Embossing Glossy Card

This is a sample of one of the cards my lovely ladies made at class on Monday evening, I used a sponge Dauber to add Frost White Shimmer Mist to mine

But their card had one difference, Glossy Cardstock, here is a sample of what the Glossy Cardstock looked like after we embossed it by putting it through the Big Shot  using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing Folder

doesn't the embossing look fabulous it really made the pattern stand out.

Delightful Decorations Swap

On Sunday the WOW PaperKrafters had  team Training, this month we had training at my place in my Stampin Studio here is the card I made for our team swap,  I decided to use the Delightful Decorations set which is one of my favourite sets  it also has a matching Punch.
For the Decorations I mixed a few drops of Frost White Shimmer with a few drops of Pacific Point  then put this mix straight onto the stamp with a sponge dauber, with just a few drops I stamped and punched out about 16 Decorations, by mixing the shimmer paint and reinker you get a paler and shinier image. 
Stamp set: Delightful Decorations, Christmas Greetings
Ink: Pacific Point
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Whisper White
Other: Frost White Shimmer Mist,Ornament Extra Large Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, 
Big Shot, Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Elegant Bouquet,
Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber,  Tombow

A Blue Card in so many ways

A blue card in more ways than one I made this card and couldn't decide which stamp to use on it, in the end I decided that it was such a pretty card that the Happy Mothers Day stamp  from Occasional Greetings matched perfectly with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder.

Stamp Set: Occasional Greetings
Ink: Tempting Turquoise Reinker, Pacific Point
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Whisper White
Textured Impressions Embossing Folder: Elegant Bouquet
Punches: Scallop Circle & Boho Blossoms
Other: Circle Ice Rhinestone Brad, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Brayer,
Paper piercer, Stampin Sponge, Glue Stick

Now you may be asking why is it a blue card in so many ways, well  #1 My Mum isn't with us anymore,
#2 its not Mothers Day, #3 The stamped image is smudged as it got a couple of drops of rain on it  (or maybe a couple of tears) but I am sure my mum would love it anyway. When we first lost my Mum to Cancer 41/2 years ago just before Mothers day my eldest daughter naturally went and bought her a Mothers day card as she always had (they were very close) then suddenly realised what she had done, but she still took it up to mum's garden at the cemetery and after 4 1/2 years she still takes her a card or flowers for any special occasion.
So even though its not Mothers Day lets all remember our Mum's.
