Over at Crafty Cardmakers our challenge to you this time is to use heat embossing on your creation. As our hostess Josephine described it ‘Any technique using heat embossing - stamping or ultra-thick embossing powder or something else I haven't thought of!
We have a fabulous prize on offer from The Stamp Man of some Starburst Stains Pots - Holiday Wreath I am also extending the Design Team call for another fortnight as last time’s challenge was a little bit more specialised and I wanted to give everyone a chance to enter even if recycling had not been there ‘thing’ Please pop by the blog if you are interested, and, of course, to enter the challenge.
So onto my card. I printed out a couple of sheets from the Artylicious Seasons’ Greetings CD in two different sizes and on the smaller one I stamped the gorgeous Baroque Christmas Tree from IndigoBlu, and embossed it with white detail powder. I wonder if anyone makes a truly WHITE powder as this one, in my opinion is more cream than white, especially when compared to the white mat I have under the first layer of paper.
I added a few little presents diecuts that have been in my stash since Adam was a lad! Guilty as charged MeLud, I purchase stuff and hoard it! The oh so lush snowflakes are cut from glitter card with a Memory Box die. I am fast falling in love with these dies, and I bought mine from a seller on Ebay US so got an excellent deal on them.
I’m sitting here nursing a bad back, everyone say Ahhhhh!, which happened when I had to rescue my little Poppikins from a huge brute of a dog that was chasing her down across the park. My back just went pop. About ten minutes later I was chatting to an elderly lady, bemoaning my lot when the monster dog reappeared. She was like Supergran. She bent down and scooped Poppy into the safety of her arms and then starting yelling at Dogzilla and swatting at him ‘go away you brute, leave her alone’. Big up Supergran, thanks for rescuing us because at that stage there was NO WAY I could bend over to grab my dog.
Right back to the business at hand.
