Double Embossed Hearts

Gina K has a cool video tutorial on double embossing on the Stamp TV blog so I wanted to try that with this heart image. I stamped the Polkadot Punches heart image in versamark and embossed with black embossing powder. I took my Versamark pen, using the small point tip, to apply Versamark to the small sections of the heart and clear embossed those. Punched out with my SU large heart punch. The center heart is popped up on dimensionals. I applied those to the heart embossed black panel. I stamped the little "Love" heart from I {Heart} Hearts onto Pretty in Pink cardstock and punched with one of the trio heart punches. I attached this heart to my gingham ribbon with pink embroidery thread.

Please scroll down to also see the Work Those Punches heart card I made for our CCEE Stampers challenge today, too.

Okay.  I gotta go for a walk now.  I've been sitting at this computer for far too long today.

Too long at the computer - one of the perils of being at home. OK, so it's a hazard of work too, but it can be more engrossing at home :D.
This is gorgeous - but it's making me think of dark chocolates with a raspberry fondant filling!!
