AWIC DAY#4,HEAT EMBOSSING AND PAPER PIECING

Today cards are totally experimented ones with some stamping techniques,so bare with me.Even though i have got some custom made stamps,wooden stamps n few acrylic stamps i dint have good ink pads with me before,..except the pigment inks i get here which are good only for sponging and not stamping,..it totally mess up the thing and i thought i am bad at stamping and didn't try after that,..but now that i have got a full set of memento ink pads,..wow stamping is now interesting,colorful and coming out better now:)i am obsessed with it now and stamped and colored almost all the stamps i hav,lol

Well,first card is done with heat embossing,..like most of you did i too burnt my heat tool,..not me exactly,.the idiotic shop person did that job,..initially most of the shop persons recommended me 1500rs stabilizer for the heat tool,..but i felt its costly more than the tool itself,..so i dint get that,..finally a shop person told 300rs converter is enough and tried with it n burnt the thing:((Thank god,..a electrician nearby my house agreed to repair it and made it work for me and now i am using a 400rs converter,..
I am still learning,,so here is my simple card made with heat embossing,..and i am sending this to tejal's embossing challenge.

These two cards are done with paper piecing,..i didn't have any big stamps and most of stamps are silhouette ones,..so tried with the few ones i hav,..the stamps is custom made,..
This stamp is from stampendous ,.my very first clear stamp,..but using it for the first time..and i made these two card for paper piecing challenge in yvonne's blog,..
Oohh,..my craft room is a disaster now,..can even step into it,..off to cleaning,..will be back with a nice card tomorrow:)

Happy crafting,
