The challenge this week is "heat-embossing." Really not my go-to technique. At all. I find it messy and I absolutely hate it if it's not cleanly done. When there are extra gold or silver or (even worse) white flecks on the paper? blech. So I mostly (when I do heat-emboss) use clear embossing powder. Wanna see it closer-up?
The kids had fun running their fingers over the stamped images. So did I, truth be told.
ps - did you notice the eggs in my apothecary jar? I stamped PTI's "textstyle II" and "background basics: gingham" onto white tissue paper (y'know, the filler you put into your gift bags) and then modge-podged strips onto some dollar-store plastic eggs. Our crafty spring decor...
stamps: friendship jar spring fillers, tag-its (PTI)
paper: whisper white, certainly celery, baja breeze, pink pirouette, daffodil delight, bashful blue dsp (all SU)
ink: versamark, daffodil delight, early espresso (all SU)
misc: clear embossing powder, scallop edge punch (SU)
Your card is super cute! The "wonky" stitching adds character. ;)ReplyDelete
I agree 100% about the heat embossing, I hate the white flecks. I always forget to try to remove static before I stamp.
Those modge podged eggs are fabulous. what a great idea.
