Double Embossing

NOTICE: It looks like we’re having a bit of trouble with our InLinkz Link-up on our blog.  It seems to have a mind of its own and disappeared from the side-bar.  However, it found a home on the first day of March here.  The DT are trying to put it back where it came from, but until you see it in the usual place on the top right side, you’ll be able to enter here.

Hi there.  Dawn here to inspire you with some embossing.  I chose to do some dry embossing using some of my folders.  I also used a diffuser to do some double embossing.  I made my embossing the focus of my card and finished with a Hero Arts sentiment.

I used the difuser to emboss the swirl background and then again for the second frame folder by Inside Out by Teapaper Crafts. I stamped the sentiment from CL738 “Messages with a Flourish”.  Please note this stamp set is no longer available, but check out some of the fabulous sentiment stamps available at the A2Z Scrapbooking Esty store (here)  I finished off my card with some daisies and a dragonfly brad.

New Baby

Hi there crafty friends… for our challenge – New Beginnings I have a New Baby card to share with you.

New BabyAren’t these the cutest little toys.  Last month I took part in Online Card Classes, Mask-erade class, so put into practice one of the techniques I learned.  I stamped the owl first and then made a mask out of Post It tape before stamping the fox and bunny. These stamps are from this set.   I used some Copics to colour them in.   My background was made with this stamp  I white embossed it before using some Distress inks (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire) to sponge on.   I finished off with a die cut and matching sentiments from this set    I die cut the Congrats in white and then once I stuck it on, went round the edge with a black maker.  I white embossed the rest of the sentiment onto the blue card.

New Baby 2My second card combines some WPlus9 stamps and dies with Hero Arts stamps and Dies.  Once again I used the Congrats  die and stamp set.  The background was watercoloured with Derwent Inktense pencils, as was the baby elephant and the balloons.  The die cuts on the balloons are from Alphabet Uppercase dies (currently not available in our shop but you can CUSTOM Order it in the Store. Just click on the REQUEST CUSTOM ORDER form on the store HOME Page!)
