The Embossibilities are Endless!

Finally I can upload my next class photos. I am not sure what was happening yesterday but whatever it was it's fixed today.
So here you have it... three cards all made with a different technique and embossing folder.
The first card (above) uses the beautiful Tulip embossing folder. I have used it to create a 4 1/4" square card instead of the regular 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" size. I've also heat embossed the gorgeous elephants with the new melon mambo embossing powder. Aren't they sweet?!

Next up is a technique where you emboss only parts of the folder pattern...
I have used an oval shim to create the blank space in the centre of the card. Pretty cool huh. I've also sponged over the embossing to give the card some colour and more defined texture. This is so simple but isn't it effective. I have embossed and sponged the envelope flap to match too. This is a great card to have on standby for those birthdays we all seem to forget.

Lastly is a technique where you brayer colour onto your embossing folder before you put it through the Big Shot...
I love this technique. It makes the embossing really pop from the card. Here I've used the new folder in the latest mini called 'Flower Garden'. It's much prettier than my garden currently which is in dire need of weeding!

oooooh! I love them all, but especially the last one! Although the first pink one is gorgeous, and I love how you sponged the second one....
Glad your computer is cooperating again!
