Always Lifting You Up


I am so excited to be here as a new Design Team Member for Can You Handle The Pressure? where the theme is always Anything Goes with an Embossing Folder and an optional twist. Heat embossing is welcome, but not required. An Embossing Folder must be used. For this challenge, the twist is flowers. 

To create my card, I used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder that I have had in my stash for ages called Grace's Frame. I love the simplicity and elegance of it, and thought it would be the perfect stage for these beautiful floral Washi die cuts made with Pinkfresh Studio's English Garden Washi Tape & Die Set. I arranged several of the die cuts and popped them up on the embossed panel. I popped up the embossed panel with fun foam, and adhered it to my card base. To complete my card, I stamped a sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio's Always Uplifting stamp set with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and heat embossed with WOW clear embossing powder.

Please head over to the Can You Handle The Pressure? Challenge Blog and check out the wonderful projects that the Design Team has created to inspire you. Dive into your embossing folder stash and add some pressure!

Oh I am so very happy for you, Stephanie! This is a family of challenges that I really admire - so fun, and with the four inspiration photos one will never be at a loss for ideas!
Such a fabulous, embossed frame - love the size of it. Just the prettiest place to plant those washi blooms!
