Things are heatin' up...

...with my embossing gun!

I just LOVE watching EP (embossing powder) melt and get all glossy & shiny. Heat embossing is one of my favorite techniques. I made a couple cards today with a set from SU called Just B.



The "B" and flower were stamped with Real Red Craft Ink and embossed with clear ep. The bees wings are sparkly -- 1 is colored with a Clear Spica Pen, the other with a glue pen & glitter.

I have a card to show you tomorrow that has tons of embossing on it! Come back and see :)

Recipe:
Stamps - SU Just B
Paper - Papertrey Ink White CS, SU Black Textured CS, Bazzill Textured CS, Misc Patterned paper from stash
