Repeat Impressions DCC21- heat embossing challenge

One of my 2012 goals is to submit my work for more challenges and for publication in print magazines. So, today I am entering the Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge (DCC21) that calls for a project using the technique of heat embossing shown on the Repeat Impressions blog entitled The House That Stamps Built. The deadline is 2.14.12 at 5pm EST and the prize is the choice of one sheet of Repeat Impressions unmounted stamps.

I love Repeat Impressions stamps and card kits. I have used them several times on this blog. However, today my project does not use their stamps. I created a card for teacher appreciation week (an order from my bestie Nikki...shout out girlfriend!) and I love how the heat embossing gives it that extra something special.

  • Cricut Cart - Sophie card 2 pg 28

Wish me luck!
