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!

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!

Burst of Creativity

Here is a great video which demonstrates a couple of techniques to make a sunburst style card.  I have see this technique used for many different cards and was always wondering how it was done.  I have seen it done for ornaments and a couple of other cards could not figure out how to create that half circle three dimension look.  I am totally inspired and will be posting a card using this idea in the near future.

 

Happy Crafting!
