Faux Embossing Thank You

Inspired by Julie Ebersole’s video “Hello Monday 03.07.2016”
I love how easy this is to do. Starting by stamping Hero Arts Butterflies from their Stamp and Die Cut Set (C111) on Bristol. Embossed with Gold embossing powder. Colored with Zig Clean Color Brushes. Die cut the butterflies. Die cut several Thank Yous from First Edition Traditional Dies from Neenah cardstock. (Used Julia’s tip for die cutting using four thicknesses of a dryer sheet. Great way to keep from having to dig everything out of the die. It cut better also) Sprayed glue on the words and mounted on Neenah cardstock. Has the look of being embossed without an embossing folder. Cut 2 Thank Yous out of black cardstock and 1 out of Black Pearl Shimmering Cardstock by Crafter’s Companion. Used the black pearl for the side panal also. Very happy with the way it turned out.

Welcome to my blog. I started my blog so that I could share all of the things that I am passionate about not only in the creative world but in all areas of my life. I retired over 10 years ago from the field of education. I was a Resource Specialist in a Teacher's Resource Library. My job allowed me to do the things I love every day. I love creating things with many different media. Papercrafting is my favorite. I helped teachers create bulletin boards and instructional materials for their classrooms. Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time creating cards and I love all of the different techniques and media available. I also am very active in wildlife conservation and spend many hours volunteering with the Wildlife Conservation Network.
