PTI Make it Monday #160 ~ Heat embossing tips for die-cuts and two step stamps


This is a unique way to use die cuts with heat embossing, you gotta try it.
Watch video tutorial by Erin HERE!

My take.....



I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder for the background flowers and then add the green flower and flower center with PTI ripe avocado ink on vellum paper with clear embossing powder

The stamp set with coordinating dies I used is Bold Bouquet Anniversary stamp set



with its matching die collection






oops .... I think I need to change my B plate for my cuttlerbug, see the green vellum flower look kind of dirty around the edges



I used PTI leafy vine border die  at the bottom of the card











Thanks for stopping by......

Neat technique and the "dirty" edges really just make it look a little shabby chic!

Oooh, what a cool looking technique this is! LOVE it, Kirsty! I need to check out the tutorial. :) I love the soft green and white on white color palette you used. Fun die cut edge at the bottom, and the simple strip of patterned paper at the top set it all off perfectly.
By the way, a little tip for your cutting plate.....you can go ahead and give it a good scrubbie dubbie with soap and water to clean it off..
