Triple stamping

I tried my hand at triple stamping. To triple stamp you cut three layers of paper in three different sizes. You then layer the paper on top of each other then stamp all three layers at one time. After you tamp you add a background color to accent your stamping areas like I did with the green paper.
I also found a cool bundle of colored metalic yarn from Lion Brand yarn in the yarn section at Hobby Lobby. I campaired the cost and look of the bakers twine to this and thought this was a much better deal and a whole lot prettier. You get much more yarn than the bundles of bakers twine I found.

Time to re-organize cuttlebug embossing folders!

I decided it was time to organize my Cuttlebug embossing folders. I had them in a drawer but I had to pull several ut at a time to find what I needed. I bought page protectors and used some left over tape from our plastic window cover kit. It sticks really well. Better than regular double sided tape. I then sealed the middle and the top of the sheet protector.
I then cut a slit on one side of the sheet protector about an inch away from the side. This way the egde woul catch the foldr if it decides to slide.
I put it in a binder and now I am a little more organized. I found several ways to organize embossing folders on pinterest. Look to see what would work best for you.

Corny Card

Just a fun little card I made for a friend. I used Smiley cards cricut gypsy download to cut the corn and the word corny. I used a spellbinders die to cut the rectangle. Embossed the card then inked the edges with orange ink. I finally used my Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face stamps to make a face for the corn. A little glitter and presto it's done.

Grateful embossed card

I thought I would make a few cards just using heat embossing. It is amazing how elegant a card can look with a few simple designs embossed on it.

Embossed Thank You Card

I made this card for a special new friend. I really hope she likes it when she gets it. I used my fiskers stamp press to lace the different lace circles in random areas. I then used embossing glue and embossed the white card with white embossing powder. I inked the top with two different colors of blue. I was hoping that both blue inks would leave the embossed area white but one colored the area. Funny since it was the exact same brand ink. I used my cricut to cut out the tag then repeated the same process. Added ribbon and wallah!
