Embossing Folders

Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to all the lovely ladies who invited me along to the Numeralla Craft Group today.  I always enjoy getting together with other crafters, and this group were particularly welcoming, despite the chilly, foggy weather.
We made two cards today, and I decided to introduce the Big Shot and Embossing Folders.  I just love embossing folders, they are such a quick and easy way to add some interest and texture to a card.

This first card uses the Wildflower Meadow background stamp (Page 175 of the catalogue) and matching embossing folder  (page 227).  We also used the Delicate Designs Embossing folder for the lacy look and some of the gorgeous Venetian Crochet Trim (Page 206).

Our second card uses the Large Polka Dot embossing folder (Page 227), the Typeset Designer Series Papers (Page 184) and the gorgeous stamp set called Traveler (Page 38) which is fantastic for masculine cards.

The ladies at Numeralla have invited me to join them whenever I want to, so I am guessing they enjoyed themselves as much as I did.  Thanks again, ladies.
Happy stamping!
Chris

Wildflower Meadow

I finally got some time over the last couple of days to do some stamping, we have so much going on at present that finding the time to stamp has not been easy.
I wanted to do something a little different with the the Wildflower Meadow embossing folder, and here is what I came up with.

Lots of sponging on this one, however I like the vintage look.  The colours I have used are Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar.  The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and the greeting from the hostess set Banner Greetings.
Promise to be back soon with some more of my creations.
Happy Stamping!
Chris
