"Emboss It" Blog Hop

Welcome!  Over 25 consultants who participate in the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop are also participating in the "Emboss It" Blog Hop.  If you get lost along the way, just click on Melinda's link here.

If you have been hopping with us, then you have hopped from Michelle's blog here and you have been inspired to try her technique.

If you are confused in how to use our NEW Embossing folders, then watch this video below!  Jill does an amazing job in explaining the grain of our paper  ( who knew?) and how to emboss with our folders.


Here is my sample of the "grain" of paper ( I knew there was grain in fabric but I had no idea there was a grain to paper!)

Did you notice that my paper sample actually tore apart?...

Here is a picture of the folders that we are currently offering!

I decided since it IS the first day of Spring ( sorry some of you still haven't experienced that yet...), that I am celebrating this event!  For me, the indoor house projects are completed ( well.....almost) and it is time to move outdoors!

I rescued these flowers from the local K-Mart...perfect flowers for a Florida spring! As I was browsing the store, all of the Easter decorations reminded me of spring as here is my embossed Easter card front!

I stamped the images first and then embossed the layer.  Here are a few hints to help you out...

Here is the inside of the card

Z1924 Dots Embossing folder
C1561 One-Way Borders
B1446 Some Bonny Hostess Rewards stamp set
Sweetleaf, Buttercup and White Daisy cardstock
Blush, Sky, Sweet Leaf and Buttercup Inks
Z1732 Color-Ready Seam Binding- retired
Assorted Copic markers

The CCR file for this design is here... 
Please email me if you have any problems...

Here is another card using scraps from a Chantilly workshop from last year!  I glued them onto a card base and then embossed the design.  I added the dimensional images after the embossing...DO NOT throw away your scraps!   ..............yeah....I know....

Now it is time to hop on over to the "Bling" Queen a.k.a. as Melinda's blog here. and she what she has to offer!

Nice cards, although I did get side-winded by the pansy in your last pic. Since we just got dumped on again with the freezing rain/snow/wind/ice. I may have to move south.

Adorable Easter cards. Love the story and the way you showed the grain and against the grain with embossing. Great tutorial.
