diy enamel embellishments with the stamp market dies

One of my favorite ways to create with die cuts is to turn them into DIY enamel embellishments! 
I've had a blast creating some DIY enamel embellishments with brand new dies from The Stamp Market and we are having a little blog hop today so I get to show them off to you! (If you are hoping with us, you should be arriving from The Stamp Market blog.)

I've created a quick video to show you my process...

Here are my quick tips for creating DIY enamel embellishments...
  • layer 3 die cuts to provide stability and prevent warping when glossy medium is applied
  • temporarily secure layered die cut to an acrylic block with low-tack tape before applying glossy medium
  • Tonic Nuvo Drops and Ranger Glossy Accents are both great glossy mediums but I find Glossy Accents works better for larger surfaces (less cracking)
  • use craft pick to pull out any air bubbles
  • add glitter (if desired) while glossy medium is wet

Thanks so much for stopping by and please head on over to Thurston Post to see what Rebecca has created! She always knocks my socks off!!!
