framed heart

Ok, I am LOVING the Sizzlits Stampin' Up! offers - how fun is this little frame?! So perfect for the 'i {heart} you' sentiment. This time I decided to add a little sparkle by using some Iridescent Ice embossing powder - here's a tip for those who don't have every color of Craft ink. Stamp your image once in Classic ink using the Stamp-a-ma-jig (or other stamp positioner) and then without moving the positioner, clean off your stamp, re-ink in Versamark and stamp again. You'll stamp your second image exactly over the previous one and then you can heat emboss. Voila! I did that with this card and you can see it more clearly in the close-up.

Have a fantastic day - see you back soon.
