Wednesday’s Card: Enamel Heart

Enamel Heart

Enamel Heart


I made this card as a Valentine’s Day card, but you could really use it for anything. The background stamp is the “Friendship Definition” by Hero Arts. I used UTEE (Ultra-Thick Embossing Enamel) to create this heart embellishment that looks like a shiny epoxy heart. All I did was heat-emboss it three times and voila! It’s very cool in person. I also used a paper distressor for the blue piece, which I don’t think I have used in a video before.

I got about 10 new distress ink colors for Christmas – one of them is Pumice Stone. I really love this color – it is on the background of this card. It’s kind of like gray but gray is drab and this is not. I love it.

I’m off to a scrapbooking retreat this weekend! Friday to Sunday with no responsibilities except to scrap! Some of my friends think this sounds like torture, but I can’t wait!!

Enjoy the video and have a great week!

    I love this..I have some UTEE, but haven’t tried it out yet. I don’t know why not. I have an old retired SU love by definition bg stamp too..lightbulb moment:) Thanks for the inspiration..I might play around with your idea. Don’t know if my card will be as beautiful as yours!
