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.

Think Pink – Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge

By Cards

Thinking Of You

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a time when we bring awareness to the fight for a cure. It’s especially a time when organizations show their support for fundraising and awareness. So as you could imagine, I was pleased to find that many crafters were also participating by creating fun challenges for their readers. I decided to join in on the fun too.

Robyn, My Pink Stamper, asked her viewers to join her in a Think Pink challenge in which she asked crafters to use pink patterns as a base for a card. Here is the design I came up with to contribute to the challenge.

I cut 1 inch squares using several papers and created a pink grid. I added in a ribbon and used a back-folding technique for extra texture. I used my circuit die cutting machine to create some cancer ribbons and a heart. Lastly, I used a simply sentiment and stamped it in black.

I think it turned out pretty well for one of my first attempts at a greeting card! More than anything, I simply enjoy participating in a noteworthy cause.

His&Hers Day 3 (Masculine Card)

By Cards


Hi all,

For todays masculine card, we were given the tast to create a sentiment card. I found this to be quite challenging in that I didn’t really have any images to represente a masculine theme. I used what I had and tried to create a customized sentiment. I used the same technique as the female card. First I stamped the house image in a light toned ink and then watercolored above it.  Here is the result!

Thinking of You and Praying for You

Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow for day 4!

His&Hers Day 1 (Masculine Card)

For today’s Masculine card I wanted to create a cards using “Thinking of you” as a sentiment and products that would stretch to both of projects. For both cards I used Embossing folders, washi tape, my circle cutter and papers from My Minds Eye.
