Embossing ( and just a die cut)

Leave a comment

_MG_4592 (Medium)This is a card that I taught at paper Flourish a couple of months ago. We did a set of three cards all relying on embossing and die cutting with pastel colours. The die I have used is a Seven paper Dolls die which will be available to purchase  from our webstore when it has it’s grand opening on the 1st of May. It has been a busy and exciting time getting the web store up and running and we see the finish line in our sights! The sentiment die is from kaisercraft as are the embossing folders I used. I stuck a row of flowers across the join I had created by combining two different embossed pieces of cardstock. I have always loved pastel colours and the three cards we created in class are favourites of mine. I have rediscovered embossing folders recently, they are an undervalued piece of cardmaking equipment in my opinion!  I have spent a little time today in the craft room creating some June lessons, but really it has been a lazy and relaxing day off. Til tomorrow…..

IMG_1173 (Medium)For these two cards I used a couple of different papers in the October Afternoon farm girl range. I fussy cut the flowers out of one sheet, and teamed them up with the gingham papers and dots papers. I die cut a spellbinders scalloped rectangle, and used the resulting frame ( the rectangle will appear on another card soon) and added buttons, ric rac, seam binding, bakers twine, and a bit of bling and kindyglitz to finish. the end of the working week for me , and a couple of days off to play with my new hexagon spellbinders and embossing folders – can’t wait! Til tomorrow….

I hope all my american friends had a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Todays card uses some very old paper ( I think it’s daisy D’s) which I found in the back of a cupboard whilst looking for something else..and I gave my cuttlebug a workout as well. Here’s the list – Stampin Up – Pink pirouette, crumbcake, and whisper white cardstock, curly cute sentiment,ribbon , brad,and party blossom die.The rest – a circle punch, and spellbinders Picot edge circles and Classic edges 2 edgeabilities. Speaking of  which, a couple of posts down I loved a border that I used but couldn’t remember what it was – well there it is –  Spellbinders Edgeabilities classic edges 2 die . So glad I rediscovered it, and will be giving it a workout this weekend!I had a lovely morning teaching a class at Paper flourish,and while I was there I bought some Prismacolor pencils so I will be experimenting with them this weekend too, so plenty to keep me busy! Til tomorrow…
