true friend & a fun new technique

Just a quick post because as I’m typing this, I still need to get my Halloween treats made (for today!). 

I have 2 cards today for the preview of Amy Rysavy’s new set…Sassy Sentiments.  There are some really cute sentiments in this set…be sure to check it out!

My first card uses a sentiment that really caught my eye.  I am not a coffee drinker….blech!  LOL.  But I have lots of friends who are!  I also used paper from the Kaisercraft Utopia pad which I purchased from the ATS store. 

I never used the papers with the little tags, labels, etc. in them but I really liked how quick this was to stamp a sentiment on a punch-out, pre-printed label!

For my second card I wanted to try out a new technique I found…Inset Embossing Folder.  I love my embossing folders so I knew I would love this technique!  Here is the website with a tutorial.  All you do is glue some punch-outs onto another piece of cardstock and then emboss.  The punched pieces seem to almost “melt” into the cardstock base. 

I tried 4 different folders and as you can see, they each gave a different look.   

This technique made a few birthday cards very quickly.  Love that!  Here I used another sentiment from Amy’s new set.

Thanks for popping by!
