MMM - Dry Embossing

It's the first challenge of the year at Make My Monday and we have made a few changes. Firstly when you you link up you will see a thumbnail pic of your card - this has been kindly donated by Mynnette of the DT and secondly we have done away with the monthly theme. From now on a different member of the team will set the weekly challenge and this week Suzi B kicks us off with some DRY EMBOSSING.
Here is my card

My dry embossing is on the cream background panel - run through my dotty embossing folder. I then sponged over the dots to make them stand out more. I have stamped my images using the '2 Step Stamping technique' - the yellow parts of the flowers were stamped first then a more detailed stamp and a darker coloured ink was stamped over the top. I did the same with the leaves but using green inks.

Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Field Flowers
Ink: Daffodil Delight, tangerine Tango, Certain Celery, Old Olive, Crumb Cake
Card Stock: Naturals Ivory, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Dimentionals
Other: Dotty Embossing Folder
(All Stampin Up products can be ordered through me and delivered direct to your door - please see the details in the top tab).

Thanks for looking - sorry this is late. I started it on time but my husband decided to hold a business meeting in our living room so I had a major cleaning operation to perform!
Bye for now - Jacqueline xx


  1. Beautiful card Jacqueline, love the colours, although it's not a combo that I use the flowers look so pretty. Husbands eh?!!!

  2. I like how you have inked the dots told me them stand out and the double stamping looks great. I must give this challenge a go.

  3. A gorgeous sunny card. The flowers are lovely in the two tones. x
