Embossing action

Hi everyone. I made this card quick quite quickly. I first took an embossing folder from Sizzix and embossed the blue paper. I then inked the embossed part using some faded jeans ink. I then took this wonderful digi image and used some copics on top in the center of the flower to help it stand out a bit. I layered it up using some spellbinders circle dies. I added some word stickers to the bottom corner and some blue bling in both top left and bottom right corners. I think these simple cards and quite a joy to make and look good too.

Thanks and a butterfly

Hey everyone. It is funny how we keep so much paper and sometimes forget to use it! Also for the Belli Challenge, I have also forgotten I had the bling that went on the butterfly. I made his this card using spellbinders dies and layered up the butterfly, from the butterfly garden collection. I then cut some strips of co-ordinating paper from that paper line and just made some arrowed edges. I used a rub on "thank you" to the bottom strip. Lastly I added some bling to the side of the card as well as on the butterfly.

Embossed and embossed

Hey, today I made this card for the Compendium of Curiosities challenge 29. I started out by embossing the black paper with the spellbinders M-bossibilities EL-017. I love that look it gives. It totally fits with Tim Holtz!!! Then I Embossed the "Enjoy the journey" and on the screws around the sentiment. (where the screws go from the embossing folder) I then die cut 2 gears suing Tim Holtz's die and then embossed them. I added this great brad from Bo Bunny and then attached it to the card using Tim's tiny attacher! I wanted to black out the staples, so I used my copic black and coloured the staples. For the inside I wanted to keep the flow to the card, so I placed black card stock inside and then layered it with the kraft card stock on top. I stamped the birds on one, inked around the edges and placed another piece of kraft near the bottom for the writer to write to their recipient. Lastly I embossed the "it's all perspective" and then this one was done!

White Embossed Thank You

Hi all! It has been a busy few weeks and sick kids! Finally I am back able to do my thing! Today I made this wonderful card using a lot of spellbinders. I used the M_Bossabilities ES-004 to creative this embossed card. I used some pink glitter paper to add some sparkle and I used an edge die from spellbinders to create the design. I took a 1/2 inch piece of the glitter paper and scored it all the way down at 1/4 inch. I then folded it over and then stitched it down. I like this look! For the flower I layered 2 flowers and then used the spellbinders set (ironworks) and made the die cuts that are behind the flower. Lastly I did my sentiment and adhered it all to the card! For the inside, I wanted to keep it simple. I used more of the same paper from the front and put it inside to keep the flow going.
