Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter E. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “E” element will be featured in their post.


If you came from Tonya Whitehurst ~ Heart & Soul Scrappers then you’re on the right track!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Love Always Stamp Set, Slate Ink, White Daisy Organdy Ribbon, Cardstock (Slate, White Daisy), Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, Confetti Embossing Folder, and White Daisy Cards & Envelopes.

I chose Embossing for the letter E.  I haven’t done much embossing even though I like the look because my machine seems to have too much pressure and the images end up cutting through in parts instead of just embossing.  While creating this project, I learned that if I mist my paper with a little water before embossing it loosens up the fibers in the paper and it embosses beautifully without any cutting!  One the second card, I applied ink to my embossing folder before inserting my paper for a different look.  The first one is my favorite.

I love the elegance and simplicity of your cards. I really need to try adding ink to my embossing folder. Good tip on misting the paper.

Very gorgeous embossed cards- I love the extra touch of ink on the second one.

I love embossing too but don’t use it as much as I should! Both cards are so elegant and simple! Beautiful!
