July Card Challenge - Heat Embossing

Our lovely sponsor this month is Marion Emberson of Sugar & Spice Crafts.
Marion's challenge to us this month - heat embossing - so get those (heat) guns drawn and we'll meet at dawn!
From Marion:
"A little bit about me ......
From a child I was always making things, from clothes to a mess !!! I love taking something in the raw and transforming it, When I had a young family I embarked on a handmade curtain course, this satisfied my making passion for a while, but this then lead on to soft furnishings and children's furnishings, mainly hand painted toy boxes and wish boxes etc, to make them different I used to stamp and emboss onto them and make them all glittery, this is where Sugar and Spice Crafts was born, in September 2003 I opened the shop and not only sold the hand made products but also sold the products I used on them and gave tuition to others wanting to do it for themselves, I started to make cards to go with the boxes and then the love of papercraft was born !!!
I no longer hand paint children's furniture, but the shop has become one of the leading paper craft stores in the South East, I pride myself on our knowledge and expertise, if we haven't "played" with it, it doesn't go in the shop, it was this "expertise" that lead me to a position as a guest presenter on QVC, that was at the beginning of January 2011 and still continues, I also design stamps for one of the UK's leading distributors, Personal Impressions, under the name Marion Emberson Designs, I also got involved with WOW Embossing Powders, they are absolute experts in their field, I get to teach for them at the NEC twice a year and this year I went out to Ohio to film for them on Scrapbook Soup TV for their launch in the States. I will also be demonstrating for them at CHA in July, all in all I have been able to combine a passion with making a living and I cherish everyday."
