Embossed Eleanor

Today was so much fun!  It was another Liz & Sandy Friday.  We met at the office around 10 and stamped until after 3.  I got about a card an hour created.  This was the first one.  I was going to use a Natural Composition flower frame on it, but, as Liz said, “You’ve got a lot going on, there.”  So what did I do?  I added more stuff!  I decided to emboss and sponge the main layer, take off the specialty paper, and, well – here’s the finished product.

Stamps:  Everything Eleanor, Tea Shoppe; Ink:  Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Pool Party classic; Daffodil Delight stampin’ write marker; Paper:  Naturals Ivory, Island Indigo card stock; Other:  Modern Label punch, Dazzling Details, Big Shot, Fancy Fan embossing folder, Delicate Designs embossing folder, sponge dauber, stampin’ dimensionals

This could use a little crumb cake ribbon, but for the most part, I’m happy with it.  I love the way the embossing turned out.  The delicate designs folder almost looks like real lace.

“Stamping Days” always challenge me, because I invariably need something that none of us brought.  It’s a fun challenge.

When I got home, I found three cards waiting for me, and, wow! – are they awesome!  All three were so amazing and totally different.  I can’t wait to show them off at workshops and club.

Have a great day – and thanks for stopping by.

    As I told you yesterday when I watched you “create,” this is fabulous! I love it, and have all sorts of plans for how I will CASE it, but change it just enough to make in mine. Such an inspiration you are. Here’s to the next creative Friday. Hugs.

    I LOVE the way this turned out – am waiting for my supplies so I can do a similar card with the border and the background embossing!
