Golden Ivy

Hi Everyone,

Today I am going to get out the heat gun
and do a little embossing.
The stamps I am going to use today
come from the wonderful world of

Sheena has a great line of products
called Paint Fusion. You can use paints with her stamps. Or as I did, use embossing powder.

You can purchase these items from

Here are the two stamps I used.

I started out with a piece of black chipboard.
Stamped the ivy images with VersaMark,
then dusted them with gold embossing powder.
Pulled out the handy dandy heat gun,
and voila, gold outlined leaves.

To give the leaves some color, I took a tiny
paint brush and dabbed some Pearl Ex
in the centers. ( If you use a brush stroke, the
Pearl Ex will go all over the place).

The colors I used,
644-Reflex Violet
685-Spring Green

I took the heat gun and went
over the powder to help it set.
After that I used the tiny flower from
the Berrie stamp and embossed them
 over the the leaves.
That's it!

Very easy, and something you may
want to try with your kiddos.
"( You use the heat gun!!)"
"( Never let children around)"
"(unattended heat sources)"
Always be safe!! 
:)  :)
Stamp something out, and let them color it in.
Place it on the Fridge, and you have
a masterpiece for life.

I hoped you enjoyed the post today.

Thank you for stopping by!
And have a scrappy day!
