Stain Glass Tractor- Friday Favorites

Hello and welcome to my Friday Favorite post. My favorite item right now seems to be my Heat Tool. I know you are thinking but it has been around forever, which is true but I have been using like crazy for all my embossing projects and techniques that seem to be ever so popular right now. Today's card uses the Stain Glass Technique which I taught this month in my Tech Time Class. I think the Harvest Blessings Stamp Set is just perfect for this technique and with the cooler temps I can't help but think about harvesting. To tractor is heat embossed with the Heat Tool and Black Embossing Powder on Vellum and then you use the Stampin' Write Markers on the back to color in the image. I used the Labels Collection Framelits to cut out both the Vellum, the Whisper White Card Stock that goes behind and the frame. I also used the Big Shot to add texture to the background card stock which consists of the Cajun Craze that I used the Square Lattice Embossing folder on and the Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock that I used the Woodgrain Embossing Folder on before I sanded it. The sentiment is also from the set and is stamped with the Cajun Craze on Crumb Cake and I added just a bit of Linen Thread.. 

While I am sharing the Heat Tool with you I must tell you a bit about a class project that I helped my 6th grader with yesterday. He had a book report to do and it was a poster but he needed to have texture on the poster. So he collected some sand and with the help of our Heat Tool and our Heat and Stick Powder we were able to add a sandy exterior to one of his buildings on the poster. I wasn't sure how successful we would be but the Heat and Stick Powder and the Heat Tool came through and the sand was securely attached. I have added a picture below.

 I also have a card to share with you on Monday that uses the Heat Tool and our Heat and Stick Powder. I hope you enjoyed today's card and please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks and have a great day, Tonya
