|Just A Note|
Hello! - This card was made for a Double Embossing challenge. I was freaking out because I only had two embossing powders (black & white). The challenge was to use an embossing paste, glaze, or gel. I had no idea what these were! I hadn't stamped in 10+ years before becoming a Stampin' Up! Demo again. Back then I don't think there were pastes, glazes, or gels. I only remember powders and I wasn't very fond of them. I know I have more colors (somewhere in storage), but on the day of the challenge I only had black and white. Luckily the challenge hostess posted a video to help. On the video was a tutorial on how to mix two powders before heating. I tried that and look how pretty the flower came out! I was so excited. But, my background was so boring! I decided to run it through the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and what a difference it made! I'm still not great at using embossing powder, so I had speckled of it where it should not have been, so I covered them with the floral sentiment and Rhinestone Basic Jewels. In person, the embossed flower shimmers ever so slightly and casts a beautiful glow.
Rosey Hello - This card was for a Classics challenge. We were to use a Classic Rose on our cards. This retired die was perfect for the challenge. At first I was a little intimidated to use it because the other rose cards were red roses and I wanted something softer. I used Purple Posy cardstock for the card base and the rose background. I needed to makes the rose pop out from the card base so I used some white vellum cardstock. It works wonderfully with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder so that it doesn't look so flat. Add some Pearl Basic Jewels and wa-lah, beautiful card! The Sizzix Friendship Words: Script dies are so pretty when you want a non-stamped sentiment on the card as well. Man, I could have used this card and the Grape Day card for the No Stamp challenge too, LOL!
Celebrate - Since I am quite new to the Country Music Scene I do not have any cowboy hat stamps or dies. It wasn't until I was done with this card did I read the whole challenge and found that any hat
