Whew! I have been feeling inspired. Fun, fun, fun! Today the inspiration comes from Dawn McVey. She is fabulous. I own nearly every set she has designed. I just love that bottom left card so that’s where I started. I included a couple of her signature color combos: berry sorbet and pure poppy and Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf.
I have a few embossing tips. The chisel end of a Copic blender pen works great for removing most bits of stray embossing.
In order to emboss the die cut images, first I used an embossing buddy (forgot to on the rabbit-oh bother). I used VersaMark to stamp the image. The I attached the die cut to a piece of foam adhesive. I took my paper piercer and stuck it into the foam. Then I poured on the embossing powder and heated it. It worked great.
I have also found that embossing isn’t very messy if you don’t heat your image over a pile of loose embossing powder. :) (ask me how I know-such a revelation)
The knit background set is a whole lotta fun to use and easy to line up.
