I was so excited to receive my new M-Bossibilitie folder from Spellbinders yesterday, I made these 3 cards using just the folder. The embossing is so good you hardly need anything else to make a nice card.
The first card I embossed on white card stock then just lightly inked over the embossing with some distress inks.
The blue card has just been embossed using co-ordination card and then sanded.
The pink card has been embossed on vellum.
Hope you all love this embossing folder as much as I do!
For this card I have used the lovely Edgar stamp from Visible Image, I stamped him with a distress ink but didn't colour him in as I wanted him to look a bit 'vintage'. I have had these chipboard pocket watches for ages so thought it was a good time to use them. I double embossed the watch face to give a glass/vintage look to it. My background papers are from Kanban and the gold embossed watches are an embossing folder by Sizzix.
I would like to enter this card into the Visible Image Challenge 'A Time to Reflect'

This is my Midway Inspiration card for the challenge 'Button Up' over at DCC & Friends.
I started with a white 8x8 scalloped edged card which I inked and coloured with my Distress Inks. Background is from First Edition Summer Breeze and my trusty Spellbinder Dies for the sewing machine, dummy, thimble, cotton reel and 'material'. The buttons and scissors and metal sewing machine are from my 'stash'. If you have not already entered our challenge you still have time to do so. http://www.dccfriendschallenges.net/
