I have decided to showcase the beautiful Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which is one of the new level 1 Saleabration items added on February 15th. My card layout is quite simple, as I wanted the focus to be on the embossing folder.

I embossed a piece of thick Whisper White cardstock which I had spritzed first as this gives a deeper impression). Once dry, I sponged on ink with a sponge dauber in a circular motion. I used Blushing Bride ink for the flowers and Pear Pizazz for foliage. I like the subtle and imperfect effect this technique gives. I also like that you get a variation in colour within the sponging, as this really shows the different dimensions in the folder.

I trimmer the embossed piece down to 9cm x 13cm and then attached it to a very thin mat of Pear Pizazz (I allow 3mm extra for this, so my Pear Pizazz piece was 9.3cm x 13.3 cm). I then mounted this piece onto a standard C6 sized Blushing Bride card.

For my greeting, I have used a new punch which is available to purchase in my online store from tomorrow. It's called the Story Label Punch. It fit's so many of our sentiment sets and I really like the interesting shape which lends itself to lots of layering opportunities. To make the mat for the punched shape, I cut two extra shapes in Blushing Bride and cut one of these in half vertically and one horizontally. I then attached each half onto the back (the side without the stamping) slightly overlapping the white punched shape. When you have attached all 4 pieces, all edges have a nice border.

To finish my card, I attached a piece of metallic ribbon, which is actually Petal Pink, but works fine. I attached the stamped and edged shape over the top of this with Dimensionals. This card will now be going off to my Mum for her birthday next month.

I've also completed a second version of this card. This time I have embossed a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and have used crumb cake ink to sponge over the embossing with a Stampin' Sponge.

I hve used Fresh Fig and Soft Suede as my other colours. For the greeting, I did some layering with the Story Label Punch to show another way to use it. I have layered a 1.5" punched circl in Fresh Fig behind the Story Label punched piece, and then a strip of wood grain paper and a greeting. The greetng and the speckled stamping on the Very Vanilla cardstock were both from Beauty Abounds stamp set. I must use those bronze Leaves Trinkets (from Annual Catalogue) more often as I love them.

Lovely cards Claire, I think that folder is going to be popular!

Wow, Claire these cards are stunning and I really love the unusual colour combo of your second card.

Caroline

Oh Claire, what gorgeous colours in your cards! I love the Blushing Bride mat behind the sentiment on your first card, the card is so soft and pretty! The Country Floral TIEF is my absolute favourite embossing folder and looks great in the Crumb Cake too!

Yes, I love the dimension and depth that you get with this stunning embossing folder. It looks fantastic in both cardstock colours and I love the rustic look and layering of your second card!

Judy May

Both lovely cards, Claire, but I LOVE the soft pastel colours you have sponged onto the white embossed layer of the first card. It looks so Spring!

OMG, Claire, I thought the first card was stunning, and then I scrolled down to see the second card. Swoon! They are both amazing in their own ways.
