Embossing Cards

embossing, foil, silver, lift me up
I love embossing!
Years ago I had an enormous hot foil stamper-embossser. We had to have metal plates made with the designs we wanted embossed, and it was tricky lining everything up in the press. Now it's as easy as stamping. All you need is a heat gun, the ink, and the embossing powders and a little anti static rub.
This was my first attempt using the Stampin Up! embossing products. I learnt how to emboss this beautiful card, at one of Rani's workshops.  The Stampin Up! Lift Me Up Clear-Mount Bundle was used with silver foil for the perfume bottle. Everyone I've shown this card loves it.

Want to make an embossed card?  Contact me and join a class or buy what you need at my online store.

Cards as visual aides for sermon in church

Easter cardI made thirteen or so different Easter cards to show different aspects of the meaning of Easter - as visual aids for a sermon I preached at St. Margaret's Church in Nerang today. At the end of the formal part of the church service everyone was invited to make an Easter card.  I made a range so different skill and age levels could be catered for, from children to the elderly. I have now been asked to run a card making group at St. Margaret's Church - making welcome, baptism cards and get well soon cards etc. If you would like to come - let me know. All welcome.

​Sermon notes and cards can be seen here:

Card Making Tip

Use the tip of a pointy punch to nick a small triangular grove on either side of the card to hold the twine in place (Anna Wheaton's suggestion).
