Double Embossing

This beautiful stamp comes from Stamps Happen,Inc. Let Not our Hearts Be Busy # 80297. The image was stamped on Ivory Swirls and Twirls by Paper Piazza. I stamped it with black StazOn ink and covered with clear embossing powder from Ranger and heat set.

Next I colored in the image with my Le Plume markers and allowed it to dry. Then I went back over what I had colored for the background with Metallic EZ Gel pens by Geddes. These gel pens remain wet for quite sometime, so I covered the ink with another layer of clear embossing powder and heat set.

I used my Christmas present (A Cuttlebug) to emboss the cranberry cardstock. Then added the stamped paper with Zig glue. To highlight the berries I added red diamond like little dots that are from Darice. Next add a beautiful red bow and you are finished.

Merry Christmas Everyone
