ID: MC June/14 - Ecstasy Crafts cards
size: 5"w x 7"h ea

Created: June 12, 2014

 There's a challenge on Ecstasy Crafts with a chance to win $100 product if you use one of their newest embossing folders. They are really nice, so ordered a couple... these are the cards I made using them and will enter in the contest. Both cards use Gelatos to color the embossing folders prior embossing.

I'm also using a  quote & sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design


I started by applying Gelatos to the embossing folder (Aqua, Dk Blue & Pink) misting with water, then placing my watercolor paper in the folder and running through my machine. Dried. Then cut around the design. Hit the high points with a Distress pad (Spun Sugar) and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder.

Side folded my cream toned cardstock. Masked off the central area and stamped the "Happy Birthday" repeatedly using Versafine "Vintage Sepia and hitting it here and there with "Black Soot".

Used a Black gel pen to draw in my faux stitching. Stamped my quote/sentiment (part of 1 stamp and a sentiment stamp). Colored the little flower with Prisma colored pencils.

Adhered the Garden Spray to card with 3D foam tape. Wrapped my Sari ribbon several times around my hand, then tied a double not to create the fluffy bow. Adhered with a glue gun.

On the inside, embossed the design again using the dirty folder, then went over the high points with a dirty blue and pink sponge. Stamped the sentiment with the black.

ID: MC June/14 - EC Burst of Spring - Wheresoever card

I applied Gelatos to the embossing folder (Aqua, green) misting with water, then placing my white cardstock in the folder and running through my machine. Dried.

Side folded my blue cardstock and adhered my embossed piece. Adhered the smoke square shaped rhinestone border (picked up on sale at Michael's yesterday...).

Stamped the quote with the black. Adhered the glittered butterfly (from a previous project).

The bow is a filigree design I created and then made in to a bow shape using my electronic cutter. Added the amber square rhinestone.

The quilled flower is one I made in my quilling session yesterday, crimping the quill strips prior coiling. Added the humungous pearl detail and adhered the flower onto some pieces of red Sari ribbon adhered with a glue gun.
