Woodland Embossing and Heat & Stick Training makes

We had our big team Quarterly Team Training event today - and I was asked to demo some of my earlier shared makes using the Woodland embossing folder and Heat & Stick powder. A real technique based demo if there ever was...
So me being me had to remake a set so that the colours actually all co-ordinated! 

And then Julie decided that everyone could make them...and everyone did! What an honour! Think they all liked them  - once some got over their fear of such dark ink on an embossing folder!! And every card was fab....
So here is the set of 5 cards - with some individual photos too...
Unfocused photo above so you can hopefully see how sparkly this one is!
I mainly used the combination of Night & Navy, Smoky Slate and Whisper White - but then I was told that we had gold foil in the training kit - so a quick last minute "goldify" later - and here you have them... though I could not bring myself to put a blue tree on the bottom centre card - so that one went Crumb Cake...
And do check out the glittery Snowflake Elements - they are so gorgeous - whether you use clear Versamark - or Whisper White craft ink - plus Heat & Stick/Dazzling Diamonds - or gold glitter. Think you will be seeing more of those....

This colour combination also defined the colours I used for my swap card (shared yesterday) - as I had to share the Dazzling Diamonds Tile technique too - and that seemed to be the most effective way to get a 6th card using Heat & Stick into everyones' hands


  1. A gorgeous set Amanda - I'm sure the girls loved making them at training.

    1. Thanks JOANNE. Never seen so much glitter over so many people at the same time!

    2. Thanks so much for yesterday - the cards are fabulous - clever you! Thanks for sharing, see you again soon.

    3. Thanks Kate... So glad to hear you liked them! And thanks for your swaps... And clever extra window panes tip too...I will be trying that one out!

  2. We are SO lucky to have you in our team! Thanks for doing the demo and taking the pressure off me! x

    1. My pleasure.... Glad i could help you out!
