New Baby Heat Embossing....
So as you all know I love making baby cards.
We have had a few new arrivals in the last couple of months and I was playing with an idea for a DT make - coming soon and thought it would also work for babies.
I stamped the hearts and words using Versamark and covered the panel with white embossing powder and heat embossed it to create a resist.
Using Picked Raspberry distress ink, I washed over the heat embossing and you get the awesome panel that you can see.
The first card was made at the start of December for a November baby and my new Lil Stinker stamp and dies by Neat & Tangled had just arrived, so I really wanted to use them.
I used Zigs to colour the Skunk and used some creative license to make the stripe pink, so she is clearly a girl Skunk..
The sentiment stamps are by Simon Says Stamp and are the handiest set ever for baby cards.
I added the gold strips so that the pink panel stood out a bit more.
The card below is pretty much the same, but I used different heart stamps and a slightly different sentiment.
I love these, they feel very modern and fresh, not at all like normal New Baby cards..
