Father's Day with EC - Guest Designer Gloria
With Father's Day around the corner, I wanted to make sure every one had one more chance to be inspired by a talented artist that is not part of the Design Team. A while back Gloria and i spoke about opportunities for her to do something with the Emerald Creek products for the Emerald Creek followers.
I have been so giddy, waiting for today, to see what she unveiled and I could not help but hop up from my chair at work.
Gloria is so talented, diverse, and amazing! I am so blessed and fortunate for people like her in my life. I actually feel blessed to have all of you in my life. The business of the craft world was daunting and overwhelming. But because all of you have participated and posted with emerald creek and me I am thrilled to be a part of this creative family.
So getting back to family, Please check out
'Making masculine cards is a fun change for me, taking me away from all the flowers and do dads and such. I still had to add some bows...but they are manly bows! I Wanted to play around with themetallic paper and the custom embossing powder that I got from the Emerald Creek store. I think it came out pretty cool, if I say so myself!'
I have to make special mention of the amazing Graphic 45 paper and the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Metallic Cardstock and Pocket Watches Embossing Folder. They worked so well for the vintage theme with the Emerald Creek Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing powder, that even I feel I need to pick up a coupe of extras not in my collections already.
