Hello and welsome to this week’s challenge. I’m Barbara Campbell and I am your host.

Challenge – Let me see your Text(urize)  Be careful here,  I am using a play on words.   I want to see something on your project using Dry or Heat Embossing.  Not just text.  Check out my example.

Unabashedly upbeat. That’s pretty much the spirit ’round here!

Power Poppy appreciates the small moments of life just as much as the milestones, the inspiration you can find anywhere and everywhere. We want to soak in goodness and give back more goodness.

$25 to the Power Poppy Store. You can use on Digis or clear stamps!

Barbara’s Card

I just love this digital image from Power Poppy.  It was in her November release and is called Get Wool Soon.  I printed it out on white card stock and die cut it with Crossed stitched Circle from MFT.

After coloring with copic markers. I placed it on an embossed layer that was done with a Stampin  UP Embossing Folder, called Cable Knit.  What texture it gave this card.  Great with the yarn and knitting needles.  After embossing, I used Distress Ink in Peeled Paint to sponge over it.

I used a white heavy card stock for the base.  There is a layer of blue texture card stock over that.  Some patterned paper from Every Elle, the Sorbet collection.  A strip of scallop from the blue across the bottom to separate the two papers.

Can’t wait to see how you all do this challenge.

    The Cable Knit embossing wonderfully compliments the yarn image. I crochet. I have tried knitting. I heat embossed my sentiment on inside of card.
