This is the first time I have ever used a Sizziz Die and oh my gosh...it was much simpler than I thought. The scary part is now that I have figured it out, I want more DIES!
This is a regular A2 size card. The image is Tim Holtz Alterations "Regal Crest." The ivy and shield were cut out of brown cardstock and the banner in light blue. I inked the ivy in green and the shield in dark brown with black around the edge. The banner is also inked in dark brown. The background paper is Basic Grey "Motifica" and the letter C is from my Thickers stash. Congratulations is a My Pink Stamper stamp. I also used pop dots to give the shield and banner some dimension.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
These are the new Tim Holtz embossing folders. I was so happy to get my hands on this set, but will be even happier when my other 3 sets arrive in the mail.
This is a sample I embossed to give you a better view. I used brown cardstock and then inked over the top of the embossed image. This folder is called "Bingo" and fits perfectly on an A2 card.
This folder is called "Patchwork" and also fits an A2 card. I used the same brown cardstock and then inked in dark brown. I added a touch of red to this one.
These folders seem to emboss a little deeper than a regular cuttlebug folder. Which makes inking much easier. I think these will look great on a scrapbook layout.

I am so happy to show off these beautiful tissue paper flowers that my super creative Sister-in-law (Stephanie) made. She says they are really easy to make, so I'll have to give it a try sometime.
Aren't they the cutest?! They are even more cute when my 4 year old niece carries them around the house all day...lol.
This is also another one of Steph's creations...a photo/memory board. She totally read my mind! I've been wanting to make one to go under my cabinet in my scraproom and haven't gotten around to do it. Hmm...maybe I can convince her to make one for me! =)
Hope you have enjoyed this episode of "Steph's Creations"... Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
