I just love heat embossing. It was one of the first stamping techniques I learned 15 years ago when I first started stamping. I didn't have a heat gun back then but the lady at the stamp shop told me I could use an iron on the dry iron setting and hold the back of the card up to it to heat the embossing powder. I of course since have gotten a heat gun but I remember those days fondly. This card is created with the Delicate Doilies and Loving Thoughts stamp sets. First, I made a card out of Whisper White card stock (finished Size 4.25 x 5.5 inches) and adhered a black panel (4 x 5.25) and then a Melon Mambo panel (3.75 x 5) I then stamped the smaller doilies randomly on Basic Black card stock and then stamped the sentiment with white ink and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder taking care not to get the embossing powder on the white doilies. When I heated the white embossing powder, I heat set the white doilies so they would not be wet and grab the Melon Mambo embossing powder I was putting on the larger doilies. I then stamped the larger doily twice with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Melon Mambo embossing powder. Added the Basic Rhinestones and attached the image panel to the card with Stamping Dimensionals. Quick and easy card but the black with the pink creates drama.
