Technique – dry embossing

Featuring dry embossing

Forget-me-not hello

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

When I started on this card, I knew I wanted to use an embossing folder for the bottom part of the sketch, but apart from that, I just let my recent supplies lead the way! I flicked through my recent purchases and decided that it was most definitely time to use the beautiful Forget-Me-Not botanicut die set from The Greetery that I finally got hold of last month. I used a stamp from the Taylored Expressions Abstract Accents set and a Simon Says Stamp embossing folder. It wasn’t the one that I had intended to use, but I actually don’t think I’ve bought the particular folder that I had in mind!! The sentiment is by Memory Box.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 27 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

When I saw the sketch I thought ‘SNOWFLAKES’! Time to get those dies working! I used three dies by Simon Says Stamp (Alicia, Rylann and Kate), together with the Filigree Snowflakes embossing folder, also by Simon. The sentiment is by Penny Black.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 25

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 25 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in The Paper Players sketch challenge.

I’m continuing to work my way through my new Simon Says Stamp embossing folders – today’s card uses the beautiful Holiday Greenery folder, together with dies from Waffle Flower’s new Layered Winter Bird die set. There are a few medium-sized cardinal sets around at the moment and I’m loving this little guy!

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 24

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 24 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Once again this month, I’m doing something I rarely seem to do – sharing a card that I created without a challenge in mind!

I started by using the fabulous Sizzix 3D Christmas Trees folder. I think this is one of my favourite Christmas folders! I love the detail and all the quirky little trees!

For the focal point tree, I used an older Poppystamps die to cut the tree from white cardstock and then embossed it using a folder that I’d brayered with Rustic Wilderness distress oxide ink. I added some stickles over the white embossing.

The sentiment is from a set by My Favorite Things.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 23

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 23 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Just Add Ink sketch challenge.

I picked up a few 3D embossing folders from Simon Says Stamp a few weeks ago and they arrived yesterday – I couldn’t wait to play with them! The thing is, they are just so beautiful, I can never bring myself to cover up the embossing! So today’s card is pretty simple – the Christmas Floral embossing folder is the star and die cuts by Poppystamps, Savvy Stamps and Simply Graphic make up the supporting cast!

Thanks for stopping by!
