My 1st heat embossing.


Hi everyone :)

I had to stock up on coloured paper yesterday so I went to papermill.  I was so sad when I got there as they were closing down :(  BUT they had 50% off EVERYTHING!!!  Now, there was not a lot left, not many card colours but for £2.50 a box and the box was bigger than the usuall ones, I got one! and then I saw a heat gun half price at £10!  I had to get it and today I went to my local craft store and they had 3 bottles of embossing powder for £1 each, gold, silver and blue so I got them :)  I've been having fun with it!!
Here is my card today
 

I heat embossed the butterflies and sentiment.
I used a piece of design paper to cut a scallop circle out to put the image on and just added some buttons.  I thought the background paper was enough to leave it this simple!

I am entering this for:

Cupcake Craft Challenges - Keep it simple
Creative Belli challenges - butterflies or dragonflies!
Instyle Stamps - The theme is green and st patricks.  I know my sentiment isn't st patricks, I forgot about the sentiment and went with a stamp I have.  I hope this is ok.
Simon Says - It's a recipe.  I made this and then re-read the recipe!  Will my 3 buttons be ok?
A spoon full of sugar - Spring

Hi Cheryl, just popped by to tell you I'm doing a tutorial on the envelope/box and aim to post it on Sunday. I bought a couple of multi-coloured packs at the NEC exhibition last November, but there were some foul colours in them I can tell you!! No name on them so I don't know who they were by. I can't get anything here in Germany and I can't find packs on the internet, only singles. I use bazzill basic and it doesn't have to be white, it could co-ordinate with a card. Sorry I can't be of more help on this one, if you find packs anywhere please let me know.

Hi Cheryl - me again, just had a brainwave, they don't happen often - but here you go - The Paper Mill Shop, if you don't have one near you they do take orders and delivery. Hope this helps.
