Ok are you ready for our next fun challenge? Your going to love this tutorial done by Gina K.
 Gina will be showing us how to make 2 fast and beautiful techniques by using an embossing folder. So take a look at this video and then share with us your amazing cards.

Here are the Letterpress DT inspiration cards featuring A Day For Daisies digi stamps...


Carolyn
 
TIP:  When putting your supplies away after using them, remember where you put them.  My Stamp-m-jig for stamping a straight sentiment would be a handy piece of equipment to use in stamping the image so it would be straight. 

Lynne aka Her Craftiness
Tip: I purchased a nail brush at the dollar store which is phenomenal to wash my stamps and embossing folders as it get the ink out of the tiny crevices with no mess!

Jennyfer - Jennyfer Creates
Tip: You can wash your embossing folder with soap and water if the ink is reluctant to come out!
 It won't damage anything.

    Marilyn - Marilyn's Crafts

    

    Tip:  When embossing with text, only one side can be inked with this technique. 
    The other side will display the text as reversed.


    Cindy-  In Love with Paper
    TiP:  Ink the edges of your patterned paper layer, too!

    Sandy- A Working Mom's Joy
    TIP: Less is More!  Let your digi and technique do the talkin' for your card, 
    sometimes extra embellishments are just not needed!
     
     
     
     
     


    TIP: Put all your Christmas card making supplies in a basket to keep close at hand during the season of making cards.

    Cristina - VintagePink39

    Tip: Using a baby wipe or makeup remover wipe works really well for cleaning your folders.
