One folder three ways

I have been having a play with my embossing folders. This first card was using  the tulip embossing folder with white pearl card then I stamped the verse in the centre using a See Dee stamp, I then embossed a second sheet and cut out some of the flowers and added them with sticky pads to give some depth. Not happy to leave it at that I stitched little pearl flowers and beads on the flowers. This card looks much prettier in real life.
 This second card I used the same folder but used a brilliance pearl ink pad and a brayer to ink up one side of the embossing folder, I added a stamped greeting and again stitched little pearls in the centre.
 This last card I inked up the opposite side of the embossing folder and used the debossed side so the flowers are edged in the lilac, again I added a greeting and stitched pearls on them.
I love this folder, I think it will be getting plenty of use, it's avaliable free delivery world wide here

Happy new year

Happy New Year, I have been so busy that I haven't had time to play with all my new stuff! I have cleared my desk and am ready to go just need to decide where to start.  These are a couple of calenders I made as Christmas gifts, I used a kaiser coaster as the base and added the large scalloped nestie on the front and back as the base then I used the Cheery Lynn doily die. The lilac card has paper flowers that I bought but the pink card I made the flowers using the cuttlebug quilling dies.
