Here's the recipe for Cooking It Up with Katie's latest challenge:
The last time embossing was part of a recipe I forgot about it till after I had the whole card put together, soooo this time I made sure I made an embossed layer before things got put together. Sadly it doesn't show very well in the photo but the beige banner type cross piece is embossed with dots.
I cheated a little. Instead of using a punch I used a die to make the flowers. I am loving these flowers, they are made with the new Royal Rose die-namic from My Favorite Things. I can't stop raving about it. If you scroll through my blog you'll see that I don't use a lot of flowers but now that I have this die I'll be using them more often.
This week is also the prize week at Mojo Monday so I had to make a card for that challenge. It's not I need to win a prize, not that a prize wouldn't be appreciated, but it's for bragging rights, kwim. Who doesn't want that honor?
Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Clearly Sentimental About Children" (at least I think that's the name)
ink - Close To My Heart "Desert Sand" and Ranger "Scattered Straw"
paper - Stampin' Up "Soft Sky", "River Rock" and "Wild Wasabi" cs; Melissa Frances "5th Avenue" dp
miscellaneous - pearls; manilla tag;silk ribbon; embossing folder; My Favorite Things "Royal Rose" die-namics; sewing machine
