Mother's Day Card with Eileen Hull

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It was warm and sunny here, downright hot! Of course the temperature is going to drop 30 degrees by the end of the week and rain is coming. That's okay though, it will be good for my garden. =) I made this card for my mother
-in-law using Eileen's dies and her NEW Molten Dimensions embossing powders from Emerald Creek. They are pretty fabulous!

They are chunky and you get really good coverage and dimension. I discovered that I can use my Melting Pot to easily make all the embossed die cut elements. (The Ranger Melting Pot was designed by Suze Weinberg and they were sadly discontinued a few years ago. You might have one in your craft stash already or be able to find one used on eBay etc.)

I die cut the flowers and word, inked them with Eileen's clear (super sticky!) Blends Ink, applied the powder and set it into the pre-heated pot to melt. (It doesn't take long!) I had these non-stick inserts with side flaps that were made to fit into the tray which made it really easy to remove the melted die cut. I just lifted the liner out and let it cool off to the side before handling it. You could do the same thing with a folded piece of foil or paper.

Thanks for stopping by! Check out Eileen's blog and if you are not already a member, join the Facebook Eileen Hull Fan Club group. It is a warm, supportive group with lots of inspiration and sharing going on. You'll just have to answer a few simple questions when asking to join (to keep out spammers) and then you'll be added. ;-)

  1. Oh thanks for the melting hint Lisa! I do have a melting pot in my craft room - thank goodness I don't throw much away! I've seen it done with electric pans and pancake griddles too - but this is great for the small stuff! xx


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate it!
