A Gem of a Challenge - emboss it

Happy Saturday everyone :o)

Still coughing... but I promise I won't moan about it today lol!

Here's my DT card for A Gem of a Challenge, where our new theme is 'emboss it' - I need challenges to remind me to use my embossing folders, I hardly ever think to get them out otherwise.  Just a simple card today, and I've used the pre-coloured version of Janet's cute little image as I'm still not back in colouring mode yet.


Items Used
Pre-coloured digi stamp - Love Bug with Heart - Pink Gem Designs
Embossing - Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder
Paper - Magnolia
NEW Memory Box Precious Hearts die - MCH
(I LOVE this die, it's going to be one of my over-used ones!)
Sentiment - LOTV (embossed in white detail powder)
Frame stamp - Waltzing Mouse Holiday Labels no 14 (birthday pressie from hubby)
Nestabilities Labels 14 dies
Go Kreate circle/ scalloped circle dies
Gem from my stash
Sakura Clear Stardust pen to outline all the hearts (doesn't show in pic!)

It'll probably be mostly Valentine's cards on my blog, for at least the next week - I've got a couple of orders for them, and I need lots to take into the gift shop... oh, and one for hubby of course!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

  32. I don't have any precolored images, but when I'm in the mood for coloring I try and build up a little stack of images. Or I use die cuts, vintage images or stickers if I don't have any colored ones on hand. I should invest in some precolored ones, though, there are so many lovely ones to choose from, like this one. Nice work matching the papers and great layout!
