Embossing - I love it!!

I am super excited about some projects I worked on over the weekend as I was traveling! I especially love my embossing project! I have had pigment inks, embossing powder, and a heat gun forever; but I just never had the time to play around with these tools. Boy have I been missing out!

Check out my first card and envelope that I embossed this weekend!


I used a Studio G $1 stamp for the "Fall Colors" title and the leaf on the envelope along with Versamark's Watermark Ink Pad and Ranger Embossing powder in Red. I don't know who the basket stamp is designed by; however I love the Zing brown embossing powder that I used along with Verasamark's Watermark Ink Pad!

The leaves "falling" out of the basket are Primas I bought years ago. I also used some clearance silver brads on the basket. The striped paper is clearance paper that didn't have the designer's brand on it and the card is made from Coredinations paper.

Even though I hate the fact that the Summer has went by so fast, I love Fall and I definitely love the fall colors! Can't wait to make more embossed items and post them! Hope you enjoy!

Awareness Ribbon Artist Trading Cards (ATC)

It's been over six months since I've been involved in a swap on the Cricut Message Board, so I thought it was about time I got my creative "groove" back on! This is the first Artist Trading Card I have ever made. They are small (2.5" x 3.5") pieces of art that are made to share. I think this would be really cute to add to the front of a card and share with someone you love and want to remind to have their annual breast exam done. I intend to make more of these and make some notecard sets for the Breast Cancer Awareness Walk Kick-off/Breakfast that is scheduled in August.

I'm pretty happy with my first ATC - hope you enjoy!
