Embossing Lines

Hi guys. I love including embossed backgrounds on my cards. Of  course, that usually means embossing some cardstock with my Cuttlebug, but recently I've discovered the Score Pal. It's a very handy tool to have when creating projects with lots of exact folding...(helps get those those folds perfect every time)...but you can also use the ScorePal to create your own embossed backgrounds. (get a little more hands-on)

So today I want to show a card I made using an embossed background made with my ScorePal.  It's really not that complicated -- just lines...but it's different from the regular Cuttlebug embossing folders, so that makes it different. :)

Starting off with my embossed background, I layered some patterned paper on top. I wanted a bit more definition between the two papers, so I added a punched border on the bottom. Using my Cuttlebug, I cut a beautiful Creatable...and stamped on my sentiment. I added foam dots to the give it a bit of dimension. Then I stamped a flower stamp I borrowed from a friend...and cut it out. Finally I added some punched leaves...and the pink pearls. :)

I must say -- it turned out so pretty. I'm definitely loving the color combination. :) How about you?

Summery Birthday

Hi guys. Can you believe it's September already!?!! The summer sure flew by!!!

It's been busy...and a different type of summer, that's for sure! Our little guy is now almost 7 months old!! He keeps me busy when I don't have other jobs to do around the place, so that leaves me even less time to sit down and make cards. But he's sooooooooooo worth it! :)

I was running short on my Happy Birthday cards I decided to make a few and stock up again. I borrowed some awesome flower stamps from a friend...and set out to see what I could come up with . I love the way this card turned out! I really didnt' have anything in mind -- just basically stamped the different flower stamps with different colors...and then finally added a few circle stamps from a different Stampin' Up stamp set to tie them together.

I stamped and cut one big flower out and added it with some dimentional tape...just so the card wasn't all flat. I love love love it! Very bright and cheerful. :)

I found some great challenges to enter the card into:
(I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!!)
