Crafty Creations Challenge #151: Turn Up the Heat!

In my neck of the woods, yesterday was definitely a day to turn up the thermostat -- it was COLD! And at Crafty Creations Challenges, we're getting you to turn up the heat with some heat embossing this week. 



Using heat embossing is not a huge challenge for me -- NOT using heat embossing might make it a challenge! So I decided to increase my heat-embossing repertoire by investigating using it on digital images. This butterfly image is from our sponsor this week, Pattie's Creations. I printed it out on vellum and had my embossing powder at the ready to sprinkle as soon as the paper cleared the printer. As you can see, it worked perfectly! (I may have to try this on regular cardstock next -- imagine the possibilities! )
Be sure to visit the Crafty Creations Challenges blog to see what the other design team members have created, and to enter the challenge! 

supplies: Stampin' Up very vanilla and rich razzleberry cardstock, Basic Grey euphoria-ferver patterned paper, Pattie's Creations digital image, gold embossing powder, Martha Stewart border punch

Awesome embossing! I've never tried it on vellum. Do you have to use a special type of vellum or just heat it really carefully? The butterfly is perfect with that dreamy paper. :)
