Crafty Projects, Part Second

For my next "what I did at my crafty weekend" post, may I present:

This was my first attempt at iron-off embossing ala Jennifer McGuire. I first stamped my background image on white card stock using Versamark ink, then I heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then applied some Distress ink using the new mini blender tools. They are so easy to use! When I was done coloring, I ironed off the embossing so the card is all flat and smooth. It makes it look like magic!

The sentiment is from a new Simon Says Stamp set called Summer Garden. I may or may not have already ordered it. *ahem*

I might start unpacking, or I might not. Either way, I'll share another project here soon. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: vat of clear embossing powder, iron, printer paper, and the following:


  1. Well, if you've done the ironing off thing, I guess I will have to find that travel iron I bought many years ago for this very reason and give it a try, too. Or maybe I bought it for the long forgotten napkin and wax technique. At any rate, it has never been plugged in. I like the result, it's lovely.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
