SU Christmas in July - Day 1

This post is going to kick off a weekend of Stampin' Up Christmas in July cards!  On the very last day of July we got together to make a total of 10 cards in 3 different designs.  Today I am posting my heat embossed card - if you know me, then you know I *ONLY* heat emboss when my SU demonstrator Christi has it on a card.  I have to admit though that this time I was fascinated watching the embossing powder turn - it was like watching a wave come onshore!  As cool as it was, I still don't have the guts to try it on my own...maybe one day, Christi.

Everything on this card is SU except for the gold ribbon which came from my stash.


  1. Nice job Allison! You can do it! It just takes a little practice! I made several Christmas cards last year using the wise men image from Stampin Up and I heat embossed with black on white paper. They looked incredible even if I do say so myself!

  2. Beautiful card Allison! I love heat embossing though I don't do it that often. I think it's the clean up issue. I've used it more since I bought some ziplock containers and plastic spoons. Now I just keep the embossing powder in a container with the spoon and hold my object I'm embossing over the container and then tape it back in. Less clean up and waste I've found. I don't know why but I seem to heat emboss more on Christmas cards. I look forward to seeing all your SU creations!

  3. Allison, this is gorgeous!! I don't often use heat embossing, either, but this makes me want to try it again. SO beautiful!
