Emboss It Blog Hop

Did you know that Close To My Heart now has Embossing Folders available?  There are 5 of them, and on my post today you will see creations using 3 of those folders.  If you want to see more creations you'll want to hop along with us, as we have over 25 CTMH Consultants participating.

If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of those hopping here. Now if you are coming from the sizzling creations from Sheila's Stamping Stuff, then you are in the right place. Now onto my creations. 

If you would like to start at the beginning, you can start with Adeline.

I really love our new embossing folders, and there are just so many techniques that you can use that I had to show you a few.

 This first card is made with the Quatrefoil embossing folder.  I used Outdoor Denim CS and after I ran it through my cuttlebug I lightly sanded the CS to reveal the white core.  The stamp set used here is Pick a Posey(C1576).
 For my second card, I used the Damask Embossing folder and took Ruby Ink and a sponge dauber and lightly brushed over the raised image to produce this pretty card.

My final card uses the Chevron Embossing folder.  I started by lightly coloring my cardbase with Honey Ink and a sponge dauber. I used Buttercup CS, and then took my Honey Ink Pad and ran it over the Embossing Folder, yes, that is right I applied the ink directly to the folder.  Clean up is so easy with baby wipes.  It gives the cardstock a sort of tone on tone look. I cut the pattern into pieces and applied it directly to the cardbase.  The stamp used is Quick Cards- Island Greetings(A1157).

I'm so glad you are hopping along with us and you are half way done if you've started from the beginning.  Your next stop is Pam's Heart Art and she has some stunning pieces of work sure to inspire you.
