Embossing is fun, but double embossing is even more fun! Ink up your embossing folder with Versamark, emboss as normal in your Big Shot, and then add your embossing powder and heat. I want to redo this one and use plain card stock and a vintage brad for my flower as I think it would look better that way. Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes Ink: Versamark, Basic Black Paper: First Edition DSP, Brights Designer Paper stack, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Rich Razzleberry Accessories: black embossing powder, Rich Razzleberry ribbon, neutrals jumbo brads Tools: scallop circle punches, 1/2 inch circle punch, Blossom Petals punch, Big Shot, heat tool, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder
How about a different card fold? This is a pocket fold card and it is super easy to do. I decorated it with all the fun nautical items from the Summer Mini Catalog. Stamps: The Open Sea, Teeny Tiny Wishes Ink: Not Quite Navy Paper: Riding Hood Red, Naturals White, Not Quite Navy, Nautical Expedition DSP Tools: circle punches, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, scallop edge border punch
Faux mother-of-pearl is one of my favorite new techniques. I love the aged look that it adds to a card. Erica's lovely card was the inspiration for this card. Stamps: Nature Walk, Teeny Tiny Wishes Ink: Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Staz on black Paper: Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, glossy white Accessories: Frost White Shimmer Paint Tools: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, sponges, plastic wrap
And just for fun:
Here's a card using the fun new set, Button Buddies. Pardon the crooked image; I was just too excited to get ink on my new toy!
