ODBDSLC260- Heat & Dry Embossing

Good morning!
Seasons- Our lives have season too!

This week's challenge is to heat emboss and dry emboss.  The easiest way to dry emboss is to use an embossing folder but if you don't have one you can dry emboss in other ways.  You can emboss with a die using the rubber impression pad and embossing plates instead of the die plates in your machine or you can use a method we used to use 10 or 15 years ago with a light source, a stylist and a brass template.  To heat emboss you need embossing fluid or a pigment pad and embossing powder with a heat source like a heat gun or a toaster? (That is what I used at first!!!).
Today I used the heat embossing as a resist technique.  I used the leaves background stamp with VersaMagic then added gold powder and used my Milwaukee heat gun to emboss.  I then rubbed color dye inks onto the cardstock and wiped off the excess from the embossed lines. I used the same embossing powder for my scripture as well.  The dry embossing was done with an embossing folder from Cuttlebug. 
I used my sewing machine to finish the top panel.

Seasons of life.
We all have seasons in our lives, but God has a plan for our lives through all of our seasons.
When we are going through a season of loneliness, depression, or despair God is with us.  He said He will never leave us nor forsake us when our faith is in Him. 
When you don't know what to believe because of all that is in the media and social media, read His word to know what God say about everything, to know how you as His follower should believe and respond.  Yes, there is good and evil, right and wrong, light and dark but to KNOW what God thinks, you must read His word.
Make God's word your priority in EVERY season of your life.
Thanks for visiting!
