Design Team Monday at the Turtle!

Good morning all!!  Sorry I have been a slacker but last week was a bit of a rough one.

Anyway, I am back with another DT project for Scrapping Turtle.  This week we are focusing on the technique of stamping.  Easy peasy for me - I LOVE my stamps!!!!

The first technique I used was stamping then heat embossing on a button. You have to be careful when stamping because it is very easy to slide on a button.

Tip: When heat embossing, make sure you put a heat resistant tray or trivet down under your button. I learned that the hard way and have the scorch marks in my carpet to prove it. 

The second technique is combining stamping & die-cutting. I stamped this banner image then die cut it out.

For the third technique I stamped the heart image and then covered it in Glossy Accents.
