Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop. Well then, you've come to the right place! If you've been following the links from the beginning, you've just landed here from Betty's blog, where she featured the fabulous new colors of Embossing Powders. (If you get lost along the way, just click the banner above to find the complete hop list and links!)
Today I am showcasing the Flower Garden Embossing Folder. I think embossing, whether dry or heat, is my favorite technique, so I'm always excited to see what Stampin' Up! comes up with in their new catalogs....and this one certainly didn't disappoint! (Not that they ever do!)
First up is a card near and dear to this California girl's heart....California Poppies!
(As always, you can click on the images to see more detail, along with all the mistakes, lol.)
Next is a card that combines both dry embossing and heat embossing. It has sort of an Asian feel, don't you think?
The last card is much softer looking. The flowers were embossed along the short side of the cardstock, and after rubbing Stampin' Pastels on the stems and petals, the focal image was cut and matted on the Rich Razzleberry background.
Your next stop is Twila's blog featuring the Touch of Kindness stamp set. I adore that little bird bath!!!
After you have visited all the stops on the hop, I hope you will hop over and visit Stampin' Addicts! This is the greatest group of friendly, creative, helpful people (all addicted to Stampin' Up!) that you would ever want to meet. Everyone is welcome, from beginning stamper to seasoned demonstrator, so stop by and say 'Hi', and tell them Cindy sent you!
