Hi peeps! Happy Sunday, and happy March! I am glad February is over....it was a long, boring month to me, LOL! It's time for another Paper Players challenge, and Anne Marie has an awesome challenge for us...Heat Embossing! Woohoo! Who doesn't remember that first time they saw embossing powder magically melt into a fabulous shiny image?! So cool!
This was a perfect challenge for me, as I had this large flower from Beautiful Day already heat-embossed in Gold embossing powder on Thick White cardstock, but decided against using it on my original project! I paired it with some Golden Honey Specialty DSP and some Gold Foil for my card today:
I also embossed the Gold Foil with the speckle image from Gallery Grunge...(it looks a wee bit like an animal print to me, I am going to have to ink it up and experiment with it some more!!), and I also embossed the sentiment with from Honey Bee:
It's hard to see, but there is some gold thread behind the image and sentiment as well! I mounted everything on a white card base and left the inside blank, ready for an occasion as I need it! I also used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch, but I was going from memory, and I put the sentiment in the wrong spot!! Duh!
Anyway, I hope you'll get out your heat gun and your embossing powders and get to work for our Paper Players challenge this week! Be sure to hop over to the Paper Players blog and see what the DT created...then share yours with us too!
Cassidy earned another belt this week! (Sorry the pix aren't real clear)
