One Embossing Folder, 3 different ways.. Part 2

Hi Everyone. Today I'm going to share with you the second project I have made using the Winter Village Embossing Folder (EF).. But not before I let you know how our new recruit (Holly) is getting on..As you can see she is growing at a rate of knots.. These pictures, taken just 2 Weeks apart show just how much she has grown and how beautiful her colouring is.. She certainly seems to be a very happy puppy and is not short of love and affection or cuddles!!
On to equally important matters.. Crafting! Well, almost as important as the Holster!!This was the first of the 3 projects I made with the EF and therefore probably my favourite... I love how the whole thing came together and the fact that the EF has enabled me to Decoupage it has added a whole other dimension to its use..I started off by colouring a piece of White card stock with Weathered Wood and Worn Lipstick Distress Inksand then ran the image through the Cuttlebug Machine.On a separate piece of White card stock, I embossed the image first this time and then applied Shabby Shutters Distress Ink to the image to highlight the Treesand then cut away the skyline.On a Third piece of card stock I again embossed the image first and then coloured it with Pumice Stone Distress Ink to highlight the Church. This time cutting away the skyline and the Trees..Finally, I embossed the image on a plain piece of White card stock and cut away the skyline, the Trees and the Church..I then mounted all of the layers together to form my winter scene. Adding some Crystal Stickles for some Christmas Sparkle..This is such a diverse EF and really could be used for several different occasions other than Christmas.. Hence the fact that I have yet to put a sentiment on it!!
So, that's two down, one to go.. Back next week with the final instalment.
Have a great weekend and thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.

  2. I saw all the samples using this EF in the flesh, so to speak, and what inspiration Andy. There is a style to suit all here. A true example of exploring our craft tools to the full. Hope my efforts will look as good. Thanks for the inspo.
