Papertake #28 / DCM –Heat It Up

I mentioned yesterday that I had been making another card that wasn’t quite finished.

I was actually working on this weeks template from Papertake Weekly



but I was having a few problems with it, the main reason being that I made the card before giving any thought what so ever to the image that I was going to put on it.

In the end I decided to have a go at following the great little tutorial that Vanessa has written for the mid week Little Extra on the Daring Cardmakers blog and I stamped into to some UTEE.

As luck would have it I managed to find an old free stamp that had come with a copy of Craft Stamper a while back and it almost matched the flowers on the ‘New Garden Collection’ papers from Crate.
If you’ve never stamped into UTEE and have no idea where to start, make sure you hop over HERE and have a go…..It’s all explained in nice easy steps.

Saw this dare on DCM - haven't done any UTEE for quite a while - might try and have a go - yours is super!

I saw the UTEE tutorial, but have not been able to find the stuff in France. Your embossed image is beautiful and it may have been a lucky chance that you found the stamp, but it does look great wih the backing paper. The whole card is a beautiful balance of color and texture.
