Can You Handle the Pressure - FRUITS & VEGGIES

 Dear Ones~
  There's a new challenge over at Can You Handle the Pressure.   For this challenge blog you MUST use an EMBOSSING FOLDER on your project.  Heat embossing (with embossing powder) 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 sample:
Boy, I just don't have many fruits and veggies to chose from. But I do have this pretty retired stamp from a Stampin' Up set called Nature's Pace that I colored with my Prismas. It's small and this is a mini square card, but I love it. I thought the fern embossing folder from Stampin' Up went perfectly with the image and the patterned paper colors went well too.

The Ingredients:
SU Merry Merlot Cardstock
GKD White Cardstock
Tim Holtz Silver Metallic Cardstock
Panalissa Patterned Paper
SU Fern Embossing Folder
GKD Tapestry Embossing Folder
SU Nature's Pace Stamp Set
Prisma Color Pencils
GKD Stamp for Greeting, Set Unknown

If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this cute shaker sticker.  Don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created while you are there. And I can't wait to see all your wonderful designs!!

 Until next time dear reader, I hope you "can handle the pressure"!
Here's celebrating your CREATIVE MUSE.


  1. OH WOW ... what an amazing design! Love the colors and papers you've used and your bunch of grapes look yummy! Fabulous inspiration my friend ... thanks so much! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Great texture and I adore that sweet little grape cluster--colored perfectly I might add! Your Designer Papers are so lovely too! This is a beauty!

  3. This absolutely made me think of Italy and all the wine that I will be drinking. Seriously, I love this cute and delicate image of the grapes and that designer paper is so calming. I will always think of wine, but then Wine Not.

  4. Mmm... those grapes are mouthwatering with your beautiful coloring! The mini-card makes them look plenty big enough. The papers and colors are pretty, too. I love it all!
