H is for Hearts & Heat Embossing

Not triple embossing but rather Dodeca embossing meaning about 10 times heating the embossing powders and then stamping into it. My little message on the 'H' is "Craft from the Heart". Don't think too much about what you're going to do, just make a start and go with your instinct, it usually ends up being right.

This is the second Decopatch letter in my series of 12 that I plan to complete. The Tin Man stamp is from Artistic Outpost, absolutely fabulous Wizard of Oz stamps!

There is 3 embossing powders in this leg below, a blue metallic cosmic shimmer embossing powder, then a Papermania white one, then a Debbie Moore pink (I think it was scented too!) embossing powder. Not sure if I was a fan of the smell though. The letters are a Tim Holtz Typeset letters die, I used tartan card to cut out the letters.

The blue/purple metallic Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder has a great effect here, and I used some metallic paint inside the heart. The heart and the sentiment was stamped with Tim Holtz stamps.

I don't remember where I got the blue hearts, they are from an old stash of craft stuff I have, and the glass vial guessed it!........Tim Holtz. I filled it with little sequin hearts.

I got the chipboard heart from an old stash too, but the dots around the heart are the pearl Cosmic Shimmers glue.

Next its the letter E mmmmm. It can't be more embossing can it?
