 Hello -

Today I tired something new.  Jennifer McGuire recently showed using heat embossing and dry embossing together.  You can find her video here.

I actually used some older non deep 3d type folders, and silver pearl embossing powder for the panels. It worked out nicely.  I mounted the panels with their added stamped image to a card base of the same color as the embossed panel. 

This card is visiting  Four Seasons.


This card is visiting The Card Concept, I was inspired by the 
pumpkins and created this card in a clean and layered style.  


This card is visiting Let's Squash It.

This card is my favorite...that penguin is so cute and its going to 


This  technique takes some time, at least for me probably because I made 4 at the same time...now I am off to clean the folders and the brayer.  

Thanks very much for visiting...have you tried this yet?

Totally awesome cards Cat. Love them all but particularly love the one with the bird. Love the vellum circle. Must try that - and love the penguins too. I have the snowflake folder so will try that one too.

They are all beautiful, but I think my favourite is the third one and that is because it is green and I always love green. What fun you have had xx

Leslie Miller said...

Hmmmm, I've done something similar, but not quite this way. You know I'm going to have to give it a try now 'cuz your cards turned out so awesome! You have some great embossing folders. I have the first one and have never used it enough. So beautiful. What a fun sentiment to go with the adorable kitty on that one! Cat, it's great to see your fall card at Four Seasons and your Christmas card at Peace on Earth! Thanks so much for joining us!
