#161 Make A Splash: Embossing Folder Blog Hop

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Welcome to our first EVER ... Close To My Heart Team Blog Hop ... featuring Embossing  Folders!
For those of you already on the hop ... you have just hopped over to my blog from the FABULOUS Suzanne Lowrie's blog here:  http://www.scrapbookingsue.com

Now ... on with the fun!  For my card I wanted to show you how embossing a simple shape can
help frame your focal image while at the same time adding depth and interest.
This simple card is chock full of little embellishments ... have you found them all?
TIP:  I always combine stamp sets.  Images don't have to be perfect matches to work together.

Have fun with it ...and experiment.  The arrow and the dotted circle I've used in this
background piece are happy, whimsical additions to this design.
To tie them all together I colored these images with my 2 green Twin Touch colors.

I colored my image with my FABULOUS Twin Touch Markers ... THEY.ARE.AWESOME!

And if you know me ... you know I put Liquid Glass on EVERYTHING!  LOOOOOVE it!  So it's no surprise that I've used it on this card.

Washi tape, bling, mini staples ... stamp sets ... my cup runneth over. 
All of my supplies used are listed below ... in the meantime ... keep hopping!
