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.
