More Fun Cards with Embossing Folders

Hello Dreamers!
Happy Wednesday!  Just popping in this morning before heading out for the day. Finally getting my hair cut this afternoon. You may remember that I moved in Oct of 2015.  So, still trying to find a hair stylist.  Harder than finding a doctor.  LOL  I have crazy curly hair that is difficult to cut and the local 15 minute hair chop shop is just not an option for me.  Wish me luck!! LOL  

Now, let's talk cards!   I am sharing more of the cards I made using a dry embossed background.  In most of the cards, the dry embossing is the focal point. I added some coloring and minimal embellishments.  I used Distress inks on the coloring.

A stack of embellishments were added to this card.

Super cute Birthday Card!!

Well, have to run!!  I hope you are having a lovely day!!  See you soon for more card making fun.

Embossing Folders to the Rescue

Hello Everyone!
I have more pics today of the cards I made using dry embossed backgrounds.  I know you all have a big stack of  dry embossed pieces that have not been used ---just like me.   (I always like to try out new folders and end up with a big stack.)  I pulled out the stacks and layered, colored, added ribbon and ended up with some fun cards!  Distress inks were used to color the examples here.  Don't be afraid to try some unusual color combos.

Will be back soon with more dry embossed background samples!!  See you then.

Dragonfly Sympathy Card

Hello All,
Hot as heck here in Michigan, USA.  Taking a break from the outside to share this sympathy card I made for the death of a treasured family member.  The stamps are from Stampin' Up.  I used  gold and platinum pigment inks for the stamping.  I did not used embossing powder.  My ink pads were a little dry so the ink dried quickly.

I also made the envelope and decorated it.  This is the front of the envelope below.

Embellishment on the back of the envelope:

The dragonflies were die cut from a gold metallic paper and I used gold satin ribbon.

  Inside of card:

I will be back with more of the cards I made using dry embossing.  See you then!!

Embossing Backgrounds

Hello All!
Just dropping in to share some fun cards I made with embossed backgrounds.  I used two different folders on the same piece of cardstock.  Stamped before embossing!

Stamps from Character Construction.  Sentiments from Stampin' Up.  Super cute cards to send for a happy hello.  See you next time.
