Technique – dry embossing

Featuring dry embossing

Day 10 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year!

The Day 10 sponsor was Simon Says Stamp. Now, I have a LOT of Simon Says Stamp goodies and absolutely adored Shari’s amazing inspiration that she shared on the SSS blog. Here is my take using a Gemini embossing folder, snowflake dies by SSS and a Penny Black sentiment. I even got a chance to use those over-looked Prima flowers and a few pearls!

Happy thoughts of autumn

Hi Everyone!

Next up today is what I created for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

What a fun sketch! Loved seeing all the creative inspiration over at the challenge blog and in the end I decided to use my favourite My Monthly Hero kit. It’s from September 2018 but I didn’t actually buy it until earlier this year – I was so happy to be able to purchase it so many months after it went on sale!

I coloured the little images with my Twinkling H2Os (just look at that shimmer!) before adhering them to an embossed panel. I added a sentiment from Mama Elephant to finish off my card.

Hello Bootiful!

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

When I saw the sketch, I thought of my Poppy Stamps Stick Frames die. It didn’t really work exactly with the sketch so I cut up the frames and arranged them separately on my card. The ghosts are from the Friendly Ghosts set by Memory Box and the sentiment is my My Favorite Things.

I embossed the background using a Creative Expressions folder.

Hello Cosmos

Hello friends!

Happy World Cardmaking day!

I’ve been battling a migraine so couldn’t make much today, although I did create this card, using the beautiful Cosmos Stem die from Simon Says Stamp.

I coloured the die cuts with my Twinkling H2Os following the fabulous palette from the Color Throwdown Challenge this week – orange. lavender, purple and green.

I added it to a background that I’d dry embossed using a Taylored Expressions folder and adhered a SSS die cut to complete my card.

Merry Whittle Penguins

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Case This Sketch challenge

I used my newest cute Christmas dies – the Whittle Penguins by Poppystamps, a background stamp and couple of dies from My Favorite Things and a Mama Elephant sentiment stamp. The Embossing Folder is by Taylored Expressions.

Bright sunflowers

Hello friends!

I’m finally back at my craft table after a short break and decided to play along with one of my favourite challenges and my brand new set of dies, the BotaniCuts sunflower dies from The Greetery. Such a great set!

Anyway, I thought they would be perfect for the gorgeous colour palette over at the Color Throwdown Challenge this week – navy, mustard, coral and cream.

I created a few inky backgrounds from my Distress Oxide inks and then used them for my sunflowers. I embossed a navy panel with a folder that I picked up in JoAnns, adhered the flowers and then added a Simon Says Stamp sentiment and a few gems to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
