TMS#104

Good Tuesday morning! Today I have a card to share that uses a fun technique...using dies to dry emboss. I like that it adds a bit of interest to a CAS card...it's easy too! Here's a tutorial if you'd like to give it a try.

First I dry embossed my card with a Spellbinder's die, next I stamped my image on DP before cutting it out with a coordinating die that was 1 size smaller. I added some grosgrain ribbon, popped up my image panel, and last added a button threaded with twine. It's a very simple card, but I like how it turned out. I think next time I may move the embossed panel up so there's more room for a sentiment at the bottom. I had forgotten how much I enjoy stamping with colored ink...it does all the work for you, so no time consuming coloring!

Images: SU! Branch Out
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! First Edition DSP
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, and Real Red
Embellies: PTI Vintage Cream Grosgrain Ribbon, PTI Pure Poppy Button, Cream Twine (my stash)
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

Thanks for stopping by today; I hope you will hop on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to see what the rest of the DT has created.

This card makes me happy! I love the CAS design, the pop of red, and that's one of my fave SU sets.

I LOVE this sweet CAS card!! The little pop of red with the boots and button is great against the kraft and script BG! I love tree images and this one I've ogled but never bought - lol! Would you believe I've never dry embossed using a Nestie?! Not sure what "sandwich" to use, but love the subtle frame it creates! Thanks again for your sweet comment on my blog! Have a great day!

This is a great CAS card. I love the look of this dry embossing with dies but I have yet to try it. Maybe with your inspiration today will be the day!! I particularly like the tree on top of the text - great effect!

Angela, Love the print panel with the image stamped on it, brilliant. The red boots are a great pop of color. I actually have a pair of red rain boots just like those, lol! Awesome take on that sketch.
