A2z Scrapbooking and Gold Embossing

Hi Everyone,
this is Cornelia here today using embossing paste and one of my favorite Hero Arts dies - the Palm die. You probably know that this month A2Z Scrapbooking challenge is all about using embossing paste and perhaps you want to play along! I am also keeping it clean and simple with my card:
A2z 8-2015 b

I used the Hero Arts Triangle stencil (SA059) with Wendi Vecchi Gold embossing paste. Let it dry. Added the palm leaves die cut in heavy duty vellum and a little leftover snippet from a prior card in gold. The sentiment is from the Hello Sunshine set (Cl776), heat embossed in white and mounted with foam tape.

You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
