Turn up the Heat at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi there, well we're turning up the heat at Fashionable Stamping Challenges for our new challenge so we want to see you use your heat guns. Its quite an apt theme as I've certainly had to turn the heat up this weekend as its been really cold and frosty although I'm not complaining too much as we've had the most gorgeous blue sky too. As always our lucky challenge winner will receive a fab voucher from Flonzcraft, don't forget though you do need to use a stamp to enter as no digis are allowed!

For my DT card I've used one of my favourite Christmas stamps from Chocolate Baroque, stamped with versamark and embossed with white EP on a distress ink background (Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood). I added a bit more distress ink to add some depth to the little scene and layered my topper up on a shaped card blank.

I made the card blank by using a bracket die to cut the side and then running the edge through an embossing folder before inking with a little distress ink.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: white Christmas
A Creative Romance: Anything goes
Crafty Catz: last minute Christmas
Creative moments: anything goes/winter
Jingle Belles: anything goes
Papertake Weekly: paper play (die cut and embossed card edges)
Stempelsonnen: Anything goes
That's Crafty: Anything goes

If you've got a minute grab a cuppa and check out the gorgeous artwork my talented DT Sisters have created to inspire you. Thanks so much for visiting today
