Make It Monday #309 - Heat Embossed Stencil Backgrounds

Hello friends.  Melissa Phillips is hosting this week's Make It Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink and she is showing us fun ways to use our stencils with heat embossing.

I have always been a huge fan of the Modern Background Stencil Collection, and that was my starting point for my card today.

 
I used a gold Sparkle Embossing Powder (Recollections) and one of the Modern Background Stencils to create my background and then started adding my layers using the Mix & Mat: Hearts dies, Stitched Primitive Heart Dies, Farmer's Market Florals, (gosh, I LOVE this set!), and the You Have My Heart stamp set & dies.  A few clear sequins finished off my first Valentine's Day card.


This was a FUN challenge...Melissa always feeds my love of layering!!  Check out her video and GORGEOUS cards right HERE and then play along!  :0)

                                Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
