Dry and Heat Embossing and lots of colour

Good afternoon blogland, the weather here is dull and miserable but a good day to get some crafting done.  Here are a few cards I made for birthdays and anniversaries I have coming up over the next few months, now these are out of the way I may be able to concentrate on Christmas cards.  Like a lot of you lovely ladies I usually have my birthday cards made early in the year and Christmas cards finished by September, but not this year.  Where has the time gone?   Maybe it was getting the new puppies this year that put me back, or was it all the holidays my other half booked and dragged me away on lol.

So here is what I have been beavering away at over the past few days trying to catch up.

First my son's card made using a spellbinders embossing folder, distress inks and treasure cold.  The stamps are Tim Holtz Road Trip (I have added a "Rout 66" stamped image too, after I had taken the photo).


Next my dauter-in-law's birthdy card, I used a flourish stamp she bought me as a Christmas present, embossed and coloured the card with distress inks.  The image from Lavinia Stamps was stamped in black, embossed and coloured with promarkers.

Next my Sister-in-law's 60th birthday and an anniversary card.  Not very good photos (much too dark) the weather is not playing ball!  Craft and cream card stamped in brown, a little ribbon and bling, die cut and sewing.

Well that's it for now, off to play around with some Tim's Tags, all the messy stuff is out so it may turn out to be a very messy afternoon.

Hi Sylv, you have been busy. Love the embossing folder you used on the first card. Don't think I've seen that one before. The embossed flourish on the second card is gorgeous. I should use this technique more. It's so effective.
