Stamping and embossing.

I've always liked stamping and embossing when I sw it on other people's cards and after watching some lovely demos from the lovely Sam Poole and Julia Watts I thought i'd give it a go myself.  I used the Indigo Blu flourish stamp and the flower stamp is by Creative Expressions.  I stamped the flourish stamp a couple of times using a watermark ink pad and used an antique gold embossing powder.    I then die cut the flowers out with my spellbinder flower die and cut the large flower in half and painted on mica powders on the flower die cuts.  I cut round the flourish stamp to make a border.  I embossed the background card with my Spellbinders A4 dotty folder.  The teal coloured card has another background paper which has been pin pricked all around the edge with a Tim Holtz pricking ruler.  The corners on the teal card were rounded off with a Tonic corner rounder punch.  The cards were finished off with ribbon and coloured net and a Creative Expressions dazzler.
