Heat Embossing....it's been ages!

Well the technique challenge this week at Jac-inks is Heat Embossing. This is something I would do all the time when I first started stamping but haven't done it in years. So I had to get my heat gun back from a friend I had lent it to so she could make her wedding invites and then put my thinking cap on. I had a very busy weekend so had little time to put something together and sort of rushed this first card, and so wasn't l00% happy with it. So instead of doing a scrapbook page at Ann's on Monday night I decided to have a play with my favourite Stampin' Up stamp set at the moment, and do a bit of embossing on the bees. It was the first time to that night that I had made the flowers and was pleased with the results. Hope you like the cards.
