A Swallowtail metamorphosis

I felt like heat embossing tonight while hanging out with my friend Shauna. I pulled out the not so shy Swallowtail stamp for a coating of Pool Party embossing powder and made history.

It was Shauna's first time heat embossing and I loved hearing her reaction to the chemical change that occurs as the embossing powder melts into a solid work of art. Kinda seems appropriate we were doing a butterfly as there was a metamorphosis going on right before our eyes.

I really love heat embossing even though I don't do it a lot. Tonight we added a little Champagne Mist shimmer paint onto the our image. Both the Champagne Mist and the DSP I used on this card are retired products, but everything else is current.

Here's our card for tonight.

Card Recipe
Stamp Sets: Swallowtail, Too Kind (sentiment)
Paper: Cardstock is Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit, DSP is retired
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Emboss Powder in Pool Party, Stitched Satin Ribbon in Summer Starfruit, Large Oval Punch
Tools: Heat tool

I've been cutting up some of my retired DSP's into small packets to use as door prizes for my in-home classes.

I also made this "Book to Look" board to encourage bookings.

There are five 3x3 envelopes with tags inside that have a gift written on it.  A party attendee who books a class withing the next two months will receive the gift at the time she has her workshop. In addition, the person hosting the party that day also gets the same prize. How cool is that!

Don't you just want to pull on that string and see what the prize is?Possible prizes include Baker's Twine, Kraft Gift Boxes, Stampin' Marker, Stampin' Sponges and Stampin' Dimensionals.

The prize envelopes were made using the Polka Dot Parade DSP in colors Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Real Red, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight. These are all colors from the Bright Color family which makes it so easy to match up with coordinating cardstock.

So when are you booking your party?


Hugs & blessings, Angela
