I’m on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today with this beautiful card. Stop by and see how I created it ….
Embossing the Possibilities
This month’s challenge on Scrap It Girl is to use embossing folders … or, if you don’t have any, pre-embossed paper.
I wanted to show off a couple of techniques, so I made a card.
I started with Shimmer Sheetz in blue, red and silver.
For the background, I embossed blue Shimmer Sheetz with the Bouquet embossing folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Then, I sanded the top, which made parts of it clear. I mounted this to a white cardstock base.
Next, I cut flowers out of both silver and red Shimmer Sheetz using dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs and a metal adaptor plate.
I used the dotted folder (also from ECD) to emboss the silver flower. Then, I swiped a StazOn ink pad over the top to color the raised dots.
I added a little ribbon, and the card is done … simple, but detailed!
Now it is your turn. Create a project with embossing folders and share your link at Scrap It Girl. You could win some fabulous prizes!
My husband recently celebrated his 43rd birthday. This is the card I made for him ….
To see how I made this card, visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Blog … I am featured today!
By the way, Matt & I did take a ride to celebrate his birthday … to Clarkston, a town neither of us had ever been to before. He wanted to try the Union Woodshop, an award-winning restaurant that was featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” and a favorite hangout of Kid Rock.
The food was amazing … I had pulled pork, smashed sweet potatoes and greens. Matt had the “non-burger” burger (he says a burger must have beef) made with pulled pork, homemade spicy sausages and homemade smoked maple bacon that was featured on the TV show.
I cannot wait to scrapbook the rest of the photos from his birthday dinner. It was a nice spur-of-the-moment trip.
Look what I did with Maya Road!
Products released during CHA last January are finally hitting the scrapbook stores and I’ve been playing.
I have created plenty of nifty embellishments, but have yet to complete any projects.
So, I thought I would share this one with you …
This is one of the Vintage Alterable Beads by Maya Road. They come in two sizes.
I used Staz-On Black Ink and a Hero Arts Background Stamp to stamp this design onto the back of the bead.
When it dried, I applied Art Glitter in two different colors to the pattern.
I love the finished result … just have to figure out what to attach it to!
Then, I made this …
This is also from Maya Road — It is a Resin Blossom that also comes in two sizes — this is the smaller of the two.
I added Butterscotch Alcohol Ink and some Solar Glass Beads from Art Glitter to the middle. This one is attached to a project I will share in a few days …
Do you have ideas for these two new products from Maya Road? I’d love to see what you create.
