Fire & Ice Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Blog Hop. I can't wait to see what all of our other bloggers are up to today!

My friend Julie shared a really cool photo with me the other day that inspired this Fire & Ice scrapbook page. I think this page really captures the concept of "fire" and "ice", do you agree?

To create the base paper, I stamped a 12x12 Blue Plain with the ice crystal image using Versamark ink and heat embossed with iridescent embossing powder. (I used the embossing powder from the Aurora Borealis kit from a few years ago, but any shimmery/iridescent embossing powder will do.)

I stamped the phrase with Sapphire Hybrid Ink onto a plain white panel, and added more stamped "ice crystals" with Versamark ink and clear glitter embossing powder around the edge of the panel.

Now it's time to check out what awesome creations our other bloggers have in store for us. Here's a full list of the Hop participants. If you like what you see, please leave a little blog lovin' in the form of a comment, it will really make their day!
