PTI MIM ~ Ink Blending Over Heat Embossing

It's not every Monday that I get to play along with PTI'S MIM but we got the tail end of a Nor'Easter here so I'm happy to be snowed in on a Monday! This week is Danielle's turn and she inspired us with some ink blending over heat embossing.
You can find all the details on Nichole's blog


My first card uses Tulip Time. Oh my, do I enjoy inking this set up. The color combo's are endless! I used a scripty frame from SSS for the heat embossing and blended Peacock Feather Distress Ink over the top. The tulips curve gently around this image, and it looks so elegant. I used the sentiment from Hands of Time.

While I had Hands of Time out, I thought it would be nice to try another card using the smaller clock face as my heat embossed image.

I used Abandoned Corlal for blending and heat embossed just the word "TIME" in silver.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings to you~ Birgit

  1. Gorgeous cards Birgit. Love the colors of both of them. BTW, I have wondered where you live? Snowed in on the second day of Spring. We had 3 or 4 days of beautiful sunshine and today it is back to good ole rain.

  6. WOW...you definitely made good use of a snowy day Birgit! Our big snow event is supposedly coming Wednesday and Thursday...yuck! But maybe it will inspire me like it did you?!!! Your cards are absolutely lovely! Love the soft colors in both cards and using the clock in the 2nd card is just genius! A+ on both in my book!! :0)

  8. Lovely cards! It was so sunny and warm last week in Maryland that I was sure we'd seen the end of the cold, but yesterday saw light snow flurries, and this morning we awoke to a cold, but light snowy deck! I haven't enough stamping gear to follow these PTI challenges yet, but soon...

  21. Love the complimentary colors of yellow and purple! Both cards are lovely and have elements that enhance your sentiment of "Congratulation!" I am drawn to the clock with the pink embossing, though. It's so lovely. Thanks for sharing!!!

  22. Both cards are very striking, Birgit. Those tulips in any color combo really dress up a card. Waiting for my dies to arrive because I didn't think I really needed them when I ordered the stamp set in February but on my March order. That pink clock with the black hands really pops!
