Embossing binge

Hi Crafty Friends

I've been having a bit of a blitz on embossing recently.

For this card, I embossed the image with my favourite (and now precious, since it's been discontinued) Patina Bronze embossing powder. I then masked off the background and sponged the strip with DIs. The frame is made with a Nellie Snellen corner die.  I intended putting a sentiment at the bottom, but tried several, but wasn't happy with them so I left it off. Any suggestions, as to what to do, would be very welcome.

This one involved several stages to complete the image. I inked the background with Antique Linen, and stamped the music and flourish faintly with Vintage Photo. Then I used a negative stamp (from Hero Arts) and embossed it with clear embossing powder, before sponging the flowers/leaves with Victorian Velvet and Bundled Sage

Hope you like them
Happy Crafting


  1. Two fab cards - I like them both, very much


  2. Brilliant cards . love the poppy one, so cleverly done . X

  3. These are awesome & SOOOO much better than a store bought card... well done :)

  4. Thank you all for your very kind comments. Really appreciated

  5. Both cards are utterly beautiful, and in my opinion the first one looks absolutely fine sans sentiment, I love the technique you have used to create the image on the second one xxx
