Day 25 - Nuvo Mousse Rub on Embossing

Today is day 25 of the 30 Days of Christmas, and today I am introducing a fun new product into the Technique Junkies store: Nuvo Mousse Embellishment.

These little jars of mousse are amazing. They feel like silk when touched, apply beautifully, and dry very fast. I haven't ever used anything like them! They can be applied with a spatula through stencils, directly onto the paper, rubbed into texture, painted on, and so many other ways.

Today I am rubbing them over the texture of embossed card stock to add shimmer to my Christmas Card creation.

While you are checking out the new NUVO Mousse colorsonline, don't forget that ALL stamps in the Christmas category are 25% off through December 14th.  Time is running out on this offer! Simply place any Christmas stamp in your shopping cart and the 25% discount will be automatically applied to your purchase. No coupon codes required.

Our first look uses Nuvo Mousse in Pretty Platinum over an embossed grey background.

Add texture to your card stock with an embossing folder. Then simply place your finger into the Mousse -- pick some up with your fingertip. It has a soft, silky texture.
 Then simply rub the Mousse lightly over the texture portion of the card stock. 
 To finish my card, I used one of the sentiments from the Christmas Ornaments Trio Set,and layered it over black and red sparkly card stock.

The second piece uses the Indian Gold Mousse over textured snowflakes, but this time, I used Art Anthology Colorations sprays on the background:

I simply used three Colorations sprays over the background: Siesta Key, Plush and Patience. Once dry, I added embossed texture and used my fingertips to apply the Indian Gold Mousse to the raised areas.

 To finish this card, I used the Joyeux Noel sentiment over layers of snowflakes. Note that the white centers of the snowflakes use the white Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I hope you were inspired today.Make sure to take advantage of the sale before it runs out!
