CAS Mix Up Reminder

Hi Everyone,

I have been asked to be guest designer at the CAS Mix-Up challenge.
You may have seen my first card HERE.

And now you'll see my reminder card for this fabulous challenge.
The DT supplies ample information about the topic and one can learn so much! 
This month topic is all about embossing folders. If you are like me, you have a huge supply of them - but rarely used.... I am so glad I had an excuse to put at least one of them in action!

For this card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and smeared it with Creative Expressions metallic gliding polish. I die cut the flower using a Penny black die and gold shimmer paper. The little sentiment is an ancient one from Papertrey. I also added a few gold gems.

So glad I found an excuse for my embossing folder. I should use them more frequently. If you feel the same way - just play along!

Here is a compilation of all the Embossing Folder Tutorials:

5 Ways with Embossing Folders: Kim Dellow (4:41)
Double Texture Embossing: DOstamping (11:19)  
Distress Watercolor Dry Embossing: Splitcoaststampers (written tutorial)

I hope to see your card linked up at the CAS Mix-Up challenge!

As I have a huge hoard of folders and a great love of dry embossing, you'd think this would be an easy one to enter. After seeing your fabulous entries, I'm gonna give a try. This one is as good as the first.

I agree, I have a lot of embossing folders and rarely use them. This is just beautiful with the gilding polish. The shimmer paper made a wonderful flower to add. Gorgeous!

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!

Or you can see the same thing on my photo tutorial. With mirror
