Embossalicious Sneak Peaks

Hi all well you may have seen that there are some new embossing folders being released by the wonderful Crafter’s Companion called Embossalicious.

There are 12 in total, 6 of each size in 2 sizes




I have been working on some samples with the Art Deco 8x8 Frame folder. I think it’s fab!!

Here’s my card I have made:

wm Emboss

I have used the new Core’dinations super assortment – limited edition 12x12 pack for my matts and layers. I have distressed the edges using my sand it gadget.

The border strip is one of the wonderful Die’sire borders and I have again used some core’dinations which I have sanded.

I used a strip of pre printed paper which I think was from the Paintbox Poppets cd.

The image is from the wonderful Strawberry Kisses range and I have stamped onto Neenah Card Stock and coloured with Spectrum Noir pens. I added a little bit of Star Dust Stickles for that have to have sparkle.

Finally I have added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Some pearls from the Ribbon Box.


The launch  of the Embossing folders will be on Create and Craft on the 1st October. Leann will be presenting the shows. Don’t forget to tune in.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Moving along with the times – Girly

The Cd Sunday Challenge Blog – Feline Friends


Well that’s it for now.

Take care all and thanks for popping by.

I will be back tomorrow with more sneak peaks.

Take care
