how to emboss...incredibly simple. Note from Jacque: The only thing I would clarify is to buy pigment ink for embossing. Dye based ink is for stamping without embossing. Pigment ink will not dry on its own - it must be covered in powder and heat embossed. This technique works well when you want to color in with markers or watercolors.
I used a Stampin Up heart punch punched through a scrap piece of typing paper and sponged the heart with 3 colors of Ranger distress inks(Scattered Straw, Wild Honey,Brushed Corduroy). I stamped the stem in Early Espresso and dotted with white Enamel Accents.** those r the instructions to make the card.. I am thinking of another project though, so for me this is for inspiration
