Hi everyone! It's back to normal, right? It always takes me a little while to get back to the routine after the holidays, how about you? I felt a little rusty in my craft room yesterday, but I am sure with all the new goodies coming out, I'll get back into the groove soon! Our Stamp Ink Paper challenge for this week is "Emboss It"!
I did both heat and dry embossing on my card today, which is a birthday card for my sister, who drinks coffee all day (and night) long and yet has no problem sleeping, LOL! Anyway, I used the Match the Sketch sketch, turning it on its side so I could use the coffee cup from Coffee Cafe:
And here we go:
I used a card base of Melon Mambo for a bright burst of color, and a new-to-me embossing folder from Tim Holtz. Funny story, I bought this folder because I thought it was sand pails, which my other sister collects; imagine my surprise when I looked closer and found it was coffee cups!! Silly me! But in today's coffee-obsessed world, I certainly can put it to use!
I did heat embossing on my coffee cup, lid and sentiment, which comes from the December Paper Pumpkin kit. The papers and washi are from a sweet little kit from Dayspring Cards and Bella Blvd, called Illustrated Faith:
The little square panel behind my coffee cup is also embossed with the Falling Petals EF! The final touch was three little punched hearts, embellished with some sequins from my stash!
Thanks for visiting today, and be sure to share your embossed creation at the SIP blog!
At Christmas eve morning's service, our pastor did a little lesson for the children, after which they sang Away in a Manger. The little boy next to Cassidy was quite enamored with her singing!! So cute! And yes, although there is another little boy behind Cass, we have a lot more girls than boys!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
