Technique – dry embossing

Featuring dry embossing

Meadow Rue

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with colour challenge at The Paper Players.

Unfortunately, I haven’t had much crafty time this week so I ended up putting this card together just before the challenge deadline! Just made it! Phew!

I used a beautiful older die called Meadow Rue by Simon Says Stamp which I coloured with Distress Oxides. I adhered it to a panel embossed with a Taylored Expressions embossing folder and added a sentiment by Memory Box.

Pastel birthday wishes

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the ‘Can You Handle the Pressure‘ challenge where the twist is pastels.

I’ve been wanting to use my beautiful Cherry Blossom Darice folder again this spring but haven’t got around to it – until now! I created an inky panel using Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink and embossed it. I added some stickles into the centre of the flowers.

I added a sprig from Spellbinders’ Be Bold Blooms die set and a Pretty Pink Posh sentiment to complete my card.

Vintage foiled egg

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the ‘Can You Handle the Pressure‘ challenge where the twist is Easter.

My original plan was to create a large vintage foiled egg with a WRMK embossing folder. But then I was concerned that the challenge would expect us to also include an embossed background… so I pulled out the Pebble embossing folder by Carabelle Studio again!

Then I felt that the card STILL needed something extra so I added a vellum sprig cut from the Sylvan Sprig by Poppystamps.

Finally I added a Memory Box sentiment to complete my card.

Embracing Green

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the ‘Can You Handle the Pressure‘ challenge where the twist is green. Have I mentioned how much I love this challenge! It’s fabulous to actually use my collection of embossing folders!

As Easter is fast approaching, I decided to incorporate that into my card. I chose the Pebble embossing folder by Carabelle Studio because I always think it looks like eggs! (On that note, why are there NO Easter embossing folders??? I tried to get one that Darice made a few years ago but apart from that I don’t think I have seen any others… quite odd really!).

I decided to incorporate green by adding foliage to a die cut egg. However, after I had die cut the My Favorite Things Fab Foliage dies, I decided to switch things up a bit! I die cut an egg which I then coloured green with my Distress Oxide inks and then adhered the white die cuts!

Embracing Plaid

Hello again Everyone!

So I wasn’t going to play along with the ‘Can You Handle the Pressure‘ challenge this past fortnight as the twist is plaid. I don’t have much plaid patterned paper and couldn’t think of a ‘LucieG’ way of using it! Then this evening inspiration struck! Luckily there were still a few hours before the challenge closed and this was a really quick make!

I used the Stampin’ Up Brick and Mortar embossing folder and added the Simon Says Stamp Stars Parade die cut. I inlaid plaid, green and glitter stars and then added a little My Favorite Things sentiment.

Daffodil Wreath

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at The Paper Players.

I love that one of the colours this week is called ‘Daffodil Delight’ and so I just had to include them in my card! My new Marianne Designs daffodil die arrived this morning so I jumped at the chance to play with it straight away. I paired it with a Honey Bee Stamps Grapevine die that I cut twice. All die cuts are coloured with distress ink.

I used an older WRMK 3D embossing folders – I always think of these as the original 3D embossing folders, they really took embossing folders to the next level!

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from an older set by Neat & Tangled.

Thanks for stopping by!
