Hello and welcome to Simon Says Stamp “Winter Twinkle” December Card Kit Blog Hop! Sorry I have been a bit MIA in the past few days, I have been traveling to USA and got back last week. I’m still getting used to the current time zone and catching up on all the work. Its crazy!

I’m happy to join to blog hop dedicated to the December card kit from Simon which focuses on heat embossing! How fun is that? I remember the feeling I had when I melted embossing powder for the first time – felt like pure magic! I even took the heat embossing supplies to my mother’s home and showed her how its done! I was and still am very much excited about embossing, so much you can do with it! So many cool techniques!

I think I usually use heat embossing for backgrounds for my cards (especially for the resist technique), but I also love to heat emboss sentiments. That cool raised surface creates such a wow factor! Here are a few more cards of mine with embossing:

    1. HI, blog hopping is new to me but i´m up for it. Just writing to let you know that you make my girlfriend very happy and i´m asking to be at the top of your work. THX

    1. Love, love, love your cards. I was trying to come up with ideas for the banners and your card really inspires me!

    1. Hi Yana!
      Thank you for sharing your BEAUTIFUL Cards! I love watching your videos as you create your amazing cards. Have a wonderful day! 🙂

      thanks for sharing.

    1. They’re both gorgeous cards; thanx for the inspiration and blog candy opp!

    1. Love both your cards, Yana! I especially like the idea of using stitching on the heat embossed banners. Seems so obvious, but I never thought to do it. Such a cool effect, though. Thanks so much for sharing your creations!
