Embossed Resist Hearts


Hi everyone, I watched a Jennifer McGuire video on heat embossing techniques and towards the end she created a card from the scrap offcuts she had trimmed.
I needed no encouragement to start hoarding offcuts from other projects lol!!

After I created this card, I saved the offcuts and diecut these hearts from them.
I double layered the heart frame and did add a white layer of hearts under the coloured layer for dimension.
The original card was made using a background stamp, versamark ink and clear embossing powder.
Then sprinkling on Lindy's magicals and spritzing with lots of water.
I love all of the texture that the embossing gives to the hearts.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

This is the perfect die-cut for using those resist off-cuts, Cathy. The card is beautiful! xx

This heart die looks great with all the different coloured scraps from the card featuring the background with the Magicals, and would work well with any pieces of patterned paper or inked offcuts so a great die to have and a beautiful finished card Cathy. x
