FCD Get's HOT!


Are you ready to get hopping? We are ready for you! The hop officially starts at 11 AM (EST) so if you are early be patient if someone's post isn't up yet. Also remember that the hop is circular in that wherever you start is where you end too! The candy is hidden until the end, even we DT members don't know who the blog candy hostess is so you need to leave a comment on each of our pages for a chance to win it! Pamela will pick the hostess and the winner on Wednesday July 29, 2009 around 8 PM (EST) so be sure to hop all the way through before then!



HOT HOT HOT!!!!

FCD DT is heating things up for you in July!

The goal was to use some kind of heating technique to make a card or project
to show you the versatility of FCD stamps!

I opted to go for the embossed beach scene from the Mahalo set. I stamped it onto tissue paper with Versamark and then added some black embossing powder. Then heated it up even more to wrap the tissue paper around the candle. What I liked about the effect I got was that the embossing although done in black looks brown on the candle since it was cream to begin with.

So now you have seen what I did how about checking out Vicki's blog to see her take on Heating things up! I can't wait to see myself!...hop hop hop!

hugs,





Don't forget that the search for the new DT for FireCracker Designs by Pamela is still going on. You can find all the details here on Pamela's blog. Deadline is Aug 15, 2009

I love giving gifts like this one, but hadn't thought about embossing before putting the tissue paper on the candle. Yours looks like the sun is setting. Beautiful.
