A New Challenge at Kraftin' Kimmies!
Hey, all! Guess what? I'm up super late, or super early, depending on how you look at it, and it is SNOWING in Albuquerque. Better look quick, because it will be gone in the blink of an eye once the sun makes an appearance. I guess we'll just have to enjoy it while we can ;D
Speaking of snow, my card today features a bit of the white stuff on it, as well. Before I get to that, let me start by saying that this card is for the new Kraftin' Kimmie challenge and the theme is to Use Dry or Heat Embossing. Diana Pickering is hosting this week and she has used Takara on her card, which means that image is the prize for this go round. You have a week to join the fun, just be sure to include some sort of embossing on your card.
My card features Eva. Isn't she fun! I opted for a bit of dry embossing using the TH snowflake texture fade and then I sanded off some of the color to better expose the flakes. Designer Papers with a white core are perfect for this technique. A few Copic dots and a bit of embellishment using Liquid Pearls makes it appear that it's snowing, hopefully...lol!
Visit the shop and pick up some images and be sure to also stop by the blog where you'll find a number of fabulous stamps at a deep discount as part of the Frugal Friday Special. You'll also want to see what beautiful cards the DT created for the embossing challenge. By the way, this is my first official post as one of December's Krafty Guest Designers. So happy!
What are you waiting for? Break out that heat gun or embossing folder and get to stamping ;D
