Embossed Floral Note Cards

By | Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories | No Comments

Hi All,

I’m welcome to another monthly release of new cards! I’m excited to share a few of the newest cards to my collection.

These notecards were created using a nice thick quality cardstock and then dry embossed to have that white floral background you see in the pictures. I cannot express enough how dry embossing a card base can spruce up a card to a whole new level.

The color scheme is nice and bright featuring shades of pastel pink and turquoise. Also, I am still loving the use of gold cord as an embellishment on cards, so I added a piece to this card (and many others you’ll come to find).

The card measures 4.25″ x 5.5″ and coordinates with a cool gray envelope to create a set.

Here’s a better look at the card.

Since the card front is dry embossed, there’s a gorgeous debossed effect on the inside of the card.

Hello Note Cards Gem Gold Foil

By | Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories | No Comments

Hi All,

Have you been keeping up with all the different note card sets that I’ve shared this week? I have saved my personal favorite for today! For this card, I kept the color palate very soft and neutral. This card features a gorgeous gold foil gem pattern which is actually printed on a matte off-white vellum. It is beautiful! I also embossed the cards with a raised small dot pattern. The hello sentiment is dimensional and sits atop the embossing. To separate the two patterns I used a small gray striped border using thin Japanese washi tape.

Here’s a closer look!

I love how the gold picks up the light and becomes reflective!

The embossing leaves a gorgeous pattern on the interior of the card as well. I love this subtle detail!

Craft Room Tour Embossing Powder Storage

By | Craftroom Storage | No Comments


Hi all,

I’m back with a quick idea on how to store some of those loose powders, glitters or small embellishments in your craft space. I am always on the hunt for something that doubles as both tidy and functional when it comes to organizing my craft room. My room doubles as an office space so I like everything labeled and put away when not in use.

When I came across these little containers from Advantus I immediately knew how I could put them to use. I decided to dump all the varying sizes and shapes on embossing powders into these jars. I gave each a label on the sides and on top of the lid to let me know the brand and shade I had in each and then stacked them 3 high in a little cubby I have above my desk.

Here’s a closer look at these containers.

Although they do come in several different colors, I enjoy seeing the color of the powders come through and thought clear would be better suited for my space. I purchased mine here.

For those of you who are looking for a clean and tidy way to organize your space. I highly recommend this solution.



Floral Card Using Mutli Layered Heat Embossing

By | Cards | No Comments


Hi all,

How many times have you cleaned your room and stumble upon something you’ve had for the longest time? That’s the feeling I have about the corner of my craft room that houses embossing powders. I’ve spent the last few posts re-discovering the powders all over again. For this card, I decided to swap out my usual stamp inks for only embossing powders.


I grabbed my favorite floral set from Altenew and some Versa mark ink. I stamped the bottom layer of a flower and heat embossed it in a light color gradient of pink. Then I stamped directly on top of the embossed image and stamped the layer of details included in the stamp set. Next, I heat embossed in a darker shade.

Once the stamping was complete I cut out the images and layered them onto my card base.

Here’s how the whole project came together.
