WT64 The Heat is On
The heat has finally hit Ontario and in honor of summer finally arriving we are going to pull out our heat guns and find ways to use them. I seem to go in phases when I use my heat gun on almost every project and then take a break and hardly use it at all. Let's see what you all can do with yours.

I did want to let you know that things have been terribly crazy around here. The kids have been extremely busy with end of the year projects and DH is home renovating for a few weeks so I hardly even looked at any of the projects from last week's challenge. Sorry, I'll try and do better this week!

Please remember to put WT64 in your keywords section and post a link back here so we can all see it. If you need help or have any questions, feel free to pm me. Please no Sunday uploads. Feel free to make as many cards or projects as you wish for as long as you wish and combine other challenges as well.

Happy stamping,

Barbra1224 06-08-2006 05:31 AM

Here is my card for this challenge...DH is painting the house and I haven't been stamping because I feel bad sitting there while he is working so hard...house looks great though!

Thanks for looking,

Do mine eyes see visions of embossing powder and glitter??? I'm hyp-mo-tized!

BadSherry 06-08-2006 05:41 AM

Ooooh -- I use my heat gun everyday! Thanks Julia!!!

cheddar30 06-08-2006 05:46 AM

I love playing with the heat gun! What fun this will be!

valentina9 06-08-2006 05:49 AM

Boohoo! I am stuck and work, but ready to stamp, it'll hafta wait til I get home! Great challenge Julia!

Faereygirl 06-08-2006 05:51 AM

*tears* I'm stuck at work too...will post one up when I get home...

Babsnelson 06-08-2006 05:58 AM

Ooooo....I've been wanting to try the technique with heated Pearl Ex. Perfect opportunity. I just have to pick up white glue at the grocery store this morning! Thanks for the great challenge Julia.

lacyquilter 06-08-2006 06:00 AM

Oh, fun! So many options! Must finish yesterday's card first! Thanks, Julia.

LSN 06-08-2006 06:02 AM

Sniff! I'm one of the poor soles stuck at work too! I'll see what I can come up with tonight after the kiddos are asleep!


cjf&cjfsmommy 06-08-2006 06:03 AM

Got one done really quick just to feel like I can say I made a card today!;) I have to get busy I want to make another for this challenge and I still have to make a card for yesterday's challenge and cruise through the gallery!

pammyrn 06-08-2006 06:07 AM

Awsome challenge, I will get right on it.

LodiChick 06-08-2006 06:41 AM

This is perfect timing, I have a customer who let me borrow a retired stamp set and an embossing powder called enamelware blue and it is awesome. Just wish I had more images to use it on!!
Oh the ideas....will have to do more later. I have shrink plastic feeling lonely these days...


craftycacky 06-08-2006 06:56 AM

This is really sparkly in real life but I'm afraid it didn't scan very well. Thanks for looking!

GuarinoMom 06-08-2006 07:06 AM

Great challenge! I have a couple of cards that I have been wanting to make that I will need my heat gun for.
Can't wait to get on it tonight.

Jeanne S 06-08-2006 07:08 AM

Here's mine:


suen 06-08-2006 07:10 AM

I just posted a card for the SC and came to check what this one was. It qualifies for this, also. I use my heat gun all the time! Here's mine.


tashers 06-08-2006 07:24 AM

I just made a bunch of earrings yesterday with polyshrink! Here's a link to one of the pairs.

Jerri Kay 06-08-2006 07:28 AM

I don't know if I'll be able to play today, sure hope so! Here's a card I did a few months back where I used my heat gun to emboss the limes with clear embossing powder over craft ink. I embossed about three times to get a really thick texture, but unfortunately, it doesn't show up on the scan.


rainy 06-08-2006 07:31 AM

Don't have anything but embossing powders yet. I have a feeling that today's challenge is going to have me adding lots of fun things.. besides stamps.. to my ever growing wish list. Have a dentist appointment in a couple of hours. Gonna try and do something before that. :)

bonnie32002 06-08-2006 07:53 AM

I just finished a sample and will share another idea for your heat gun as well.
Basic black embossing
Melt your wax!
Thanks for looking

imastampin 06-08-2006 08:14 AM

Here's mine. Now gotta run do errands all day! Whew!

Heated Blossoms

Yuck, couldn't stand it after looking at it for a while. The gold I tried around the edges began looking like mold, so I redid the card. I like this one much better.


Barbra1224 06-08-2006 08:26 AM

Here's mine. Used two heat techniques: heated pearls and dazzling diamond dust. Thanks Julia!


stampinamy16 06-08-2006 08:33 AM

Add me to the "stuck at work" group... :(

And I so love my heat gun...

curlycurlyhair 06-08-2006 08:50 AM

Here's mine - I used the heat gun to make three shrinky dinks and emboss silver EP...


I also did these two yesterday for the Heated Pearls technique using my heat gun...



And hey - the card I did for the color challenge on Tuesday also used a heat gun with layers of EP to make cracked glass - here it is...


As you can see, I use my heat gun all the time! :)

tayloredexpressions 06-08-2006 09:02 AM

*eeks* I called in late to work so I could make this!! Here's mine... my first attempt at a triple challenge card!


DawnL 06-08-2006 09:02 AM

got 2 done Julia! I do use my heat tool a lot!! thanks for taking the time to do this for us;)



rainy 06-08-2006 09:08 AM

Okay here's mine. Had a heck of a time trying to take a picture of the cracked glass without so much glare that you could actually see the image. Oh well....

Best I could do!

WT64 Celebrate You

Well, this challenge turned out to be, for me, a bit more complex than I am sure you intended. I decided to finally give Joseph's Coat Technique a try. The first one was a bust and ended in the trash but the 2nd one was passable enough to post. I didn't have a multi-colored ink pad so DD told me about using Reinkers and BabyWipes.

Dawn and I decided it's a good thing we have cordless phones and don't have to pay long distance fees since we spent our stamping time this morning talking to each other and being frustrated together. Isn't having a daughter a wonderful thing?

Thanx for the challenge. It's one for my book!:o

dawnmercedes 06-08-2006 09:39 AM

Took too long froggies:


I'm getting a speaker phone so my neck doesn't get a crick in it while chatting/stamping via the phone with Gremhog.

dpierstamper 06-08-2006 09:40 AM

I used the heat gun to emboss and heat treat the ribbon on my card.
Golden Christmas Tree
Have another idea for later--

Julesiana 06-08-2006 09:46 AM

I learned a LOT on this one--MUCH trial and MUCH error!

Anyway here is the finished product:
