FM31 With Gratitude

Hi Stampers! 

WooHoo!!  This month I have the privilege of being a Guest Designer for the Friday Mashup!

What a honor to work with such a talented team of Designers and I hope you will take the time to visit the site to see each of their beautiful creations.

So here’s the FM31 Gratitude "Mashup" Challenge:
1.             Make a project featuring "Heat Embossing".
2.            Or Make a "Thank You (Grateful)" project.  
3.            Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Thank You Project using Heat Embossing".

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Top Note Bigz ™ Die to cut a piece of Early Espresso and emboss it with the Herringbone Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. 

Emboss a piece of the Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and adhere the Early Espresso Top Note to the Mocha Morning layer.  Adhere this to a layer of Early Espresso.

De-static a piece of More Mustard with the Embossing Buddy® and stamp the leaf images with Versamark™ ink.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.   Carefully cut out the leaves around the embossed lines.

Also heat emboss the sentiment with the Gold EP onto Whisper White and dry emboss with the Big Shot™ and the Decorative Oval Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. 

Layer the sentiment and leaves onto the Top Note/DSP layer, adhere the gold satin ribbon bow (I have a "ton" of this luscious ribbon in my stash and just had to use it) and mount onto Whisper White and More Mustard to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Autumn Splendor, Day of Gratitude

 Ink: Versamark™

Cardstock:  Whisper White, More Mustard, Early Espresso, Mocha Morning DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Top Note Bigz™ Die, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Herringbone, Square Lattice, Decorative Oval Frame, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder, 1 ½” Gold Satin Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks again for your visit and I am so grateful for all of you!  As you can see, I decided to "Mash It Up" and hope you will join us too!
