Hey y'all. Happy Thursday! Just one more day until the long weekend. Woo-Hoo! Do you have any fun plans? I'm having an Open House, Friday, Saturday and Sunday to celebrate our New Catalog. I'm also going to be featuring Scentsy Home Products and the delish New Velata Premium Chocolate Fondue. So if you're in the Metro DMV and want to come by and make a project with new product, smell some great scents and enjoy yummy snacks, hit me up..I'd love to see you!
I know the plan had been to do my EWT today....best laid plans and all that. I saw a sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and just had to play along, (and wanted to go ahead and be able to post ) so this weeks EWT will come tomorrow.
Can you believe 3 challenges this week? It's been a while since I did that. :) However when I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do. So rare for that to happen, so when it does it just doesn't make sense to not go with it! I'm using this for my Clean and Simple card of the week because even though it has a lot of embossing and sponging, the overall look is Clean and Simple. The C&S card I had planned for today will simply get moved to next week.(Whew now the stress is off for me to do another in the C&S style! Score!!!)
I hope you're not getting tired of Betsy's Blossoms because I am so loving it! Here's today's card-
|C&S Betsy's Blossoms with Embossing, Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #36|
|Embossed Betsy's Blossoms|
It was really hard to capture the embossing , but I think this few gives you a little glimpse. I used Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Marina Mist and Gumball Green and heat embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder. In person the embossing just "pops" out at you. It's really so striking and you just want to rub your hands over it to feel the texture, especially on the sweet little bird and middle blossom. I used my 1 1/4 square punch to punch out my elements after embossing and then sponged the edges with the matching color. The 3 squares are adhered with Tombow. The center panel is elevated with dimensionals.
