New crafting TOOL alert!
Crafter's Essential Scoring Board
I used the Crafter's Essential Scoring Board to add a hint of dimension by scoring the lines on the Mosaic Diamonds Stamp Set. It is difficult to photograph, but trust me the lines are there :)

PIGMENT Re-Inkers are here!!!
Pigment Ink Re-inker Bundle

Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder

Here's a QUICK little card heat embossed with GOLD embossing powder. 
  • Simply whisk embossing ink over the smooth side of the Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder
  • Then run your paper and folder through you machine. 
  • Add EMBOSSING powder, heat and PRESTO! GOLDEN paper :)
Next I up-cycled the ALTENEW packing Tissue paper that occasionally comes with my orders for a touch of glamour.
Tied with Love Die

Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder
Mixed media inked colored background with added texture from the Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder.. I LOOOOVE how this folder makes the paper look like bubble wrap! I gathered several left-over elements for a freestyle cluster as the focal point of this card. And just a few varied widths of GOLDEN paper from the QUICK card above, for a kiss of glamour.

Sunshine Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder
& Courageous You Stencil Bundle

MORE up-cycled the ALTENEW packing Tissue paper is the base of the is card, however, any dark cardstock will due for this technique.

PREP the tissue paper:
NEXT run the dark cardstock through the Sunshine Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder
SWIPE the white ink over the raised edges for more definition
(INK white pigment ink through the Courageous You Stencil for cleaner results)
ADD gold Heat embossed centers to the blooms ( Gold GEL pen is an easy alternative)
FINISH with the Sentiment die cut from VELLUUM and GLITTER cardstock

Must-have Gel Pen Set
