You're Absolutely Amazing Blog Hop


Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Fun Ways to Use Your Stampin’ Up! Products” where we show our favorite product tips. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I am hopping along today to talk about heat embossing. I love to grab my heat tool and emboss but mostly I do it with sentiments like I did on the card above. Here I stamped the sentiment from Color & Contour stamp set in VersaMark ink and used my white emboss powder and heat tool to emboss on the stitched oval die cut from Evening Evergreen card stock. But I knew as soon as I saw the Daisy Garden background stamp, I would want to heat emboss it for an awesome background to my cards. I could have used the white emboss powder on a piece of the Pale Papaya card stock and it would have been fabulous.  However, I love to sponge and use the bending brushes so I grabbed my clear emboss powder and heat embossed it on the white card stock.  Yes, it is hard to see when embossing clear on white or white on white.  Have good lighting and watch for it to look wet as it heats. 

Above you can see the blending over the image in Pale Papaya ink and those daisies suddenly pops off the page. I love the blending and it gives it a different feel. Sometimes we may have a color in the ink but not the card stock. We just make our own!

Here is another photo in a different light. To finished the card, I added the background to a Evening Evergreen base after I ran the same color 3/8" open weave ribbon around and popped up my sentiment. I finished it off with a few Evening Evergreen jewels for some bling. 

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on July 14th for “Wonderful Cards from the Garden” when our Design Team creates a project with flowers or scenes from the garden. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, have fun in your craft space.
