heat embossing - oh how i missed you!

I'm back home in Germany after a couple months with my folks in MI and I missed you all!
And I missed my heat embossing tool ;)

So the first card produced was purely heat embossed with a new-to-me set that jumped into my suitcase, Avery Elle's Circle It.

Ran over to the AEIU Challenge site and saw that this month's challenge is to use a non-white cardbase. OK, grabbed kraft.

Then I pulled out some embossing powders that struck my fancy - turquoise, silver, purple and lilac - and did some multicolored heat embossing. You know the trick. Pour the first color on, tap off and rebottle the excess, pour the next color, etc.

And since I used three stamps from the set, I'm joining the fun at Simon Says Monday Challenge.

And I'm too late to the party, but joining the big NBUS hoopla in spirit.  "Celebrate!" Miss Darnell cuz you pulled off one heckuva party.  Again! 

See ya'll soon!


  1. Welcome back! Schön, dass du wieder da bist, Maria. I love the soft colors on the kraft background. Great card to start with.

  2. Welcome home Maria and yes when we are away from our own supplies and craft room things are missed. Your card is gorgeous!

  3. Welcome home, Maria, and happy anniversary (not sure of the exact date)! I missed you, too! You and your lonely heat gun did a sensational job getting back together for this beautiful card using your NBUS!! Hugs, Darnell (Oh, I just scrolled back up to have another look and saw the ending! Thank you so much for the shoutout, my friend! I could feel that you were with me in spirit!! Mwah!)

  4. Welcome back! So glad you got back with your heat gun - the results are fabulous! Love the colours you chose and they go so well on the Kraft. Xx

  5. Welcome back! Oh, how I love the colours together that you embossed the circles on this celebratory card!

  6. I'll bet you're glad to be back home and sleeping in your own bed, and hanging in your craft space more importantly! What a great way to burst back into blogland! Love this multicolored-heat-embossed-brand-spankin'-new-stamp-set-all-on-kraft-card! Whew!! Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely creations!! Bev

  7. Welcome home, Maria ... lovely to have you reunited with your heat gun! What fabulous splashes of vibrant colour ... think your card's celebrating your return home too! Hugs, Anita :)

  8. Welcome back, Maria! I bet you're so happy to be reunited with all your stash :) Love the multi-coloured embossing on kraft. The turquoise is gorgeous!

  9. WOW! This made me want to run for my own heat tool! I really love your use of dots here and the way that you made them different colors. They blend so beautifully in an ombre type of look. This is stunning and if I got this card in the mail, I'd be in awe of what some people can do with a heat tool! Great job on this and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!


Go ahead... make my day!
