Craft Room challenge- Heat Embossing

We had some just beautiful entries for Julia's Vintage Stamping challenge, as always you didn't fail to disappoint.
Today's the start of a new challenge chosen by the lovely Suzanne, this is what Suzanne has to say about her chosen challenge:

"I selected my theme based on the past couple of summers we have had here in the UK - which have been far from good.  I thought we may do with a bit of "heat" although if we are at present experiencing a heatwave then the theme may prove a little unpopular as the last thing we will all want is to get those heat guns out ...whoops!  However I would love to see your heat embossing on your crafty projects......"


We are thrilled to have one of our regular supporters sponsor this challenge; - Stamp Addicts.

Celebrate Card
I have embossed the Ferris wheel and sentiment onto Glossy cardstock, and then using Tattered Angels Chalk based spray and Dylusions Spray I've created the sky and fireworks, nice and easy but effective :-)

I'm going to enter my card over at the renamed Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge- now the Monday Challenge the theme is Celebration.

We are currently in the midst of a swarm of Earthquakes here in Wellington, New Zealand, which has been a little nerve wracking at times :(  We are all safe but our house has some damage to it's chimney. Here's a link showing the earthquakes over a period of 48 hours that have been rattling us since friday morning there have been many more since then.

So wishing you all a Safe and Happy week.

I hope your world has stopped rocking and the chimney remains in place. Shocking to me that our news carries the effects felt in China but at least in the headlines no mention of NZ. Was the same with Christchurch and Japan.

Your celebration project is brilliant Love it and those colours oh bhoy they are luscious. XOXO Zoe
