Sorry about skipping a day. Unfortunately I had gotten sick so lost several days just staying in bed and recovering. Still trying to get better, however, at least I am able to get some more posts done.
This year I really played with my embossing folders and coloring the embossed areas. It was my goal to use things that I already have but really expand with how it’s being used. Coloring the raised areas with Distress Oxides allowed me to make plain paper into festive backdrops. For this one, I made a simple shaker card. To make it a bit more special, I stamped a sentiment inside the shaker for added interest.
Both of these projects featured are great for using up scrap paper lying around.
My Day 18 is a long tag using Tim Holtz foam stamps. I really love the retro flavor of this stamp set and using Distress Inks really gave it a kid’s paint sort of feel.
