Be Inspired August Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends

Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop for August.  You are currently visiting Jackie Aitken in Western Australia. If you are following the hop, you may have arrived here having just visited Monica Gale. If you are just joining us, grab a comfy seat and be sure to hop all the way through for loads of amazing idea's and inspiring projects shared by the Be Inspired Design Team using this month's theme EMBOSSING.

I am a huge fan of embossing folders and adore how you can transform the look of an ordinary piece of card stock into something truly stunning that has texture, simply with one pass through my Big Shot machine. In saying that, I love heat embossing even more! I was hooked the very first time I heat embossed something and it still buzzes me out today.

Today's card uses both types of embossing, - dry and heat. Starting with a Thick Whisper White card base, to this another layer of Whisper White which has been embossed using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. This is such a pretty and versatile Embossing Folder as sometimes I find patterns can be restricting. The cursive font is gorgeous and you can actually read the script!

Layers of Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana card stock have been adhered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The Shimmery White card front has been die cut using the Rectangle Stitched dies as were the Apple and Cabana layers. 

Using the leaf image, I have white heat embossed the Shimmery card stock and then given it a light wash of Coastal Cabana ink using an Aqua Painter. The stamped images have been coloured using Stampin' Blends, fussy cut and then adhered around the die cut sentiment with mini dimensionals. A couple of Artisan Pearl Embellishments were adhered to the centre of the flowers to finish the card.

That's it from me, crafty friends. Thanks so much for stopping by today. The Be Inspired Design Team appreciate the time you have invested to visit our blogs today, Thank You. Up next in this months Be Inspired Blog Hop is super talented Cathy Caines.
