New Vision Embossing


I put up another video a couple of days ago in my new series.(Getting out those old embossing folders and dies and using them and incorporating them with the new stuff) I have had these dies and folder for some time. They didn't quite work how I thought they should so I never really used them. Well I got them out and figured out the best way to use them. So here is my video.

Just a set of 3 1/4 square cards.

Designer Challenge-- Nikki Foraker


It is time for another designer challenge over at My Creative Time. Miss Nikki Navy Wife is leading it this time. The challenge is to use embossing either wet or dry or both.
Here is my project:

For this project this picture does not do it justice.I have got to set up a place to take pictures. I will try to explain my process.  I started out with an A2 sized card the gray cs is cut 4 1/6 x 5 5/16 and the blue cs is cut at 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. The blue cs is core'dinations paper and I embossed it with an old sizzix embossing plate also sanded it.  I embossed the butterflies with white embossing powder on water color paper.  I used broken china distress ink over the butterflies.(used a kraft sheet for this process and then I distressed the edges)  I stamped Thinking of you from MCT Floral Sentiments stamp set and embossed it also. The hearts are MCT dies which I cut with the scrap watercolor paper with the distressed ink.

Link up Party


Emma over at My Creative Time is having a link up party.  She wants to see what everyone has created with her latest release.  Here are some things I have created.

 This card is a 4 x 4with the lower edges rounded. I stitched the hearts on a piece of cs 2 1/8 x 2 1/2 and then popped it up. The sentiment is from an older set by MCT 100% Sweetness.

This card is a 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 one.

This is an A2 sized card. I used all of the heart dies on this card and the sentiment is from MCT 100% Sweetness.

New Vision Embossing Video

Hello and welcome to another video in my series. In this video I use a beautiful heart embossing folder to create this card. I also used a tag cuttlebug die e and I stamped it with a MCT Stamp. The back ground is embossed with the swiss dots embossing folder. I finished it off with some ribbon and sanding (I used the core'dinations card stock). I don't think I ever used this folder and I have had it for a long time. It was fun to get it out especially this time of year but you could also use this for wedding, anniversary or other card.
  Here is my video:

New Vision Embossing Love

Hello and welcome to another video I have created in my series New Vision Embossing. In this series I take some of my old dies and embossing folders (some I have had for 5 or more years) and bring new life to them. I use them with my newer stuff.
Here is my video:
