Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge - Heat Embossing

This is my second post for the day. For my Flutter By Wednesday post, please scroll down. My February calendar page will be posted here tomorrow:) 


It's time for a new Designer's Choice Challenge from Repeat Impressions. Today's challenge was chosen by Miriam, and the challenge is to use heat embossing. For the details on the challenge and to see the creations by the other Rock Stars, please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built. You can also follow these links to their blogs:

For my card, I started out by stamping the Large Butterfly Silhouette, found here, with a Spectrum pigment ink pad and embossing with a clear embossing powder. I added the Lightning Bugs, found here, with black. I matted the background panel with black. The sentiment is matted with black, also, and mounted on Dimensionals. We'd love to have you join us, and one lucky participant will win a full sheet of unmounted rubber.

Wendy is looking for a new Rock Star. If you are interested in applying for the opening left by Vicki, please check out The House That Stamps Built.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Beautiful butterfly card! I love the color variation and on my computer the wings show up so glossy because of the embossing!

I love this, Lynette. Your butterflies are GORGEOUS!! Those little bees tucked in just make this such an adorable card.
