Cool 2 Cast Blog Hop

Hi everyone, how is your week going so far? Who believes it is November already? Are you hard at work on your Christmas projects? I have made a good start this year and I want to share one with you this today.

I was given some fabulous product to work with this week that I had not previously had the chance to work with- Cool2Cast Casting Medium. I have to say that this stuff is pretty cool!

Tiffany Windsor teamed up with Bella Crafts Quarterly to publish a new eBook Cool2Cast and to celebrate we are having a book review blog hop! Yippee! To see all the details on the book, and find all the wonderful people participating in the blog hop check out Cool2Create here.

I had a pretty good time playing with the medium and I pulled some things from my stash to use as my mold. Who remembers those super cool things we all had to have (but never used) from Ranger that went with the glass slides from like 10 years ago???
These thing,, remember these things? And I bought every single kind they made, because they were so unbelievably cool and I was going to use them in so many ways. Yeah, right. Still UN-opened packages in the box of "stuff" on the shelf.
Don't judge- you know you bought some too.

Anyway, I thought these would be amazing molds.
I was right, so my purchase was not a waste after all (which is exactly what I am going to tell the hubs tomorrow). The Cool2Cast medium poured right in and set beautifully. Because these little things are pretty flexible, they popped right out.

I pulled out a mini canvas and some Gelatos® while I was waiting on the molds to set up. When they were completely dry, I inked one with Adirondack ink as recommended, stamped on top with StazOn, then gave it a spritz of Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine- because that stuff is like Ranch dressing and everything is better with a little bit on it.
I added a little bit of paper from the new Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane line, and some embellies from my Christmas bucket. DONE!

I hope you give this medium a try- because it is awesome! I can't wait to play with it again. Be sure to hop on over to Cool2Create to play along with the blog hop- there is an amazing prize up for grabs!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
