Good Afternoon! Since I skipped last week, I thought I would try to get to the Blog Hop party this week. That is what I call our What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday. You can read about it on Julia's Stamping Ground, if you don't know what it is.
First, I want to share with you a new Embossing Folder Technique that I am pretty excited about. Maybe you already know it, but I didn't until this week. I kept seeing these cards and could't figure out how they made it look 3-d. So, I finally took time to read instructions shared by a fellow stamper on Splitcoast Stamper. 1. I inked up the Woodland Embossing Folder from Su! with Soft sky ink. I put it on with a brayer. The important thing you need to know is you ink up the inside on the side that has the Sizzix on it. (inside the top) 2. I stamped my Lovely as a Tree trees on the same side I brayered. 3. I inserted cardstock and rolled it through the Big Shot. It is like magic! The green trees are behind the trees on your folder. So cool! To make the rest of the card, I mounted it on a Mossy Green panel, then on a Soft Sky base. I stamped the Verve Bible verse on Whisper White, and punched out with a label punch. I punched a green label and split it and put it under the verse panel. I stamped the fox and water colored him and fussy cut him and mounted him; the same with the bird. This card is for an encouragement card for a dear friend. It also worked for the following challenges:
Divine Bible Verse Challenge, Stamp 2 Spend Challenge, January Fan Club Forrest Friends Central Theme and Word Theme Challenges, USEIT2016 Challenge ( all challenges on Splitcoast Stampers)
This is what my desk looks like right now. I haven't put things away from making my card. And I found these hearts and decided to lay them out in case I might want to use them in the next few weeks. And on top of my marker/pad/refill storage is a orphan stamp. Don't know what it belongs to, but left it there. Sooner or later it will become apparent where it belongs.
I better publish this as it is already late afternoon on Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by! Hope to visit you, too.
