Can You Handle the Pressure - Fall

 Dear Ones~

There's a new challenge up over at Can You Handle the Pressure.   For this Challenge Blog you MUST use an EMBOSSING FOLDER on your project.  Heat (wet) embossing is permitted but only in addition to your embossing folder design.  Each new challenge will have a 'TWIST' which is optional ... your choice to use or not.

The OPTIONAL TWIST for today's challenge is:


 Here's my card:
I used a couple of different embossing folders for this card. One is a basket weave and the other is that fabulous swirling leaf design. The image is heat embossed with black embossing powder and colored with alcohol inks. The wreath was die cut with 3 different dies from Stampin' Up and layered together. I love the look.

 The Ingredients:
GKD Dark Sage, Ivory and Faded Brick Card Stock
Darice Fall Leaf Embossing Folder
SU Basket Weave Embossing Folder
SU Basket of Wishes Stamp Set
SU Wreath Builder Dies
Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Stamp for Greeting
Blick Alcohol Markers
Autumn Red Nuvo Crystal Drops

If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this fabulous embossing folder, and don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created.
 Thank you so much for stopping by, your comments always make me smile. Please go take a look at the Can You Handle the Pressure blog, there's some wonderful inspiration there. You won't be sorry.
Until next time dear reader, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.
