Happy Easter

I found a bit of time to make some Easter cards today! Photobucket I stamped the background with the eggs from Friendship Jar Spring Filler in Hawaiian Shores ink. The little chick also comes from that set. Hope you had a great weekend!

Make It Monday: Embossing

Hi! It's been a long has been busy!! I want to share a set of cards that I made using heat embossing (one of my favorite techniques!). These cards are part of a bundle that I'll be donating for my daughter's preschool silent auction fundraiser.


The design is the same for all six: a die-cut Mat Stack 4 stamped with several images from that same set, a heat-embossed background using a stamp from Damask Designs, and several different sentiments from various sets.


On some of the cards, I rounded the bottom edges. I chose not to include ribbon on these, so they are easily mailable.


I wanted to include a variety of sentiments, they come from Vintage Picnic, Just the Ticket, and Star Prints.


And finally a photo of that lovely embossing!


Thanks for coming by to look!
