I was excited to see over at Just Us Girls the latest challenge was Heat Embossed Embossing Folder and the link to Jennifer McGuire's video and also the Let's Squash It challenge...with it's Double Embossing Challenge. Gail had given us a wee sneak peek of what was upcoming.
Monday, 11 October 2021
So on Sunday I pulled out some Embossing folders, my Versamark and some different embossing powders. Four background peices done... two awesome, one ok and one a bit of a failure... wrong colour card and wrong powder. So far I have finished one card which I will share now.
For this one I used Altenew's Decorative Florals 3D folder and used versamark to ink up the folder. I then used Altenew's silver powder to emboss the background. I was over the moon how well it turned out. I trimmed the panel down and added a white layer before adding to a top folding A2 black card base. I used a die cut an hello sentiment from silver card and did the shadow in black. These are from Honey Bee as is the little sentiment. The little flag die si from a Gina K Master Layout set.
Entering this one into both challenges.
Here's a wee sneak peek of the other awesome panel
I used a powder called Winter Illusion that I have had since I started stamped around 13 years ago. Was suprised it still worked. It changes colour with however you tilt the card. Here you can see the two colours... teal and pinky purple. Still have to make it into a card yet.
Still in Lockdown here... another week at Level 3.1 - we did manage to catch up with our son on Friday evening... sitting on the deck socially distancing. But not able to see Grace yet... she doesn't understand that she can't go inside to play with her toys or give Nanny and Pop a cuddle. So it's a waiting game till we can moved levels. Cases are going up and down all over the place here in Auckland. So it's back to the dining table for the next little while.
