I Can Emboss After All . . .

I think embossing is so pretty on patterned paper and decided to give it a whirl last night while cleaning up my mess and putting stuff away. My initial thought was to make a card for this week's Stamp Simply challenge on the No Time to Stamp? blog. The theme is week, however, is modern, so this card won't work. Its appearance, I think, is more on the old-fashioned side. It was simple - a 10-minute (or less) card - with no flying embossing powder.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Vineyard Berry, and Blush cardstock; That's Amore Level 2 paper packet; Vineyard Berry ink pad; VersaMark ink pad; Vineyard Berry embossing powder; Stampin' Up Inspired by Nature and CTMH Say it in Style stamp sets; Ribbon from my stash; Embossing gun.

Happy Friday! My plans for the weekend include continuing the little (big actually) organization project I started on Wednesday, doing a little stamping, catching up on some correspondence, and spending Sunday with my family - maybe evening cooking a special meal. What are you going to do? Whatever it is, I hope it's something you enjoy. That's what weekends are for! Later . . .

I KNEW all along you could emboss without having a powder party! *Ü* This card is just gorgeous in its simplicity. I love the colors!

Good luck on your organizing project, and please share when completed as I need to jumpstart my organizing of my whole house! LOL

I didn't make it into my corner yesterday due to Jessica's request (demand?) for a project. I am looking forward to sharing it when it's completed. I have lots of crafty ideas to work on...we'll see if any come to fruition!

Have a wonderful weekend!
