Hello Friends! Today, some of the Kat Scrappiness team members are participating in the Cat Lover's Blog Hop with Her Peaceful Garden and Kat Scrappiness is offering a Prize for the Hop. This is the 7th Annual Hop and we are thrilled to be one of the many Sponsors who are participating.
I've embossed a panel with an oldie but goodie Halloween Embossing folder from Darice. I blended shades of orange, purple and black distress oxide inks to get a spooky background. I've also inked a die cut circle with distress oxide inks for a landing area for the focal image.

Hello Friends and Happy Wednesday! I'm on the Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge Blog today, along with some of my teammates, to share mid-week inspiration. The challenges at Jan's have been on hiatus for the summer and will resume the 1st of November.
Jan has been very busy this summer creating new sets and one of those sets is Southern Bouquet, which I am featuring today.
I've created a 5" square card and colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. I've kept the design simple, only matting the focal panel with a black mat.

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing my submission for the Altenew Academy Level 2 Course: With a Twist. I had no idea what this course was going to entail but I was impressed with the "Twists" on familiar techniques.
For my project, I used the Faux Embossing Technique that was covered in the course. I wasn't quite sure what faux embossing was and had a different idea of what it may be, only to be surprised this technique is easy to create and very effective.
I started with stamping several of the blooms and leaves from the Altenew Watercolor Blooms Stamp and Coordinating Die Bundle in an Autumn color palette. After inks were thoroughly dry, I die cut all with the coordinating dies.
