You will have either arrived from Kirstie’s post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME. This month our theme is EMBOSSING – I must confess that I really had to put my thinking cap on for this theme, I had done one last year and wanted to make sure I did something completely different.
Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice.
My sweet husband does all my photography for me – today’s design posed a real challenge for him with all the reflections from the different Foil Sheets I chose to use! (…and I think he dun good!)
12 x 12 Early Expresso Card
Very Vanilla Card for Journaling Patch: 3 3/4 x 2 Very Vanilla Card
Early Expresso Ink
I used all 5 of the Foil Sheets available, Silver, Gold, Copper, Champagne and the new Brass. I cut a variety of strips of between 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 1 3/4 & 2 wide and 4, 5 & 6 long. I used my Paper Trimmer to cut them corner to corner to create elongated triangles then run them through the cut/emboss machine with 5 different embossing folders. A little Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to hold them down and a final scattering of the lovely copper Star Designer Elements.
You can see I did not go too crazy with the stamping ~ the layout of the foils reminded me of a sunburst I found ‘Thank you for being my Sunshine’ in the Pretty Parasol Stamp Set
