Thoughts and Prayers - Heat Embossing on Vellum
I've been using the stamp set Thoughts and Prayers for a few years now and I still love it! This card shows heating embossing on vellum and our vellum card stock is perfect for heat embossing! It stays flat with no warping.
Stampin' Up!'s new foam stamp pads are nice and juicy, so the ink stays wet long enough to add the embossing powder. On this butterfly from Papillon Potpourri I used Midnight Muse and clear embossing powder. It was punched out with the Elegant Butterfly punch.
The background was made with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and highlighted with a sponge dauber and some Midnight Muse ink.
Here are the deets for the current 2012 - 2013 catalogue. All items except the Lacey Brocade embossing folder will be carried over into the new catalogue.
