I always try to play along with the PTI MIM challenges. The current one is to heat emboss on vellum--something I already like to do. However, I don't remember ever using anything but white & gold, so wanted to try another color. I've also never matted my embossed vellum over printed paper like Melissa did in the video. One of the larger images from PTI Peaceful Poinsettia was embossed with Zing! Rouge powder & the tiny dots in the center (lost the stamp--it went flying as I cleaned it--this morning I found it on the edge of my table!) are gold embossed. I made my own printed paper with the rows of little poinsettias from the same set. They were stamped in Vintage Cream & clear embossed on a scrap of Vintage Cream cardstock. I love the subtle effect. The sentiment from the same set is gold embossed. I made the card last night & wasn't very happy with how it turned out.
This morning it looks OK (my friend Carol won't have to change her "Greta Top 5" list--LOL) but it will go in the mail.
Thought I'd also share how I turned my PTI Blog Hop tags into cards. Enjoy your weekend--I know you're busy.
Edited to Add: I'm also playing along at CAS on Sunday.
