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!
