Welcome to our first Blogging Friends Blog Hop for 2017!!!!! Happy New Year to all!
We have a guest blogger this month, Janet Wakeland. Welcome, Janet!
Our theme this month is, of course, the new Occasions Mini catalogs. (Products will be available January 4, 2017!!!)
After looking through my new items to create with, I decided to keep it simple and go with a new set of embossing folders, called Celebrations Duo (sorry, they are not able to be listed in the supply list below).
I made this wonderful colorful birthday card –
Isn’t the embossing really cool? It’s deep and curled the card stock a bit. But this look is really cool for this simple birthday wish!
I just repeated the sentiment, BIRTHDAY TO YOU!, in coordinating colors. Adds a nice touch!
The other card I created used the same folder (there are two in the pack) and I wanted to show the versatility of the folder –
As you can see, I stamped around the embossed image to create even more of a focal point with it!
The way this image is designed, the lettering is really thin in the center. So, when you stamp around it, it actually picks up the color in the inside lettering too!
How cool is this? I think I’m going to be using this folder a lot! It makes for quick and easy cards, not to mention, the WOW factor too!
Together, a GREAT pair of coordinating cards great for anyone!
I’d love for you to take a moment to leave a comment before moving on to the person on the hop. Bloggers love to read what you think of our creations! It’s what keeps us going!
Head on over to Anne Power to see what she has done with this stamp set!
