~~ Just Because ~~

Good morning Y'all !!! It's Monday and that means there is a new challenge over at My Craft Spot and this week the theme is Emboss It ! I love to use embossing folders, and I used several on this card and I also used a technique I saw on UTube, using embossing powders. As I am always the last to find new techniques, I'm sure many of you have done this before, but this was my 1st attempt. I used a glue pen to trace the fancy pattern on the paper in the upper portion of my card and then covered it with embossing powder and used my heat gun to melt it. I really like the effect, I just wish I had a steadier hand when it comes to tracing!!I used the Swiss Dots folder on the solid blue Core'dinations paper and sanded down the edges and each small dot. The frame was cut from the Bloom cart, I added some vintage seam binding , small brass brads and a vintage button. The sentiment is from The Sweet Sentiments Collection, Set 1 and I used brown Bakers Twine, both of which can be purchased at . Y'all be sure to check out all the other projects this week and find out what goodies Kimberly is giving away!!! Get out your embossing folders and embossing powders and Emboss it !!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Your card is lovely. I love that you traced your top embossed image with a glue pen then embossed over it. Great idea! TFS.

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
