CHA Projects 1

If you were at CHA in Anaheim last month you might have seen some of my designs.
I was asked to design 8 cards, 1 altered, and 1 layout by CSW Distributors using 
Couture Creations "Fresh & Fun"Embossing Folders*.

Today I am sharing some of the cards shown in the display above.  
Each card uses Core'dinations Cardstock in addition to the Couture Creations Embossing Folders.

To create the fun embossing image in "Bursting With Pride" I embossed a piece of Core'dinations Cardstock with Powder Puff embossing folder.  I heat embossed glimmery embossing powder to make it sparkle and then lightly sanded the raised embossed images. 

Debossing was used to create the fun imagery in "A Little Birdie Told Me..." 
 I used the Extra Flint embossing folder with grey Archival Ink to deboss. 
Doesn't this embossing folder  have a bit of retro feel to it?  

I embossed these Maya Road chipboard butterflies with the Almanzo embossing folder.
Once embossed, the butterflies were misted with Tattered Angel's Glimmer Mist and the embossed image was swiped with Momento Ink in a darker shade than the mist.  

Petal Pleasures and Fudge embossing folders were used to simply emboss for "Happy Birthday."
I did sand down the embossed image, just a touch, to have the shades of grey show.  

I hope you enjoyed these embossed creations.
I promise to post some more of them in the next couple of days!

*All of the embossing folders I used in today's post can be pre-ordered at CropStop
