I wanted to do the Embedded Embossing (also known as Molten Pearls) technique again and I thought the Geraniums silhouette image from Sparkle N Sprinkle would be a good stamp to use for this technique.

I started off by die cutting my labels die and covering it with VersaMark and heat embossing it with Firecracker Red embossing powder.  I repeated this process again with the Firecracker Red.  On the third repeat, I used Clear embossing powder instead of the Firecracker Red.  This gives sit a really glossy look, similar to the way Glossy Accents does when dry.  Next I stamped the Geranium silhouette and heat embossed with Black embossing powder, heating it throughly until it melts into the background.

Die cut the tag (cut in half) and follow the same steps as before, using the sentiment from the Shabby Chic Birdhouse rubber stamp set.

The Dee's Distinctively (Lattice 1) die was cut out of SNS Sticker Paper and covered with Swan Wing tinsel glitter.  The Poppystamps die was also cut out of Sticker paper and covered with Citron Green glitter.  (This is more of a gold than a green and matched the design in the paper perfectly.)  I folded the top of the die cut like an accordion for added dimension.  The base and mat were cut with Spellbinders Grand Labels Four dies and the papers are from Graphic 45's Bird Song collection.
