Monthly picks are always a difficult choice for me.   Especially hard this month, because Halloween is coming up as well as Thanksgiving and Christmas.   I opted to focus on a technique and products that would support all the holidays and chose to work on HEAT EMBOSSING.   It can be a little intimidating, but once you try it – you’ll be embossing everything!   When it comes to embossing powders, everyone typically thinks “metallic” – BUT my pick is going to be WHITE.   White embossing works on any dark card stock – incredibly striking.  So for your Halloween images on black or that elegant eggplant or even a Cajun craze (purple and a deep orange)… perfect.  For Christmas, let’s go with the dark red, Cranberry Crisp with a poinsettia image, or the darkest blue, Night of Navy with a snowman,snowflake or polar bear.    That little container of powder will last forever, btw.  But the best advantage to white embossing is that your coordinating card stock is white -  if you shop for metallics they are a little pricy, but everyone has white.  Check back to see this months creations, articles and video links – I’m stoked to get started.
