Embossing Challenge

Hello and happy Wednesday to you all!  I am finally starting to feel better after almost a week and a half of having pneumonia.  Recovery is a little on the slow side, but at least I am back to work!

Today at The House That Stamps Built Miriam has challenged us to do some heat embossing.  If you like to heat emboss, then why don't you play along?

For my project I have made a simple valentine's card.  I heat embossed Repeat Impressions' stamp 4903-F Love Post  in clear, then swiped the ink pad over it and wiped the image off so it would show better.  I added another Repeat Impressions image 6103-J Thinking Vertical in black on the left.  I backed it on red and added black ribbon before putting on a plain white card.

Have a great rest of the week, and I hope you play along!


  1. I really like the way that your red turned out - awesome! I'll have to give that a try. I'm glad you're finally feeling better. I hope you're ALL better soon!

  2. Love your vertical sentiment! Lovely job on the "ink swiping" technique.

  3. This is beautiful! The ink swiping looks fantastic!

  4. Stunning card Kendra! I agree...that swiping wrapped this up. Fabulous!!!

  5. Gorgeous card! I love how you've highlighted the image :-) Love 'n' hugs, Mel xx
