You could also emboss with the Versamarker - you could have a child write his/her name with the Versamarker and emboss it to preserve the child's handwriting on a page. I think the Versamarker and a Versamark ink pad are two things every stamper/scrapbooker should have in her stash.
We also heat embossed on acetate and cut it out and layered it on a shadow image. The little snowflake that looks like a pinwheel to the bottom right of the page is the acetate snowflake and it's shadow, held together with a rhinestone brad. I didn't get a close up of that element, but it looks really neat. You can't see the effect in the photo.
