This blog has been a great thing for me. I have a ton of stuff for making cards but was not using any of it. By doing this blog it has motivated me to make cards again. My goal is to write or post a handmade card every day for the first month. Now its like any free time I have I am in my back room trying to come up with some new ideas or cards. The funny thing is that I forgot how much fun it was. I feel really good and accomplished when I have made something.
I think universal cards are great so I’ve made another one. I was looking through my stuff and came across my embossing things. I knew I had to make a card using it. I love how embossing looks. It gives the card texture. I started out with black cardstock from the craft store. I then took my Versa Mark from Stampin Up and stamped the flower, pedal, and swirls. Next I poured my white stampin powder on my stamped images. Once all the excess powder is removed you heat up the embossing powder that is left on your images with an embossing tool. I then used Real Red eyelets to give it a little color. For the wonderful I used white cardstock . I stamped the word with my Versa Mark and used Basic Black embossing powder. I then tore around the wonderful and added a couple of black and white layers . The wonderful is from the set Warm Words and the rest of the stamps is from the set Friendship Blooms. Both are from Stampin Up.
I hope you are enjoying my handmade cards and ideas. Like I said I am going to try and post something every day for a month so come and check back each day to see what I have. Have a great day!!
