As I mentioned yesterday, I was hankering to do some heat embossing. It’s one of my favorite techniques. I actually did two things on this anniversary card that are a little different twist on embossing. Flourishing Phrases was the stamp set I started with. Take a look at my creation. Can you see the two different ways I embossed?

Design Notes for Flourishing Phrases Anniversary card:

Did you see the embossing? I stamped the flowers in Watermelon Wonder ink, using a pad that I had just added reinker to, and then quickly added some Clear Embossing Powder. Then I used the Heat Tool and behold – shiny flower. I did each flower separately. Same process for the leaves. It’s a little addictive. Since I was on an embossing roll, so to speak, I decided to stamp the sentiment in VersaMark and then used Copper Heat Emboss Powder.

The flowers looked like they needed something so I used the Flourish Thinlits dies and some Copper Foil Paper to make the little flowers for the center. Still needed something.  Ah Ha moment. I used VersaMark and some Copper Embossing Powder on the pearls. A little hit from the Heat Tool and you have copper pearls! Cool, right? Here’s a close up on the Pearls.

Supply list for Flourishing Phrases Anniversary card:

Something to note. The Flourishing Phrases stamp set and Flourish Thinlits are currently a bundle. Buy them together and save 10%. If you wait until after May 31, you can still buy both but they are not in a bundle. Act wisely!

 

 

 

I hope you are enjoying a nice weekend. The weather here in lower Delaware is terrific. Makes it a little hard to stay inside and stamp BUT my Paper Pumpkin arrived Friday afternoon so I hear the call. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll show you what’s inside. IT IS SO COOL!
