International Art and Soul Embossing

Come along to International Art and Soul challenge blog and join us for our next challenge which is 'Embossing'. I hadn't done any heat embossing for a while so decided whatever my card was like there would be some heat embossing on it too.

My card is a large ivory blank by Joanna Sheen. The red, orange and maroon card is all by Papermill. I used a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder to emboss the clocks on the red and orange card. I cut two different sized panels and joined them with a thin strip of maroon card before adding to a mat of maroon card. The sentiment is by Visible Image and I stamped that with a Versamark pad before adding red glitter embossing powder and heating it. I cut it with a Spellbinders die and matted it on to maroon card which I then cut to leave a small border round the edge, rounding the corners with a Carl punch. I added five small Mei Flower red gems to the bottom of the sentiment panel. The brass clock charm is by Craft Box and was my final addition.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

MAWTT Flowers

Jenny has set the theme of  Flowers - handmade or die cut so this is my offering. Do come along and join us at Moving Along with the Times.

My 8x8 scalloped card blank is by Craft UK. The bright pink card was embossed with an embossalicious folder by Crafter's Companion. It embosses corners and a slight border edge. I matted it on to black card and that came from Papermill, as did the pink. The flower die was, I thought, one of Joanna Sheen's signature dies but it might not be, hmmm. The sentiment is from Bee Crafty and I stamped it and then cut with a Spellbinder die. I raised it on pads before setting the flowers around it. Three small pink pearls from Mei Flowers on each side are the only other embellishments.

IAAS Fancy Borders

This challenge at International Art and Soul is Fancy Borders. I've used my favourite border of all time and it's one of Spellbinders dies.

I've made a very simple CAS card but I love it (even though I do say so myself lol)

The card blank is a small Craft UK 6x6 and I used a background paper from one of my boxes of Craft Box goodies. I thought they were beautiful muted shades of pink and yellow with a darker lacy border printed along the bottom edge. It looked almost like earth and so I decided to stamp the tree as the focal point.The tree is by Bee Crafty and I stamped it in Memento brown ink. I cut the border in yellow card from Papermill and fixed it to the top edge. The card was finished.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
