Spring has Sprung...by Stephanie

I am wondering who is seeing Spring out there, because it's not me.

Calgary is still lightly snowing.
We are still trying the break the shackles of winter here, but hope and crafting makes it feel like spring could come.
So with the possibility of Spring on the horizon, we want (maybe even need) to see a warm up featuring flowers!


Craft it, Picture it and Link it. #ECAPRIL2018

Hello! I am here to share my first Emerald Creek DT project. The theme this month is flowers and I thought Thinkerbelle was the perfect canvas to decorate my card! This is also my first experience with Emerald Creek embossing powders and I can say that I am in love with them! 

I started with coffee archival ink as I wanted the piece to have a vintage feel to it. 

I colored Thinkerbelle with various watercolor paints, alcohol markers and ink pencils. I antiqued the edges with archival ink. 




I framed the card with the absolutely beautiful Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder! The charred gold was the icing on the cake for this one. It added the perfect amount of antique gold yumminess to the edges. I felt it gave the piece a truly vintage feel. The card was finished with a scrap of sari ribbon.

Finally Spring has arrived over here in Vienna and there's an end to snowfall and chilly temperatures (instead they have risen from quite cold to extremely warm for Springtime within two days!). On my balcony the daffodils are in full bloom and their bright yellow against the green leaves inspired this rather clean and simple Spring tag.


I decided to highlight some of my favourites (besides the Baked Texture line) among Emerald Creek embossing powders from Kim's amazingly wide range and use them to create dimensional flower embellishments with loads of bright colour and shine.


And I just love the Clear Ultra Thick Gloss enamel that I put on top of some of the flowers and sprigs!


Happy Spring Time!

Hi friends! Karla here today with a beautiful mixed media card for April's challenge - Flowers! I've create a lovely card that could work for either a feminine or a masculine card using the Vintage Timepiece Stamp as my focal point.


Here's a look at the inside and the envelope using the beautiful Carnations stamp.


You can check out the process video HERE (or watch below) with lots of tricks and tips for using your embossing powders!
