Thursday Blast From the Past Challenge - 7/1/10 Heat Embossing in Colors

Happy Day!!!

Can't wait for Thursdays and my Blast from the Past Challenge. Lovin doing this each week and seeing your gorgeous projects! How about those buttons last week…amazing how something so simple jazzes up any project. Thanks so much everyone for playing and parting with those buttons!

This week it's Heat Embossing !! Everybody heat embosses, right!!! But if you're a newbie (and we all were), pop over and learn this technique...just click on above link or from over on the won't be sorry!

This week the twist is to emboss in different colors of ink or embossing powders, but if you only have black pigment ink and clear embossing powder or you're new at this... then ok, but really hoping to see some different colors (taking advantage of gleaning as many secrets or tips from you while I can LOL)


This card is done with one of the new July Releases. Soon to be's called Pretty as a Peacock and was created by the super talented Asela Hopkins. I heat embossed my peacock with Vivid’s Ultramarine and clear embossing powder. The gold cardstock from GKD was tough to photo - it's truly a gorgeous gold. Base cardstock and mat is GKD's In the Navy and the blue/green dp is from GKD's digi section Wings of Hope created by Theresa Momber (I just changed the color), and image is colored with Copics: B69, BG18, 49 and Y28.

Ok, get your heat guns going….on your mark – get set – go!!!
Can’t wait to see what you heat up (-:

have a blessed week,

Gee, Linda, I just heat embossed my button card! Good thing I LOVE to heat emboss!!! And I love your card too!!!!!
Absolutley gorgeous card, Linda! Challenge will be fun!
Beautiful job, Linda!
Beautiful card Linda, I can't wait to try embossing in different colours. I have only ever embossed with one colour.
Ok, so mine is not all that exciting because I embossed with brown. But brown technically is a color, teehee!
Thanks for the challenge Linda. Your card is gorgeous!
Hi Linda- I dug out my purple amethyst embossing powder for this one, although I had trouble getting it to show up in the pic. I used it for the BG. You can see my card here.
You are a delight, and your cards are beautiful too! Love reading and getting inspired by your challenges. Your energy and ideas are endless!
Linda, running late again, but I did get a card made for your challenge. Looking forward to next week.
