I seriously couldn't make up my mind for this week's challenge on The Friday Mashup. It is a fun challenge, one that I'm sure I'll keep thinking of things to make that fulfill this mashup!
Speaking of the mashup... here are the dets...
1. Make a project featuring "Heat Embossing."
2. Or make a "Thank You (Grateful)" project.
3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Thank you project using Heat Embossing."
I have recently been making some holiday gifts for a craft sale that I am attending. I made a notepad holder with embossed butterflies with oranges and yellows. They came out so good that even my husband was impressed!
So for this challenge, I decided to make the embossed butterflies (using the God's Beauty stamp set-retired). I used black embossing powder and stamped on white paper. Then I used my sponge daubers and inked in the bottom part of the butterfly with Daffodil Delight. Then on the top part of the butterfly, I sponged in some Pacific Point. Then I cut out each butterfly and popped each one of them up using stampin' dimensionals. I also colored in a few dots along the edges of the butterflies using a white gel pen. I put them on a layer of white, used black grosgrain ribbon, and stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point (the sentiment is from Day of Gratitude). All of that is on a base of Pacific Point.
They almost look real, don't they?
Thanks for looking...
