Silver embossing

I embossed both my pieces of navy cardstock with silver embossing powder, the smaller pieces way layer with white card and attached with foam pads, the corners had red flat pearls attached, and the card was finished with a knotted red ribbon.

This card is for a challenge on stampTV where I had to follow a sketch.

There is also a challenge on No time to stamp which called for heat it up! embossing.

Stamp Something challenge this week is 'my favourite' and that at the moment is embossing

Thank you for looking

In the Pink

For my card I used one of my cuttlebug folders for the first time, its the leafy branch, and after embossing my brown card with it I roughen it up with a pan cleaner, to get the distressed look. The flowers were made from a Provo Craft die cut, and the circles punched out with my leather punch. The sentiment was computer generated in pink and then embossed with clear powder. I used my scallopped scissors to finish off the edge, and finally pink ribbon threaded through a white beaded buckle. I was inspired by a card I saw while blog hopping, I am afraid I dont know where I saw the card but if anyone does please let me know and I will give credit.

This fits the Pink Elephant challenge where we had to use ribbon and die cuts
One stop Craft challenge where we could not use any designer paper
ABC challenge where this week it was D for distressing
and Stamp TV where the colour challenge was to use Pink and one neutral colour.

Thank you for looking ... Jose
