Snowflakes in Wood

The snow started to fall this afternoon! It's very pretty when I can sit in my craft room, watch it collect on the truck in the driveway and don't have to leave the house. Have you had your first snow storm of this season? Days like today was my inspiration when stamping the snowflakes onto the wood design paper from the In Good Taste designer series paper. The snowflakes are from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set, stamped using Versamark ink and heat set with Whisper White embossing powder. 

The first time I embossed was at a Team Christmas shoe box swap at my upline's home east of Winnipeg a few months after becoming a demonstrator the first time 13 years ago. One of the ladies on the team had a card for us to create and it had heat embossing. I knew there had to be a way to get embossed sentiments or images onto cards but had no idea how to do it! It was so easy!! Stamp the image using clear Versamark ink onto your piece of paper (cardstock or designer series paper). Versamark ink is a sticky clear ink. Next sprinkle the colour of your choice over the stamped image. The embossing powder will stick to the Versamark ink. Next use a Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder, but be careful that you don't heat your fingers or overheat the embossing powder. I like to hold my project at different angles to make sure I melted all the embossing powder. You can always go back and reheat the portion that didn't get enough heat the first time. Suggestion when embossing large sections like the card front on this card, stamp then emboss in sections. With the clear ink it can be hard to see where you've stamped already. I like to stamp a few times then heat set with embossing powder then repeat until I have the desired look.
