Welcome to the Technique TuesdayBlogHop.

Technique Tuesday Blog
We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world that love to share what they do.  This week our theme is Heat Embossing Techniques.  Anyone that follows me,  knows that I LOVE  this technique.  It is actually what got me hooked on the this amazing craft of Stampin!

The idea is to show a technique using Heat Embossing.  I am actually showing 2 techniques.  The main technique is called Black Ice.  Here is my card,  I will make sure that I give you the supply list below.
