This is my blog where I share things I create with my Stampin' Up products and stamps. I love to make cards, 3-D projects and scrapbook pages.

I Made My Own Embossing Frame Folder
If you are like me, you are glad that January is half over. I think we have all had crazy weather, I'm really tired of temperatures under 20 degrees and I've had enough snow for the Winter! We are less than a month away from Valentine's Day so we will be needing ideas for fun things to make for friends and family for that special day.
I absolutely LOVE the new Framed Tulips Embossing folder! I have spent a bit of time hoping that the new Stampin' Up catalog this Summer will have several other embossing folders to choose from. The frame-type folder makes creating a fantastic card so much quicker and easier! Then I thought about the embossed card I made last year with the Heart To Heart punch and decided I could do a frame with the smallest hearts from that punch too.
I punched out a bunch of hearts and lined them up, centered them and stuck them down, 3 in a stack. When I embossed the Pretty in Pink paper I used the platform, a Standard Cutting Plate, the Silicone pad and another Standard Cutting Plate. It took a while to adhere all those little hearts but now I have my own Heart to Heart frame embossing folder to use as often as I want to!
The second card uses the stamp set Dreams DuJour. I embossed the top half only with the Polka Dot Embossing folder and tied the organdy ribbon around it. I mounted it on a piece of Rose Red cardstock for a quick and easy card.
I'm smelling my bread baking. I reckon I need to go get it out of the oven before it gets too dark! I'm having a dinner party tonight so I want that bread to be perfect :~)
