We are heading out of town tomorrow and boy did I try to get some stampin' in before we leave!!!
My first card is for today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC71 Challenge!!! Our host is Cindy Haffner and she is challenging us to *EMBOSSING*. There are a lot of different types of embossing options to choose from, such as heat, stencil, plates, folders, scoring, textured die cuts, and more. In addition, there are many different techniques to combined with embossing. You can also use anything from vellum, clear cardstock, or other textures for your embossed projects. We would love to see what you all create!!!
This is the card I made last week already, when I confused the challenges...oops!!! I used the fab layout from last weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch # 72 ( I flipped it)!!! The super gorgeous blossom and sentiment is from the Cherry Blossoms Set. I inked both in Versamark and heat embossed them with Black Embossing Powder. I colored the blossom with various Copic Markers - R000, R00, Y15, G24 and Colorless Blender. The white panel was dry embossed with the Linen & Canvas Impression Template. The So Saffron DP was also dryembossed with the Elegant Bouquet Folder. I finished the card off with some Black/White Checker Ribbon and some Silver Pearls!!!
Please make sure to check out Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's blog for their ideas!!!
My second card is for this weeks CAS71 ~ Things That Fly and this weeks FS175 - LeAnne Pugliese. Congrats LeAnne...your gallery and blog are filled with so many gorgeous creations and I chose to case this CAS card. I switched the layout to this weeks Sweet Sweet Sunday Sketch #73.
I changed the image to the fabulous newly released Humming Along Set....isn't it fabulous!?! The colors were changed to Green and Red. The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ R27, R29, R000, YR91, Y17, B35, G00, G21, G24 and Colorless Blender. I added some scoring to the Green CS, a double tied Red/White Checker Ribbon and some Silver Pearl on the side.
Thank you so much for swinging by today!!! I'll see you again next week when it's my turn to host the FTTC!!!
I have my awesome new i-Pad with me...so I don't miss your fabbo creations!!! Have fun playing!!!
