Spring has sprung!

Here's a little card I made to practice my embossing skillz. You have to know about me, that I only enjoy the part where I get to pretend to torch the paper with the heat gun. Everything else is pretty much torture for me. It may sound insane, but as much as I love the end-product of stamping, I'd much rather draw the images myself, as I have a totally different experience with paint, and don't even get me going on the whole fussy cutting... but enough of how my brain works, here's the card:
The scalloped border was from a MS punch.

I made the twirly stem myself! The birdie was from M's dollar bin, behind him is a stamped & embossed image as well.

The ribbon is from my stash- I've only had it for over 10 years.  Crazy!

  1. Gorgeous and cheery card Raquel!! Love the colors. I just got a heat gun and some embossing powders, but when I went to emboss, all of the powder blew off of the image!? I guess I need some stickier embossing pads LOL.

Cricut Explore Air 2 Dreamcatcher Tutorial

Thank  you for joining me!
Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
