Heat and Dry Embossing

Hero Arts and Sizzix have joined to come out with stamps that also have an embossing folder.  I purchased one of these sets at Archiver's yesterday and made this card:
I embossed on Kraft cardstock with white Zing embossing powder and then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the folder. 
You can see how it embosses the image here.  Very cool, huh?
I used My Mind's Eye Stella Rose papers which I love and added a little white seam binding in a bow.  Simple but elegant...don't you think?

Oh...we got a brand new Hobby Lobby which opened on Monday.  It is 66,000 square feet of space is is reportedly the largest Hobby Lobby in the southeast.  No big grand opening specials yet but I'm hoping....
Nice store though....

Happy Crafting!


  1. The embossing gives it a wonderful look. Did not know about the Hero Arts combos of stamps & embossing folders. Do know about the HA stamps & die cuts.

  2. Very pretty and elegant! I just love to watch the powder melt on heat embossing- it's almost like magic! :)Amy

  3. beautiful embossing! Where did the new HL open up at? Almost looks like the same plaza that Archiver's is in.

  4. This is gorgeous, Susan!! I've been tempted to buy those Hero Arts/Sizzix stamps, but haven't yet. Hope all's well w/you and your family!!! Miss you, my friend!!! Sending big hugs your way!!! XOXOXO
