Welcome to my blog … It’s time to hop with the amazing Creating Kindness Design Team. The theme of the hop this month is “teamwork” … interpreted in any way we like! Our guest designer this month is the very talented Anna Krol. Check out Anna’s work on her blog here.
Playing with Embossing Folders
Last fortnight, I set my VIP customers and team members a challenge to create a project using Embossing Folders in a different way. We used last months Creating Kindness embossing technique as our inspiration.
Today, I have used the same Tin Tile embossing folder, for a completely different look.
Tin Tile Embossing Folder
This time, I have very lightly sponged the embossed piece of card with Gray Granite ink, then sponged a layer of Frost White Shimmer Paint over the Gray Granite Ink.
Snowfall Thinlits Dies
The wreath has been created with two of the large snowflakes from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies, and a quantity of leaf dies from the same set, die cut from Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green cardstock.
Those delicious baubles are created by colouring Faceted Gems and Epoxy Dots with Stampin’ Blends.
The Christmas Blessings greeting is from Christmas Pines Stamp Set, stamped in Merry Merlot. It is layered over a nesting of Gold Mini Sequins and some Silver and Petal Pink Bakers Twine.
The bow is created with the Vanilla ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack.
Inks and Whimsy Team
My Stampin’ Up! team are a wonderful bunch of very talented ladies! I am consistently delighted with the challenge entries every month. Here are just a few projects created for the Embossing Folder Challenge.
Colleen has used the Corrugated Embossing Folder and the Making Christmas Bright stamp set and Christmas Light Builder Punch to create this fantastic Christmas Card. Colleen embossed a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Corrugated folder and sponged it with the Copper Shimmer Paint. You can see more of Colleen’s work on her blog, Colleen’s Cards.
Jodie is a regular guest designer on my blog. She has used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and inked the folder up with Versamark before embossing the Whisper White Cardstock. She has then applied White Embossing Powder to the embossed card and heated to melt. She has then sponged the embossed piece with Basic Gray ink. Jodie has used the Vertical Greetings stamp set for the topiary tree. So very pretty.
Mary has also used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder. Using the same technique of applying Versamark ink to the folder before embossing the Whisper White Cardstock, and then applying White Embossing Powder to the embossed piece and heating, Mary has created a delightful Christmas card. She has used Mint Macaron ink to sponge the Tin Tile Embossed piece and the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and co-ordinating dies in Christmas colours.
Sharryn has created a stunning card using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and the First Frost Stamp Set. Sharryn applied Soft Seafoam ink to the inside of the embossing folder before running her Whisper White cardstock inside the folder through the Big Shot. How pretty is this?!
Here is a close up of this gorgeous card.
I am so proud and honoured to have such a talented group of ladies in my team. They are so generous with sharing their ideas and I learn so much from them every month.
Next up in the hop is the fabulous and talented paper artist, Marcy Denning from the USA. Her project is a must see!
