Floral Card Using Mutli Layered Heat Embossing

By Cards


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.

Handmade Flowers For Handmade Wreaths

By Room Decor

Hey all,

As promised I’m here today with an entirely new project. It’s something a little outside the norm but entirely handmade. As many of you may know, yarn wreaths are totally ‘in’ right now. You can surf through Pinterest and find hundreds of different styles and techniques to making a nice big wreath for your front door or home decor. But there are absolutely no posts (or should i say ‘pins’) on making them miniature. I wanted to make some small ones that could be used to decorate smaller knick-knacks around the house.

I made a quick trip to our local craft store for some yarn and felt…and got to work. Here’s the finished project!



I experimented with some stiff felt to create the flowers you see here. Also, I love to distress things and inked up some of the flowers for a more vintage look (yes they were all originally white)!

Here’s another look at those flowers.



And guess what? I just may have a few extras too.

I’ve got more projects lined up to share with you tomorrow. See you then! =)

Hi all,

We’re on day 9 and I am blown away by the cards presented in today’s class. Jennifer McGuire introduced me to the world of pleated cards and I just had to try out the technique for myself. I think this card is by far my favorite for the week and I am so excited to adapt it to a project I am working on for the upcoming month.

Here is my card and new technique demonstrated for day 9:

Hi All,

Wow, how quickly time has flown into the second week of card camp! We’re on to week two and once again I am fully engulfed in all the awesome designs and techniques being shared over on the class blog. I’ve got to say this was one of the best choices I made in joining this class.

Here is this week’s color combo challenge:

Week 2 Color Combo

Here is the card I came up with. I’m super happy with the way it turned out. I can see my skills growing and aim to only get better when it comes to balance and contrast in card making.
