Consider the Lilies

There's a fun technique challenge over on the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge blog this month!  
I was intrigued as I don't think I have ever heard of Layered Stamping with Heat Embossing??!! 
I used the technique Jennifer McGuire shows on this video that was linked to over on the CAS Mix Up Blog:  Layered Heat Embossing.  There are other links posted at CAS Mix Up as well.
I just purchased the older PTI stamp and die sets called Lilies of the Field and it just happened to have 4 stamps for each lily - so it was perfect for this challenge!
 I die cut the lily and stem out of kraft card.  I white embossed the first layer of stamp, then I used yellow on the 2nd layer and tree branch on the third little center piece there.   I stamped the final stamp (the stamens) in black ink .
I die cut the PTI oval frame out of Kraft card as well as a dotted vellum (the inside of the circle - can you see the dots?  It's pretty subtle.).   I gold embossed the sentiment from Garden of Faith Sentiments.  I popped up the outside frame as well as the lily blossom on foam dots.
ETA:  Another photo I took with my phone in the sunlight - hopefully showing the dotted vellum?!

Inside I stamped:  
& how much more he cares for you - from the Lilies of the Field set
HAPPY Easter -  from  Easter Alleluias 

So this was a fun new technique learned and now I want to try it out with other stamps I have that have multiple layers!

Beautiful neutrals in this medallion card, and such elegance too! Layered stamping is tricky, but you’ve done this lily proud, bravo!

This technique really intrigues me. I love the effect you got with the delicate Lilly and that perfect frame.

Perfect timing to receive your layered lily stamp set, Julia. Your stamp layering and heat embossing turned out perfect on your lily! Great work! I love the kraft oval frame. Can't see the dots on the vellum, but can imagine how pretty it is in real life. Isn't it fun learning all these new techniques??!! xx

What a lovely lily you made, using the layered heat-embossing technique, Julia! I'm so impressed that you layered FOUR beautifully in such tiny space!! I would have melted the first and/or second layers by the time I layer the 4th one. (I know because I did it...)
Great choice of the background - the sublet dotted vellum adds interest and elegance. I always enjoy seeing your cards in the CAS Mix Up gallery!
