Embossing folder fun

Hello, hello, hello again! I saw a challenge......sometime back....and thought I'd join in the fun.  I'm not sure how I got so de-railed but I didn't get these cards entered. 

The challenge was: Use an embossing folder to stamp with.  Just spritz some ink on the raised side of the folder and press it onto your card stock. Fun and quick.....CAS too!  I added an embedded die cut hello and it was finished.........................
BUT the embossing folder was laying there with some ink still on it........I gave it a spritz of water, inserted some card stock and ran it through the embossing machine, mounted it on a pale yellow and added a couple of die cut flowers.......DONE!
Well.............this technique is so fast and simple I just had to try it again......LOL That die cut hello really got washed out by the scanner.

This is the 2nd half of the above card, all washed out too.......hmmmmm.....I might be having a problem with that scanner...............or DH fiddled with the settings!
If you are a follower of my blog, you must be wondering what card marathon I've joined.  Funny, I was wondering the same thing!!!  BUT wait there are still MORE cards to be posted......I heard that sigh and groan...LOL!
It takes me forever to write a post, I know, the way I ramble on one would never know!  So I end up making things ( a lot of things) and setting them aside, unless it is for a specific challenge.  HA, ha......this post even proves THAT doesn't always work either.  Then there comes the dreaded time of getting photos, and scans, edited, water marked and THEN getting them onto Blogger......before you can even start the post.
That explains ( in my mind anyway) why my blog posts are like waves of the ocean (very poetic huh?)  I spend time making and then try to post EVERYTHING at once..............ROTFLOL!!  There is no hope for me......I've tried to change.....honest!
Inky Hugs


  1. Hi Krisha, I love reading your blog and I've enjoyed looking at your beautiful cards this evening. They are a lovely selection. I have that same embossing folder. It is very pretty isn't it with all the flowers on.

    I have tried this technique before but haven't done it onto coloured card. How lovely yours looks on the yellow card. It reminds me of springtime. I'm certainly going to have a go at that too. Thanks for sharing. Barbxx

  2. These are wonderful . . . love the colors!

  3. Although there are times it takes me forever to make something, it takes even longer to get it on the internet. Slow computer, slow internet, each word carefully considered before saving it, all makes me wonder at times if there isn't a better way. But because I'm ONLY a blogger, I know I'll continue doing the same slow dance.

    You make INCREDIBLE cards. I'm always in awe of your cards and how you put them together. Looks like we are both doing the slow dance together, but your blog posts are often far more colorful than mine.

  4. Haha, Krisha, I enjoyed your description of how time-consuming it can be just getting a published post on our blogs! True that!! I swear I often spend way more time doing all the prep work (photos, editing, watermarking) and then writing my long-winded posts than I EVER do on the actual cards themselves!! So you are not alone! However you do it, though, we are glad you do because it's wonderful when you share your gorgeous creations like these!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Oh these are really gorgeous!!! I love your combination of colors! beautiful!!
