I made this card for my bff in the hopes that I could convince her to use embossing paste! It’s so fun!
For some reason, I ended up doing a camera theme for all these cards! Totally not planned. So for the chevron background I colored the embossing paste with distress inks and carefully applied it to the stencil.
I love how the embossing paste gives the card such beautiful dimension! Then I sprinkled on some clear glitter and allowed it to dry for about 30 to 40 minutes. The camera and sentiment are from the Silhouette store and the mini Polaroid is from Papertrey Ink. For the sentiment, I did the same technique where I added layers of clear embossing paste to make it nice and shiny.
For the final touches, I added a little wink of stella to the camera and enamels dots in silver and white! Embossing paste – you rock!
I made a series of thank you cards that I will be sharing for all the acts of kindness that I am lucky to witness in my life.
For this series of cards, I used this awesome chevron stencil from heidi swapp and my favorite color combo from Hero Arts shadow inks:
I love that this stencil can be used for inks and embossing pastes! I also tried a technique that I learned from Jennifer McGuire where you add layers of embossing powder to the sentiment. I love the shiny look:
Remember to take the time to thank all the loved ones in your life!
Even sleepy Scotties need to take a selfie…hehe!
After a weekend filled with dog beaches, long walks, and doggie bakeries…My Scotties were super sleepy on the car ride home! lol! Caught them snoozing away on my lap! They are so sweet!
I made several thank you cards for all the wonderful friends and family in my life! As you can see, I am still hooked on the Scottie nautical theme!
I just love the little anchors and the sail boat! The Paper Smooches sentiment was perfect for these cards!
Thank you for all the love! Muah!
What noise does a bear make? lol
These cute and cuddly bears probably make only hugging and kissing noises!
