Paper Girls Challenge #148: Embossing

The Paper Girls Challenge Blog is all about embossing this week. Dry embossing, heat embossing, you name it, it will work. For today's challenge, I finally got out my Topography stamp set from Neat and Tangled. I loved the possibilities with this, especially with my watercolors. The watercolors are the wonderfully opaque Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints. They are simply delicious.
I love the sentiment. And the melon color of the cardstock picks up the very color from in the painted card. Make sure to check out the challenge, and add your own project! Pin It

PAPER GIRLS CHALLENGE BLOG: Challenge #147 - Travel

Good Morning! Today I am sharing with you a fantastic card that I created with some older products. I love using materials I have on hand, as getting to the craft store seems to be more difficult lately with a crazy schedule and so much to do.  For today's Paper Girls Challenge Blog project, we are focusing on Travel. I chose to take this in the direction of a travel card using Authentique's Explore Collection and Lawn Fawn stamps and matching dies, colored with Chameleon Markers.
I loved the little pops of violet throughout the card. I purchased the stamps forever ago, but only got the dies fairly recently. This was a great way to reuse those items I got so long ago. The Diamond Press made the small dies so easy to cut out.

Supplies Used:
Authentique Paper (Explore Collection kit: Ten, Eleven, Details, Components die cuts), Lawn Fawn: (Happy Trails stamps and Happy Trails Lawn Cuts dies), Chameleon Pens, Versafine ink, Neenah Solar White paper, Diamond Press die cut machine Pin It
