Embossed Blossoms

Hello!  I’m back.  I had annual leave in January.  January is a good time to take leave because it is the most reliable time of the year for good weather.  It didn’t disappoint, some days it reached 40OC.

The Bendigo Art Gallery had an exclusive Edith Head costume exhibition on during January.  Edith Head worked on 1,000s of films and won 8 Academy Awards.  She dressed stars such as Dorothy Lamour, Mae West, Barbara Stanwick and Veronica Lake.  A friend and I drove up and really enjoyed it.

So now to the card I have made for the Less is More Challenge - Dry Embossing.
Embossing Folder - Stampin Up
Semtiment - Technique Tuesday
Colouring - Copics
Card - Bazzill & UPM

Paris Domino Book

I am back but not for a CAS Card Challenge.  For a change I have some altered art to show you.

My sister suggested we each make a Domino Book, a first for both of us.  We set a deadline, tonight, so there would be no procrastination (as if).

Front view, closed

Front views, open

Back view, Closed

Back views open

As this is not my usual type of project I had to dig deep, deep into my stash.
I have used a collage sheet of Paris images, K & Company DP, Kaiser Craft rhinestones, a Penny Black stamp and a Technique Tuesday stamp.  The flowers and ribbon are scraps from the bottom of my stash.

Now I am heading over to see my sister's Domino Book and I would advise you to do the same - she does lovely work  Cards & Co.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hi Friend

Tonight my card is for the Sketch Challenge, at CAS Colours & Sketches 

Die: MFT and Lawn Fawn
Sentiment:  Annabelle Stamps
Embossing Powder:  Hero Arts
Design Paper:  Thrift Shop
Card: UPM and Bazzill

I usually make a mess with black embossing powder so today I used a tip I read on Jennifer McGuire's blog.  To stamp in black and emboss in clear - no mess.

Also entering - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

We have a pomergranate tree growing in our back yard.  It's a very pretty tree with all the bright red flowers.  I am so thrilled with the number of flowers on it this year that I have taken this photo to share with you.  Now fingers crossed they will develop into fruit and not split before I can pick them. 

Thank you for dropping by

I will also join Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes

My sister very kindly gave me my Christmas present early.  It is the MFT "Oh Christmas Trees" stamp set.  She thought I would get more use out of the stamp set now rather than after Christmas.  Wise lady.  Thanks Lorraine.
