It's that time again for another Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky. We've been asked to make projects that include embossing. I did a couple of projects for this challenge. The first is...
Paper Piecing By Nikki. She has some remarkable designs, that are so much fun to use. K Andrew Design Stamps seem to fit perfectly with this design. I just love the way this came out. The snowflake border/corner punch set is from the Martha Stewart Collection, that I bought just before Christmas. I added some stickles (which I consider a form of embossing) and ribbon - popdots to make my penguins 'pop'.
Now the stamps I used are from a couple different stamps sets. K. Andrew Design Stamps are just like potato chips - you can't just have one set. And, because they are so interchangeable, fun and affordable, you don't have to settle for just one! "Friends of a feather...." came from the Crafty Friends Set and "Crack me up" and "Uh Oh" came from "Hoot a-Accessories" stamp set.
My next project I have mixed feelings on - but I'm posting it, because I think think the design is good - but perhaps needs some work...The card design/folds came from a Splitcoaststamper.com tutorial. I wanted something that would be a gift, too. Hence, the bookmark in the middle. The last pocket (with the owl on it) is a place to insert a letter or note...
Like I said, not one of my favorite cards...but I think the layout has a lot of possibilities and to show you - here's another card I made for another challenge.
Paper Piecing by Nikki's site for the candy kisses. For the sentiments, I used a bunch of K. Andrew Design Stamps. "Sweet" comes from the bonus set 'Sweet Wishes" that is available free with your order of $25.00 or more at K. Andrew Designs. "Everything is better with chocolate" comes from the 'Coffee & Tea Treats' Set and "Besties are the Best Friends" came from the "Crafty Friends" Set.
