Thinking Inking and Raspberry Suite No 10

I'm still playing along to Jennifer's 'Thinking Inking' class - this week it's all about embossing.  The video is fantastic - with some super ideas.  Embossing paper flowers was the one that really appealed to me...


Supplies: Sentiment Stamp - Hero Arts; Flowers and Heart Pearls - Hero Arts; Ribbon - Creative Impressions; Paper - K&Co; Spellbinders Nestabilties Labels 1 Dies; Handmade button.

The flowers were white Hero Arts flowers.  I distressed with Tim Holtz ink, then embossed 3 times with regular clear embossing powder.  I LOVE the result.  And I am enjoying playing with embellishments at the moment too...

I was also inspired by these stunning cards of Jennifer's.  Such elegance and style and beauty.

And speaking of beauty, check these projects by some of my FAVOURITE people and artists.  These girls inspire me so much!

I love this card of Donna's.  Isn't that stamp just adorable.  Her colouring is always awesome.
Deborah is amazing - and this card makes me feel happy.
And finally - check out this project.  It's a vintage WINDOW turned into the most amazing photo frame I've ever seen.  Jenn is an incredible artist!

Enjoy your day.

This is really beautiful Lucy!! Love the effect of embossing on the white flowers and your stamping on that luscious pink paper! The ribbon and stick pins put the final touches on it! I really need to catch up on flickr..so behind!

Hi Lucy! Just love how your flowers turned out! Must give it a go, too! Thanks for the peep to my card! It's not a Hero Arts stamp, though....shhhhhh!

I really like how your card turned out. I enjoy following Jennifer's classes too but haven't made anything yet.

Love this card, Lucy! The clear embossing on the flowers is a great idea...I have used sparkly embossing powder on flowers before, but never went the route of using clear. Will have to try it out! Beautiful, beautiful card. Thanks for the link to my blog...you are a sweetie for doing that! You inspire me, silly! ;) Hugs!
