If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Scrapbooking with KIRSTEN JADE as she has the complete list. If you came here from KIRSTEN JADE’s Blog then you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

La Vie En Rose ~ PML Overlay ~ Puffies ~ Catscrapbooking.comI actually enjoyed working with the PML Overlays from our last blog hop that I wanted to create another.  So I used the Black PML Overlays.  This time I wanted to highlight the LOVE so I used the heart embossing folder with the circle difuser.  I then used my sanding block to make the embossed hearts stand out. Here is the inside of the card:

Technique Blog Hop~ Irresistible Texture

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!

Technique blog badge - Irresistable

This month there are 7 of us highlighting the Irresistible Texture which is featured on page 11 of the new Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book.  Irresistible Texture can be created by using Close to My Hearts fabulous embossing folders.  There are 4 new ones (Hearts, Vine, Diamond and Scallop) in the Seasonal Expressions 1.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

If you are coming from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, you are on the right track!

Heartstrings ~ Love Ya Silly ~ Catscrapbooking.com

I so love embossing folders as they give texture to solid cardstock.  One of the unique features of Close to My Heart cardstock is the white core. So after you use the embossing folders you can come back with a sanding block and turn the embossed area white!! This is what I did with the hearts. I also used a white pen to accent parts of the stamped images.  I also did a little paper piecing to make the eyes of these adorable monsters pop.

Products used:

  • Cardstock ~ Cranberry 1272, Whisper X5929 and Lagoon X5762
  • Paper Pack ~ Heartstrings X7193B
  • Stamp Set ~ Love Ya Silly B1470
  • Ink ~ Daisy WhiteZ2163, LagoonZ2195 , Chrystal Blue Z2117, and Hollyhock Z2128
  • Shimmer Trim ~ Z3024
  • Puffies ~ Stuck on You Z3037
  • Embossing Folder ~ Hearts Z3018

Thanks for stopping by! Please continue onto TONYA WHITEHURST’S Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique! Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!
