Dry Embossed Priceless


I am so happy to see the classy brass templates to go with some of the sets in the new StampinUp! catalog! I LOVE dry embossing! And, when I saw all the new yummy papers, I gasped! I need them all. But, of course, those who know me could guess that the Flowers For You Double Sided DS Paper would FOR SURE be on my first order.

I messed up with the sentiment, so I had to cover it up. I'm not super happy with that part, but it works for a quick card.

I got one cut out of my scalloped punch.... barely. I got a defected one, so another is on the way. I KNOW I'm going to use the heck out of that new punch!! I hope it arrives soon. Gotta love Stampin'Up customer support.. they are awesome!

The butterfly and the flowers on the bottom are all dry embossed with the Priceless Classy Brass Template. The sentiment is from the hostess set So Many Things, and raised up with dimensionals. I used the Word Window Punch to punch that out and cover my boo boo.

Okay... so we are out of milk. So that means a dreaded trip to the grocery store today. I'm also working on some projects with a deadline, and my sitting time is limited, so I'll try and post again soon. I'm so happy to have my new stuff from Stampin'Up!! Hope you all get to play soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so jealous!! You can actually emboss!!! HOW DO YOU DO IT??? I've used every kind of stylus I know of and my images never POP like that!!! I usually end up tearing the paper trying to get my images UP!!

Any tips/pointers would be much appreciated!! Mary

Cambria, How pretty! I bought that brass template and can't wait to play with mine. Love your card & just want you to know that you inspired me to dust off my sewing machine & start using it on cards. There are a few on my blog recently where I've sewed on them if you want to check them out. Ida
