Mod Squad Doily challenge card


     I knew what stamps I would use right away when I saw this challenge over at Mod Squad challenge blog.  I love this stamp set by JustRite called Lace Medallion Labels and the Lace background stamp the goes well with it.
     I stamped the background stamp and the medallion on Kraft paper and embossed it with white embossing powder. I die cut the medallion with the matching die from Spellbinders. I die cut the smaller size from plain kraft paper. I stamped and embossed the saying from JustRites cupcake wishes stamp set.I die cut it with a circle die from spellbinders and I also die cut the small doily and put it under the circle. To add dimension I used foam tape to put the medallion on the card.
   The lace doily is the star of the show for this card. I hope you enjoyed this fast and fun embossed card. Be sure to pop over to Mod Squad Challenge blog to see the other talented paper crafters cards.

Embossed Christmas gift card holders



I kept on playing with my embossing powder and decided to get some gift cards ready for the upcoming Christmas season.These 2 were die cut with Accucut gift card die using Kraft paper. I then stamped a back ground Elegant Fronds from JustRite I also embossed the ornament from JustRite and the ribbon from Ribbons,tapes and lace with a pretty green pearl embossing powder.
  I cut the embossed ribbon piece in 1/2 and matted it with the kraft paper under the ornament.( I did this because it was too short to fit across the width of the card.) I used pop dots to add the ornament.
  I embossed the holly stamp randomly on the card and embossed it to make my own background. I stamped the ornament and embossed it as well. ( I die cut it with the coordinating Spellbinders die.) I used the same trick of cutting the embossed ribbon and hiding the space under the ornament to make it fit on the card.
  I hope you learned a new trick today with the too short embossed ribbon by cutting to make a too short piece to fit.
  I will be entering these in the JustRite Christmas blog hop Friday Challenge,and Mod Squads favorite Technique challenge.
  Thanks for stopping

Simple embossed Kraft and Burgandy Christmas card



   I just kept on playing with my embossing powders and background stamps after I finished my brothers card. This time I kept with the Kraft paper and then embossed with a pretty burgundy pearl embossing powder. I used Elegant Fronds background stamp by JustRite. I also stamped the ornament from JustRite's Noel Christmas Ornaments stamp set, which I die cut with the Spellbinders that coordinates with it.
  I used a corner rounder on the corners of the embossed piece. I then cut it toward the bottom and then cut off about 3/4 of an inch. I then attached it to the card leaving the space between the 2 pieces for the words to fit.I then attached the ornament on the side with foam tape.This was a simple and easy card that could easily be made in volume for Christmas cards.
   This is a card I am entering over at JustRite for their Christmas card linky party for their Friday challenge. and over at Mod Squad Challenge blog favorite technique challenge. 
   Thanks again for stopping and I hope this inspires you to start your Christmas cards.
