$1 Bunny Stamp from Michaels
VersaMark Stamp Pad
Black Embossing Powder
Spectrum Noir Markers
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Easter Punnies "Have an EGGS-tra special Easter!"

If you read my first post on March 31st, (just scroll down if you would like to see it), you know that I was going to challenge myself to use heat embossing...and this the the second card that I have done just that. I really like the way the embossing came out again. Since it was small areas that needed to be colored, the Spectrum Noir Markers worked fine, but I don't think I would use them for larger areas with the heat embossing. I think there was a chemical reaction going on that  might ruin your larger projects...just my opinion though.

For the envelope, I made a coordinating liner with the colors and the Swiss Dots embossing. I also added a stamped set of eggs for a play on words with the sentiment.

I think I got my money's worth with my Michael's dollar stamp...he is such a funny bunny. Don't you agree?

Thanks for dropping by.

imagine what you could do...
