Blog Hop Candy

It's not too late to check out the INKlings Blog Hop & have a chance to win some lovely handmade goodies - I am contributing these 2 cards along with a stash of retired ribbon. All you need to do is start the Blog Hop here & comment on each of the 10 blogs before midnight AEST on 3rd April (sorry candy only available to Australian residents & non-SU! Demonstrators) I made these 2 cards using up some scraps from my Blog Hop layout & the Inlaid Embossing technique. It is a really simple technique - simply stick on your punched, cut or die cut images & then run the lot through the Bigshot. My first card uses die cut flowers from the Birds & Blooms Sizzlets & the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder My second card uses the butterfly from the new Strength & Hope stampset that have been inked in Daffodil Delight & the edges rolled in Tangerine Tango. Here is a close up to show you the inlaid embossing - I have used the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder for this one - I really don't know how I survived without a Bigshot, as I seem to use it on everything!

Stampsets: Strength & Hope, Inspired by Nature

Cardstock: Garden Green, Daffodil Delight,m Whisper White, Sweet Stitches DSP

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi

Accessories: Basic Rhinestones, Birds & Blooms Sizzlets, Perfect Polka Dot, Vintage Wallpaper & Framed Tulips Embosing Folders

Alana, thanks for the lovely ideas with the Strength and Hope set. It is near the top of my very long wish list.

Your cards are very textural and exude a very "springy" feel. Well done!
