Time to Celebrate with Some Embossing Fun

Papercraft's Color Inspiration #6 got me motivated to do this card for my nephew who has a birthday next month.

Making one nephew a rocking card like this had to be matched somehow.  

Thank you Jess Witty for this idea....WOWzers!

Thank you ESPECIALLY for reminding us to heat from UNDER -


when doing this technique. I am such a newbie, that I would have blown embossing powder ALL OVER my den had she not warned me.  

You sprinkle embossing powders of various colors.  I varied the embossing powders in the image from ODBD TIME and did it the old fashioned way with Versamark Ink.  That is when it hit me to try Jess' way.

I stuck with the colors from Paper Craft's Choice.

Mark's Finest Papers has a Sparkle Challenge.  Hence, the red sparkly embossing powder.

Don't forget ODBD's Anything Goes challenge is this week.

Thank you for peeking in and have a wonderful weekend and July 4th! ;)
Info:  ODBD TIME, Ellison Hello Kitty Frame, Spellbinders Classic Circles, embossing powders: white, black, glitter red, Brilliance red Ink, Versamark Ink, Cuttlebug folder, Scor Pal for blue circle


  1. This is fun!! Love the effect that you created there!! Ha ha, I would have also blown from above with this, but I could just make it go wrong blowing from underneath as well, ha ha, so maybe this is just not my technique! ;-) Bit your result is amazing!!!
    Hugs, Wendy
