Embossing Week 2 Project

This card was using a chipboard template to exclude an area from the embossing folder so that I could stamp in the middle.  I had inked on embossing folders before but this time spent ages trying out differant papers and different inks.  In the end I settled on a "Big and Juicy" ink pad and a piece of "Bazzill " cardstock.

Embossing Folder - Sizzix
Stamps - Waltzing Mouse.


  1. This is a most beautiful creation. I love your technique of leaving part of your embossed area unembossed for your sentiment. The way you added color to your debossed area is amazing.

  2. This is fabulous - I love the way you've coloured the embossed area - a technique I really like but seldom use!! The empty area for your embossing works brilliantly.

    Welcome to the world of blogging - you're caught now :)

  3. This is just gorgeous Thelma. I love the depth of embossing and all the subtle colouring. Masking an area for stamping was a great idea. I share your frustrations with technology - its a constant struggle isn't it. Good luck with your blogging!
