pressure embossing



Hi, hello, welcome! I’m happy to be hopping along with Pinkfresh Studio for their latest release today! I’m sharing project pics first, and then there’s lots of fun info for you to read about afterwards (HINT: Prizes are involved… Just sayin’… 😉 )

This Hello With a Bouquet Die is big and lovely—I really like that I can get two cards out of it!. I had this one 6x6” piece of pretty floral patterned paper that I’ve been hoarding for, like, ever and decided it was time to just get on with it. Done!

Used Pinkfresh Studio’s Liquid Watercolors on this Happy Hugs design…

Pressure embossed the Geo Star 2 Die, instead of actually die-cutting—such a fab background this makes! The paper looks totally quilted, right?!

Same set, different look! These little huggers are on an Action Wobbler so they wiggle & bobble—SO fun!

Had to glue a pom pom onto that cap. Had to. Resistance was futile.

Hope these projects have inspired!

Links to the entire release are listed at the very end of this post—there’s a lot to love!

This is one of my favorite layouts--fun to use with tall sentiments, and accent with smaller images.  It just... works.  :)

I just stamp the sentiment onto a small panel of watercolor paper and then cut a wavy line through it.  Watercolor the bottom half, splatter paint on the top half.  Piece them back together with a small gap when I mount them to the base card.  And, of course, they're popped up on foam tape.  *snort*

I pressure embossed the snow texture into the card front with a 6x6 Snowfall Embossing Folder by Alexandra Renke--flipping it around makes me think of sea bubbles rising up from the bottom of the ocean.  LOVE THAT.  Well, that and the fact it's a 6x6 folder; makes it easy to use it vertical or horizontal on the card.



Those little clear drops by HAI Supply always get me--they're so crystal clear, they look like they're made of glass!  Just a trio; no more, no less.  I know, I know.  I'm such a weirdo when it comes to that.  But, I already know that one more would have been one too many.  Balance woulda' been thrown off and the planet woulda' rolled off its axis.

Just sayin'...
