Christmas in August!

Here we are, the home stretch to the BEST time of year, CHRISTMAS CARD CREATING!  Oh yeah, and I guess Christmas itself is pretty great too, but I have to admit that having an excuse to collect more than my fair share of Christmas Stamps and Christmas paper and of course Christmas STENCILS, is by far my favorite pastime!  So here is my first card for this months Challenge...

I used the Molten magic Technique on my Small Ornament Stencil LM-297 because I'm totally in LOVE with how easy the Molten magic technique is!  I used Gold Embossing Paste first, and with the stencil still on the image, sprinkled Metallic F/X Copper, Amber Glow, and Kiwi randomly over the paste.  Then I removed the stencil and heated the image with my heat gun allowing the paste to melt and pop.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how fast and easy this is, and everyone asks how I did it!
