Emboss It at Try it on Tuesday

Our new challenge at TioT this fortnight is all about Embossing , what kind of embossing is up to you.
I used texture paste through a Tim Holtz stencil on an ink blended background. When the paste was completely dry I replaced the stencil and coloured over the flowers using Oxide inks.
I added some die cut flowers coloured with Picked Raspberry, over a heat embossed A&C  topper and a heat embossed birthday sentiment to finish.
The rest of the team have been very creative with their embossing, so please pop over to TioT's where you will find all the challenge details.
 Extra Grandma duties lately have kept me out of the craft room and at almost three and a half, the twins are so full of energy and curiosity I'm exhausted when they go home, but I wouldn't change anything, not even the finger prodding my nose at 6.30 on a Wednesday morning to wake me up after Tuesday's sleepover!
Thanks for calling in,

Mid Month Inspiration at Stamping Sensations.

It's time for some inspiration for the current mood board challenge at Stamping Sensations 

I've taken then green and flowers  and circles from the bottom left for my inspiration and made a summer floral wreath.
I've used Lavinia stamps for all the flowers and leaves along with a Birthday greeting.

The rest of the DT have some gorgeous samples to show, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Thanks for calling in, Avril xx

Small Things at TioT

Small Things is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday this fortnight, so I opted to alter a little chocolate box.

I gave the top a coat of Gesso to cover the printed description on the top of the box, leaving the gold edge.  I then made a template of the heart shape and cut the top layer from a printed napkin, which I applied with DecoArt Decou-page and that was it, very simple.

The rest of the Design Team have some great samples to show, so please pop over to the home page of the challenge.

Thanks for calling in.
