To a wonderful friend…

Hello, my crafty friends! Today is a day that quite a few of us having been waiting for… the debut technique challenge at the new Mix It Up Challenge Blog! I’m happy to share my inspiration project for MIUCB #1 – Anything Goes + optional twist of Embossing! The embossing can be heat or dry – or both – or not at all! The optional twist is there to inspire you so it’s entirely up to you! Just to recap – we are a new monthly technique challenge blog featuring a different optional technique each month in our Anything Goes challenges. We’d love to see your mixed media projects, altered art, and/or paper crafts- cards, tags, ATCs, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and 3-D projects! Please mix it up, lol!

I created a birthday card featuring dry embossing. I’ve had this embossing folder, stamp set and dies – all from Stampin’ Up! – for months and haven’t gotten around to using them, so I thought breaking them out for this challenge would be perfect! ;)

I’m so in love with this embossing folder; I’ve seen many awesome projects created with it. This dragonfly die has fast become a favorite as well, and is just gorgeous cut from the foil cardstock. I binged on Pretty Pink Posh sequins a few weeks ago (OMG) and used two of the colors on this card. These are smaller than regular sequins and I L.O.V.E. them!

I kept the inside simple with just a stamped sentiment on a panel layered on the Kachina grass cloth cardstock.
