Embedded embossing….


IMG_0683 (Medium)I have stopped the wedding cards just for today, because Nathan has uploaded a new youtube video for me , so I thought I would show this card explaining what my video is all about. I fussy cut a few images out of some patterned paper ( it’s kaisercraft sail away) , stuck them randomly on some plain white cardstock and then ran the card through an embossing folder. When it has been run through the big shot/cuttlebug etc… it looks like the paper is printed onto the card – you can’t see any raised bits..(hope that makes sense). After some experimenting I found that embossing folders that are pretty well covered in design work best.back to wedding cards tomorrow!  til tomorrow….

IMG_7231 (Medium)This one is a favourite because I got to use so much lace ! I wrapped it around the dress image I had fussy cut from a piece of the patterned paper ( my minds eye fancy that),and also fussy cut the mans suit as well. I am back in the craft room, just for short visits, but it’s amazing how much better I feel when i have been in there! til tomorrow…..

IMG_7232 (Medium)My second wedding card made with my Minds eye fancy that. Lots of lace, and gold thread here, and the heart is fussy cut from one of the journalling cards. I always look at the journalling cards first, and if there are any that won’t make a suitable card topper they get fussy cut up into pieces I will use. Nothing is wasted with the journalling cards!Til tomorrow…..

IMG_7237 (Medium)A complete change from christmas cards… wedding cards! The paper collection is My Minds Eye Fancy that, and I have half a dozen celebration type cards to show over the next few days. This paper is foiled, so didn’t need much embellishing – the journalling cards that go with the collection are great for toppers, and all I added to this one was some gold string/twine..this card is for our friends wedding this weekend( I may miss it due to the whole knee thing, but the rest of my family will go).I have gathered my supplies for my January classes and all ready to head into the craft room, I am ok as long as I stop each hour and elevate the leg for equivelant time so it’s getting much better! Today is a terribly hot windy dusty day here, and I am glad I am inside! til tomorrow…..

IMG_7245 (Medium)IMG_7246 (Medium)Todays cards are made with graphic 45 A christmas carol – this is graphic 45 ‘s papers for this year, and I have only made a few cards with this collection, It comes out too late in the year for me to use it – I will keep the bulk of it to start me off next year. I added lace, ribbon and gold twine to finish these ones. I managed to sit for a short while in the craft room today, so prepared some cards for januarys lesson – next years lesson already!!
