Embossing (Dry) Challenge

The East Wind launched yet another great image this month and I had so much fun creating this piece for my neighbour who's an avid gardener.

When I first met her and her husband, I got a chance to see her garden and found out she was giving away some strawberry plants.  I gladly took some with me home and began planting.

A couple weeks ago, she gave us some roma tomatoes, a cantaloupe and some pepper plants.

So I decided to make this card for her.


I took a couple pictures to show the embossing and some of the supplies used.
I forgot to include a rad stamp roller I used as a background image on the card.
The "weeds" were cut using my laser cutter and I glued them down.

Quite the fun project.

Until next time and come say hi or subscribe for more inspiration.  I'm not an avid card maker but I sure like to collect tools and try out a new technique.

Mother's Day Challenge at TEW

It's been several months since I participated in Unky's challenges at

This month's challenge using die cuts or punch, I decided to use my tag punch to create a gift tag.

Since Unky's digis could be resized easily, I was able to print 9 tags on one standard 8.5"x11" card stock and cor away using copic markers and coloring pencils.
I finished the tag with the tag punch and distressed it with chalk ink and some twine.

Hope you enjoy!

Unky's blog runs 2 challenges a month with freebies like this one every month.

And don't forget to call your mom!
