PTI MIM #112: Embossed Alpha Die Cuts

Ashley Newell showed us how to add colors and textures to alpha or number die cuts by heat embossing. This is the current challenge for PTI's Make It Monday on Nichole Heady's blog. Almost hate to admit this task wasn't as easy as Ashley made it look. Perhaps I should have started earlier in the week but didn't get to my craft room until tonight. Wonderful Words: Hello die cut was stamped using VersaMark and the Half & Half plaid stamp before heat embossing with Stampin' Up's Melon Mambo embossing powder.

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Hawaiian Shores, New Leaf, White, and Country Charm by Diane Kappa
Ink: VersaMark
Stamps: Half & Half
Dies: Half & Half, Wonderful Words: Hello and Mat Stack #6
Other: Linen/Canvas Impression Plate, SU Melon Mambo Embossing Powder, rhinestones & SU Dimensionals

Love the way you framed the "hello" diecut - really nicely designed card!

This is so pretty. I like how you used patterned paper behind your focal point--those striped patterns are really great.
