Flower Challenge

First of all I have good news my sister did receive her card today, it took two weeks to go from Illinois to Michigan but it got there and she said it was in good shape!!

The Flower Challenge blog had an embossing challenge, you can read about it HERE.  





I decided to do heat embossing, stamped the flower stems and leaves with white embossing powder, then I took my inks and sponged them over the embossing.


There are some really good encourageing sentiments in this group of word bands.

Heidi Grace Designs -- Winnefred St. Stamp set, white embossing with ink sponging over it
Distress Inks -- Broken China and Peeled Paint
Lawn Fawn -- Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables die
Tim Holtz -- Idea-ology Word Bands
Ric Rac
Dew Drops

It has hit the 100's two days in a row and they are saying again tomorrow.  Getting some things done inside that I haven't had a chance to do since I have been so busy outside.

Hope you all are keeping cool and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

So happy to hear that your card found its way home!! This one is so pretty, I have never tried the method of embossing, a lot of people use it for scrap booking as well as cards!!

Wow, Connie, that is the true definition of 'snail mail'! Glad your sister's card arrived safely. I love your flower card - the lacy edge is very sweet and the saying is wonderful. Oh, 100 degrees is truly awful - I hope you get a break from the heat soon. Hugs xo Karen

Great news that the card arrived safely! I wonder what in the world made it take so long? Your card today made me say "wow"! So pretty with all the white and that beautiful blue. I always love flower cards with white embossing. The rhinestones are a lovely touch, and all framed up with that cute eyelet edge.

Emboss Resist is such a pretty technique! You chose the perfect color for your fabulous flower! Loving that die cut panel too! PRETTY!

Ruth said...

Love the sort of halo effect you get when emboss resisting over the flower and leaves. Such pretty colours too. It sounds very hot where you are, and I'm sure we could borrow a few of those degrees over in the UK where it's been raining...... Thank you so much for joining us this month at The Flower Challenge.
