Welcome 2012 - A new year!


How is everyone doing? I am enjoying the 1st morning of this new year and hoping that it will be the best one for me in every sense.. and wishes the same for you..!
With this new year, I wanna share few mini cards that I made with distress inks and heat embossing.. This is my 1st try on these and I am so loving these techniques.. In the next few posts, I will share my embossing and distressed projects only.. :)

I did the heat embossing on a frying pan .. :D I heated the frying pan on a medium flame and rotated the paper at a level above it... within seconds the embossing powder melted.. :) so when I say I am in kitchen doesn't mean that I am cooking!! I might be crafting..!! ;) 

Individual pictures of the mini cards. Distress ink used: Faded jeans blue

This one is made with Barn door shade of distress ink

3rd one is made with Wild honey ink.

I could have go on but Alas! I have only 3 distress inks.. :(

The butterfly stamp is from Hero arts Antique graving stamp set. The sentiment is from Penny black. Black cardstock is a local buy and the distressing is done on white Brustro painting paper.

Also, on public demand, sharing a picture of my latest goodies I shopped at Joann's on thanksgiving.

The cards are cuteness personified...I love the simplicity and an extra hint of colour near the butterfly. Its simply gorgeous..
The fact that you heat embossed on a frying pan is just as impressive as the cards :)
Even if you have just three distress inks doesn't manage to bring out the best in minimum supplies.
The joann goodies have made me green eyed :D :D
