Something New with Sweet Stampin'


Happy New Year!!!! Hope you had a wonderful New Year's eve, we had a lovely one with yummy food and a glass or two of bubble and we could see all the fireworks from Stockholm, it was amazing.

We have an easy challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week; New Stash or New Occassion. Just remember to stamp, rubber or digi! You have the chance to win a special Sweet Stampin' Goodie Bag!!!!!

I went for the New Stash with this lovely embossing folder and the colours of fireworks. This was so easy to create so I ended up with three cards in no time.

Golden embossing powder.

Challenges:
Crafty Calendar: Something New
House of Cards: Embossing (and/or colours)
4 Crafty Chicks: Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday: Anything Goes

Silver embossing powder. This is my favourite!

Materials used:
Freebie sentiment from the Craft Stamper magazine stamped with embossing ink onto Bazzill cardstock that was cut out with a Michael Strong flower die.

Tim Holtz mini ink pads (Cracked pistachio, Mermaid lagoon, Abandoned coral and Fossilized amber) swept across one of the inner sides of the lovely Darice embossing folder. The the paper was inserted into the folder and run through the Cuttlebug. This technique uses the folder both for texture and colouring :)

The insides of the embossed ornaments were stamped with Penny Black tiny star stamp using the Distress inks and dots of Stickles were added.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated.

Love and hugs
Maarit
