I have three cards to show you this evening plus some dry embossing that I also found time to do.
I decided that I really should have some embossed card ready & to hand rather than just embossing it when I needed it. So I have used 4 different background embossing folders & one frame folder. I also decided white card was the thing to go for so that I could colour to suit what I might use it for & with.
This tulip stamp is from Stamps Away & the Happy Birthday I have had for years. For this card I decided to use one of the frame embossed sheets. I need to practice a bit more with adding colour by gently swiping the pad across the card, because on this one I did get a couple of bad smudges. But managed to cover them!!!!!!!
I have had this little petal shaped card for sometime & really couldn't think what to do with it. I thought I would try using this pretty green background paper & drew around the card to get the complimentary shape on the paper. It just needed trimming on the straight edges to make it a little smaller to leave a border.
I really like the effect of this embossing folder & in fact the reverse makes a very nice pattern as well.
I hadn't intended to make quite as large a border of colour around the edge. My heavy hand again I think - but I am still pleased with the result.
Each of the tulip sprays were stamped in Forest Moss Distress Ink & then coloured in with - Picked Raspberry & Mustard Seed. when the inks were dry & pressed a Versamark Ink Pad onto them & covered with clear EP then heated them. Each tulip spray was then cut out leaving a white margin & attached to the cards with sticky pads.
Not a bad days work. I hope I can keep it up.
'Bye for now - thank you for stopping by.
