Heat Embossing was the magic that attracted me to stamping and making cards many years ago
.... so this week the old heat gun has been busy, making for some quick cards
........... here's sample of some I've made
I am also joining in with Maureen and her helpers at Rudolph Days Christmas card challenge.
Happy to report also that I've sent off all my overseas cards... lovely to remember family and friends at this time of year.
Enjoy your weekend... cheers Robyn

This month I sent my Card Chain Challenge card off to Arlene in USA.
I used the sketch, colour palette - blue, pink and silver and friendship theme
I watercoloured Blossom Sprays #5 from STAMPlorations with Distress Inks, trimmed the image and gave it a shiny silver border. Found a pretty blue floral patterned paper in my stash and arrange the pieces to suit the layout and finished off with a stamped sentiment on a die cut circle, border also with shiny silver card.

.... and November is just around the corner...
.... reminder to self that this year cards will need to be sent even earlier with our postal system seemingly going even slower.
My snowman is hand painted with Distress Inks and the trimmed panel added to a maroon card with the sentiment stamped vertically.
My second card is DI blended through a stencil (Kaisercraft - Poinsettia) and finished off with a die cut sentiment in shiny gold card attached to a red card strip.
I am joining in the challenge at Rudolph Days October challenge..
... have a Wonderful weekend, Cheers Robyn

Well after visitors had returned home my head seems to be in another space, and I'm waiting to feel life is back to normal... but I did manage to finish a few cards in my UFO pile.These two evolved after I die cut a few of these Sizzix Daisies from the Wildflower Stems #1 set. Just watercoloured them and mounted the purple ones on pretty patterned paper and stamped and gold embossed the sentiment. The pink one was attached to an embossed white card with lightly smooched Distress Oxide ink and a silver embossed sentiment.
