Stamping with embossing folders and IBS stamps!

Hi friends! Here are 2 cards I made using the "stamping with embossing folder" technique. I used distress inks, 2 different colours, finger daubers, water colour paper and glimmer mist.  First get an embossing it and using the debossed side, ink it up using the daubers and distress inks...I like it fully covered but you can ink only certain parts. Once you are happy with how you have inked it, spritz it with your glimmer mist, about 6 times, I used a pale colour, or you can use water...then lay your piece of water colour paper on it and gently rub around the water colour paper and hold it there for about 20 seconds to let the ink penetrate the paper , then lift off and use on a card! I layered a coloured mat under it and then on cream card. Then I stamped a sentiment from IBS stamps. These stamps are bold and stand out great ! Give it a go! TFL! Many blessings xx

Sweet Pea...

Hi friends! I have a card for you using the beautiful Sweet Pea paper and collectables from Kaisercraft. What a pretty collection this is, I have made a few so will show them over the next few days. I also used a stamp from SU. I hope you are all well and finding some time to is cooling down now, so hopefully we have seen the last of summer, even though I know some of you from over "the pond" are looking forward to your summer, I LOVE our QLD winters, averaging  6 to 20 Celcius, with the odd 0 to 12 to make us know we are alive lol! We don't have heating, no need, so the beanies and bed socks and ugg boots come in handy by crikey!  Have a great day! TFL! Many blessings xx
