More Couch Love!

Hey!

Happy Monday (Do they exist?!)! Hope your weekend was fabby and you're into the swing of the working week (only 4 more working days until the next weekend!)

Over the weekend I gave my On My Couch set some more inky love and also got busy with my heat gun. It's been waaaaay too long since I've heat embossed, I forgot how much fun it was to watch that powder melt!

This has to be one of my favourite PTI Colour Combos! The embossed bits, if you can't tell, are my background panel of Polka Dots and the Sentiment; both stamped with Versamark and covered with Detail White EP. I ♥ detail embossing powder, means the finest of lines can be embossed without any blobby bits!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Polka Dot Basics II/On My Couch/On My Couch Additions/Vintage Labels
Ink: Versamark/Pure Poppy/Dark Chocolate/Ripe Avocado/Fresh Snow
Card: Enchanted Evening/Pure Poppy/Stamper's Select White
Accessories: Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/White Detail EP/Ripe Avocado Grosgrain Ribbon
/White Gel Pen

This card is for our new challenge over on our PTI Blog! All you've gotta do is feature embossing on your creations and it doesn't have to be the heat gun kind! Think about embossing Nestabilities, using Embossing Folders or your traditional stencil and ball tool!

Well still snowing here - beginning to wonder if it will ever stop?! The scariest thing is that Sheffield council think they've run out of grit after today - eek! Could be a slippery few days!

Catch ya later!

Edited to add: My Lil' Clippie card & Potato Optional card made the CAS Faves over on SCS this week! Whoop! I'm really chuffed!

Aimes, this card is great but I'm now wanting On My Couch set! I'm curious... is the paper with large polka dots created by you with a circle stamp or is that a patterned paper of some sort? :) I see you said you embossed it but wasn't sure if it was already printed with the white dots. In any case, this card is wonderful!
