    Gold embossing with Pinkfresh Studio

    Hiya Here is my second card for the May challenge at Pinkfresh Studio which is based on this sketch I don’t have any puffy stickers unfortunately so my cards are based on the colour palette provided. I gold heat embossed this gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio Stamp on watercolour card with the help on my mini Misti, versamark ink and an anti-static bag. Once melted I used my zig clean colour real brushes to add colour. Then I fussy cut a section and 3d mounted it into another panel of the same heat embossed stamp on white Bristol card.

    Hi everyone The current addicted to CAS Challenge is Music. I really struggled with this as I don’t have any music related stamps or dies, but then I saw this fun bear by Rosies studio, and he really looks like he’s dancing to me. Any suggestions on what song he’s dancing to? I embossed there with Simon Says Stamp Rose copper embossing powder, coloured with copics and printed the sentiment on my printer – this is a quote I wish to apply myself. I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

    CASology: Encourage

    This week at CASology the theme is a lovely one, we all need encouragement.   For my card I used a new stamp set to me, walk by faith, by pinkfresh studio.

    SSS Wednesday Challenge – Mask It

    I don’t know about you but I eagerly look forward to seeing what challenge Simon Says Stamp gives us on a Wednesday. And I love seeing what everyone else makes too.  This week the theme is Mask It.  I am not good at this, but earlier in the week I saw a beautiful card by Laura Bassen and knew I wanted to try something similar. I was incredibly thrilled a few days ago when an unexpected parcel with gifts of goodies arrived for me from Simon Says Stamp.  You should have heard the squeal! Included was this pretty stamp set (and matching dies) called Lovely Spring.  Just exactly the kind of…
