+
Monthly Technique Challenge: Embossing

Sympathy cards are by far my least favorite to create.

Recently a special friend of mine lost her godfather, so she asked that I create her a special card to give his family.

This is what I came up with:

With our Monthly Technique Challenge, Embossing, in mind I decided to do both dry and heat embossing.
If you didn't know, SweetStamps.com is now Home oGlobecraft & Piccolo (formerly Globecraft Memories / Piccolo Decor)!  For this card I used some of the awesome bookboard accent crosses!  Love them!  Perfect for sympathy cards, confirmation, etc. cards/projects!!

I just love the Pearl Embossing Powder!

Miss Kate Cuttables and Peachy Keen Stamps Co-Hop

Happy Saturday!

I am super excited for today!!
Miss Kate Cuttables and Peachy Keen Stamps has joined up for a Co-Hop!
What a great combination!!

Check back each day on the Miss Kate Cuttables Blog and the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog for all kinds of wonderful inspiration!  The hop is a whole week!!

I had such a wonderful time creating my project!

----------

For my Co-Hop project I thought it would be fun to create a fun candy package for my little girl!
She just loves when I create things for her!
 I love how it turned out!!
And I am sure she will love it!

I used the Nested Label to create the main packaging!

The large main cut I used was the Butterfly!
Love it!
I used the Peachy Keen Stamps Everyday Character Face Parts (PK-493) to add the cute face on this Butterfly!  Really brings the die-cut butterfly to life!!
So adorable!!

I created the "Wishing you a" and "day!!" in a word document and printed it out.
The "beautiful" was created in Make The Cut and cut out.
I love that Miss Kate Cuttables now offers some really fun fonts!
For this particular sentiment, I used the MK Happy Font!

I also used the fun Say It with Flowers set from Peachy Keen Stamps to add the lovely flower accents on this package.  A perfect added touch!!

----------

Tall Tulips with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!
This is my second post for the day, so be sure to see my post below as well!

Yay!!

I love the new Tall Tulips (H251) stamp!

Perfect for spring cards!  I just love seeing my tulips blooming!

One thing I also really liked about this stamp is that it is perfect for using the Paper Piecing Technique!!

Here's a close-up of the paper pieced tulips:
Pretty!

Yay for spring!!
