Hello all, Welcome to PaperTemptress and Gracielle Designs Blog Hop, be sure to leave a comment on all post to enter to win either a $20 GC from PaperTemptress.com or a $20 GC from Gracielle Designs. So there will be 2 winners…the winners will be announced on April 1st….
I wanted to show you that there are a huge variety of designs you can create with pretty paper and an image so I designed wall art today….Gracielle Designs digital images are so detailed that you really don’t need to do anything with them as you can see here…I heat embossed this image from the Lace Flower set which is easy to do when using PaperTemptress’s Pearl Glimmer. PaperTemptress carries many sheets that you can use to heat emboss digital images but this Pearl Glimmer works the best since it is really really really smooth so none of the ink when printed with an ink jet printer is going to seep into the cardstock so when you put embossing powder on the image it heat embosses PERFECTLY! You can also use a similar technique to use foil without a laminator using a digital image….Gracie made a video showing how to heat emboss and foil digital images…you can watch it here!
So I used the very popular Pearl Glimmer to print and heat emboss the image…the first mat is my very favorite ever designer paper from Die Cuts with a View Glitter Stack…then I added another mat using the GORGEOUS Black Pearl Ultimate Glossy…I soooo wish you could see how gorgeous this cardstock really is…no camera or computer screen will show the depth of this cardstock since when you look at it there is (it is hard to explain LOL) a sparkle in it…then I added some bling…this was soooo easy to create, anyone could easily create this…
I also heat embossed the other Lace Flower that is included in the Lace Flower set..haven’t designed anything with it yet but you can just how beautiful the Pearl Glimmer works with heat embossing digital images…I didn’t use any sentiment but oh my the sentiments included with the Lace Flowers look AMAZING when heat embossed.
okay now to continue on with the blog hop…
