Monday Challenge #84 - Wish Big!

Hello Everyone,

Well over at My Craft Spot with Kimberly this week the challenge is Wish Big! (anything birthday). I love making birthday cards it always seems like I need one. Well here is my card:

To start off my card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/2. The pink layer is cut 4 1/16 x 4 5/16 and the kraft is cut 3 3/8 x 3 5/8. I cut the image from the cricut cart Love you a Latte. I cut it at 3.5 inches and all pieces were cut in white. I do this sometimes it really makes cutting fast. Then I usually use my copics. This was a great image for this process (I don't recommend doing this for large pieces) Here are the colors I used. (E35, RV13, RV25, R46, G24, & E29) I used glossy accents on the top layer for the caramel sauce. My sentiment is from My Craft Spot Birthday Wishes. The banner is from MCT.

New Vision Embossing Series

Hello Everyone,

Today I posted another video in my series of New Vision Embossing.(where I take my old dies and embossing folders and use them and incorporate the new stuff). In this video I inked an embosslit Flower Burst from Sizzix, then I die cut hearts. I also used some paint chips to cut the dies. It has been lots of fun playing with my stuff. I have more videos coming on some other techniques I used.

The die that I used was a die that I received when I bought my first cuttle bug some years ago.

New Vision Embossing

Hello Everyone,

I have started a new series of videos on you tube. New Vision Embossing. I am taking some of my old embossing folders and dies(some of which I have not used and had for 5 years or more) and using them and mixing them with my new stuff. It has been a lot of fun planning them. I love doing videos and I had taken a break from them for a while. I am working on a few other series also. Well here is my video and a few pictures of my project.

Have a great day!
