Penny Black - {Heart} Christmas

Hi everyone.  I'm back today to share two cards using a new stamp set from Penny Black's Season of Hope Release called {heart} Christmas (30-759).

For the card above I used the main heart image, heat embossing in Princess Gold (yellow gold) embossing powder before die-cutting.

I watercolour the image using distress inks and then die-cut using the matching die, {heart} Christmas cut out (51-690).  Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment (from the same stamp set) onto my card front and then popped up the heart die-cut for added dimension.

Close-up ... you can see the real shimmer of this yellow gold embossing powder.

For the second card I used some of the smaller stamps to create a Christmas spray.
I stamped in black ink, heat embossed in clear and then cut out the images using the matching die set.  The images were watercoloured with Distress Inks.  Stamped the sentiment from Christmas Moments (30-731) in black and also heat embossed in clear to match. 

Close-up ...

Thanks for stopping by.
