Archive for the ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’ Category



For the Inspiration Challenge, Stacy chose U.S. Mint Sheets. I’ve always had a thing for postage stamps & I have a good size collection of mostly used stamps. I just love the artwork on stamps! I chose a stamp that I actually have & I found it on the site, but since then, I guess they sold out & it doesn’t show up anymore but HERE it is.

My Tiffany lamp was gold embossed onto a polished stone bg I made using Copic refills, rubbing alcohol & a gold leaf marker. After embossing the lamp & the book, I fussy cut them & added them to a pine green layer w/ a long window cut out. I added a pale peach layer behind it & gold embossed the greeting. The little butterflies were punched out of some leftovers of the bg. Little strips of the green that I cut w/ postage stamp scissors were added around the green layer.

Here’s the inside:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC658), we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. And as everyone knows, Texans are pretty proud of their state. Remember the old saying...”Don’t ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, you’ll just embarrass him.” I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong  😕 

To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You’re welcome!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, y’all!

I combined 2 Splitcoast Challenges, the Clean & Simple (CAS486) & Technique Challenge (TLC695). The TLC was to cover card stock w/ washi tape, then emboss it. The CAS was to make a celebration card.

It may not look like a celebration card, but it is…while I was making this, my aunt called to tell me my uncle had passed away. My aunt & uncle are twins so I’m sending this to her. So I guess my card is more a celebration of his life than a sympathy card. He hadn’t been sick, in fact he played a LOT of golf & did a LOT of bowling, but life is like that, I guess.

Anyway, I didn’t have as much washi tape as I thought but I found a couple w/ black patterns, some pink & pale green & some black glitter so that’s what I used. It was embossed w/ Swiss dots then framed w/ a pale mint green & the greeting added.

Here’s the inside. My aunt will get the quote…we can cry that he’s gone or rejoice that he lived.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
