Something a little different….

Good afternoon folks, the sun is still shining here in Yorkshire and it is shaping into a rather nice weekend. It really feels like we are just about in Spring – I love this time of the year with all the signs of new life everywhere, you can’t help but be in a good mood.

Going to keep my post short and sweet because my eyes are playing up. That was short lived from this morning but I am sure it will all resolve itself soon. I am just going to post the basics just now but will pop back later and add some picture links for you.

Have you seen the new embossing folders from Darice? Sara from Crafter’s Companion was showing them earlier on Create & Craft and I was lucky enough to get some to play with …..  OMG they are amazing. They emboss so deeply compared to other folders I have used – I was seriously impressed.

This is using one of the beautiful borders ….. it is from the Flourishes set

It is a really simple card with just some ribbon and punched butterflies with a few pearls to complete it. The Core’dinations paper is perfect to use with the folders. I didn’t realise until today that Darice own Core’dinations – Sara is full of loads of info lol.

A close up to show the amazing depth of the embossing.

Ok, so here is another sample I made ….. even simpler than the last but this time using the 5” x 7” embosiing folders.

Layered using Core’dinations – there are so many gorgeous pads available now.

I have just added some ribbon with a couple of ribbon sliders, lots of pearls, stickles and a sentiment.

I will pop back later if I can to add the pic links – must admit I think they are really helpful when looking for products. Enjoy your weekend
