing powder.

  1. Oh these are absolutely GORGEOUS. I cannot wait for them to come onto the website. Which Frantage kit did you use as I'll want to order at least one of these too?

  2. Hi, Thank you very much for your comments. These will be available on the website shortly :) The Frantage used was a pot of 'Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel' - alternatively the Shabby Green would also work really well with these papers.
