Paper Craft Tips & Tricks share

Hi everyone,

First I just want to say a big 'thank you' for all your support and kind works with my WCMD win! You are all such an encouragement to me. Thank you!

Secondly, I wanted to share a card I have published in Paper Crafts Tips and Tricks special issue. This was such a fun issue to work on and really stretched my creativity! I really enjoyed the whole process, from submitting ideas, to working on the technique squares (for the heat embossing section), 2 heat embossed cards, and a few other cards for other sections of the magazine. And once I got my hands on this issue? Wow! So full of get ideas!

Here's one of my heat embossed cards:

I heat embossed the center panel multiple times and while the embossing powder was still hot I pressed the butterfly into it for a number of seconds to make the impression.

For my heat embossed projects in this issue I used American Crafts Zing! embossing powders. I've also heard good things about the Wow! powders but have yet to try them myself.

A couple of my cards from other sections of this issue were up on the Paper Crafts Connection blog a couple weeks ago and you see can see them HERE and HERE

Thanks so much for stopping by!
