S2112 Stamp

No owls were harmed during stamp surgery

I did not have a current project that needed an owl but I kept looking at the beautiful filigree on the main owl’s wings and thinking how pretty it would look heat embossed.  I knew stamp surgery was required and tossed around a few ideas in my head.  I think they would make awesome flower petals or look fab as a textural imprint on small cut shapes.

I needed to make a birthday card for one of my nieces and a wedding card for another niece.  So I made both using the same technique!

White cardstock and silver heat embossing

This combo is always elegant and allows the stamp design to be the hero of the card.

That's awesome Shauna. I love it.  So simple and yet so elegant. I have always been a bit scared of stamp surgery, but seeing this I might give it a go.
