Embossed Poppies

It has been awhile since I used my heat tool and did some embossing so I thought it was about time to dust it off and use it lol. The challenge on SCS and Crafty Ann's was embossing so that gave me the final nudge.

I used a couple of new stamp sets released from Sweet N Sassy stamps for my card called Amazing Grace (on 6/27) and Poppies and Greetings. I embossed the scripture verse with gold ep onto cryogen white (which is on sale at Paper Temptress) and then sponged turquoise ink around it while still in the labels die. I then used a gold paint pen to edge around the shape to further accent it. This was adhered to a turquoise oval and then onto a scalloped gold oval and then finally onto a gold fancy tag that I cut in half. I stamped 3 poppies and also embossed them with gold before cutting them out and adhering around my scripture verse. The card base is the super yummy candido incandescent from Paper Temptress which is an ivory color with a touch of texture and gold shimmer- love it! The color combo for the Creative Inspirations challenge to use turquoise, gold and cream so that is why I used these colors on my card. My layout is the sweet stop sketch for the week and I kept the layers fairly minimal for me with this card.

This is absolutely beautiful Janette and your heat embossing is perfect. It isn't easy to heat emboss wording even with fine detail powder but you have got it spot on. Thank you for sharing this lovely creation with us at Crafty Ann's
