Sparkle embossing

 There are quite a few challenges out there right now for embossing, and one of them asked for sparkle. I hadn't played with my Twinkling H2o's for ever, they have a lot of sparkle in them and they needed to come out and play again :)  I found this Video on you tube for those of you that have not heard of them.


  • Darice - Flourishes 3 pack embossing border folders
  • Twinkling H2o's for sparkle and watercolor
  • Poppy Stamps - Stitched Bloom Trio die
  • Tim Holtz - Metallic sticker book sentiment and frame
  • Gem


It is funny the older you get the more your eyes deceive you, while painting the embossed areas I thought wow I am doing a great job with this, then when I download the pictures and see them close up on my computer I see it wasn't as good as I thought, but you can see the embossing so I guess that is the most important :)

I will be sharing with the following challenges:



Double D Challenge color of summer  - In this challenge I used the colors in the drinks at the bottom right

That was a lot of challenges so why not join along with all the above challenges, some will be ending soon so get creating :)

Hope you all have an enjoyable weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

Gorgeous flowers! The border adds just the right interest to really pop your die cut flower yet keeps the card CAS. Nicely done!

What a beautiful card! Thanks for playing along with Poppystamps!

Really pretty design, love the coloured embossing! I think photos of our cards often show imperfections the eye just doesn't see (and the recipients certainly don't see!). Interesting that's a border design by Darice - I have an ancient set of small Cuttlebug folders (approx 2" square) with the same (single) floral motif as one of them!
