Using a Chomas Pen Holder with the Silhouette Cameo to Emboss

Hi everyone,
This week just flew by, after getting back from CHA there was so much catching up to do. But I really wanted to create something with my new Chomas Creations pen holder.There are so many cool sketch files in the Silhouette library to choose from, and I found this chevron design. So I loaded up my inkssentials  embossing pen in the holder and gave it a test run. It worked great! After the Sihoulette drew the design on the paper. I quickly covered it with Zing white embossing powder and heated it up. Next I sprayed it with 3 different shades of pink glimmer mist. Here's how it came out! The lines are so consistent and even, the pen never skipped once!

Next I started layering some paper and lace. I was looking in my stash of paper and I found this cupcake paper from last year, I believe its from Basic Grey's nook and pantry Collection. I remembered I had purchased a couple of really cute cupcake designs by Lori Whitlock ( Lori Whitlock #7232 ) from Silhouette and the file I have is 3 different designs and what I really like is you can mix and match the pieces. for example you can take the frosting from one, the wrapper from another and so on. this really give you the opportunity for lots of layers and added dimension.

Speaking of dimension I got an idea...a cool about using  as frosting..yes! love it! Well check it out.. it looks so real doesn't it!

 So I frosted the cupcake with Golden Light Molding Paste and sprayed it with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Sun Sisters and sprinkles some German glitter glass to add a little extra sparkle. I wanted a really glossy cherry for the top of my cupcake so I sprayed the paper cherry die cut with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist 2-Ounce, Red Velvet , dried it and covered it with some UTEE Ranger Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel Clear it's like glass now! I finished the card of with a sweet sentiment that reminds me of a tag from a Hershey Kiss! So fun! Thanks so much for visiting!
